Longtime WWE employee’s departure from the company described as “shocking”

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, Adam Hopkins has departed WWE after working as Vice President of Communications. Hopkins had been one of the longest tenured employees for WWE since joining the company’s Fans Services department back in September 1997. In recent years, Hopkins voiced introductions for WWE NXT media calls and helped set up interviews with talents.

Johnson commented on how Hopkins’ departure “shocked” people within WWE and he noted the following regarding the matter…

“We are told that Hopkins was not the only recent exit from the company’s PR side, but certainly his exit would be among the most shocking in recent company history, with one person describing it as the equivalent of ‘Howard Finkel’ exiting.”

WWE’s Big E called Hopkins “a true professional and a great human” on Twitter.
