WWE Board of Directors member Connor Schell resigned from his position effective yesterday, July 6. The resignation was confirmed in a new SEC filing by WWE.
“Mr. Schell resigned from the Board due to an increased slate of responsibilities resulting from his new, expanded role at the newly formed The North Road Company, a global, multi-genre content studio,” the filing said. “Mr. Schell’s decision to resign from the Board was not due to any dispute or disagreement with the Company, its management or the Board on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.”
Schell formed part of the independent board that was investigating Vince McMahon over the $3 million hush money payment to a former employee. That now leaves the WWE Board of Directors with 11 members, four of which are executive members.
