In a major move by WWE, senior director Mark Carrano has reportedly been let go from his role, per reports.
Wrestling INC was the first to report Carrano’s firing with other outlets confirming the news.
Fightful Select reports that several people from WWE reached out to the site indicating Carrano was the person being blamed for the trash bag incident involving Mickie James. Earlier in the day, James posted a video of her belonging being sent by WWE in a trash bag. This led to public responses from Paul Levesque and Stephanie McMahon stating the person responsible was fired. WWE has not publicly commented on Carrano’s status or confirmed his role in the incident.
There had been other changes to the talent relations department earlier this week with Mike Johnson of PWinsider.com reporting that Director of Talent Relations Nicole Zeoli was no longer with the company. Johnson added that referee John Cone, who worked in the talent relations department as its senior referee, is no longer with the department but will remain as a referee.
Two other departures reported by Johnson are Mead Rust, who served as Vice President of Communications, and Joe Villa, who was the company’s Manager of Publicity and Corporate Communications.
POST Wrestling has reached out to WWE specifically asking about Carrano and will update if we receive a response.
