Former WWE creative producer Ryan Katz is returning to the company and resuming his work with NXT. Katz, a member of Triple H’s original black and gold team, was released in January of this year after seven years working in NXT helping to build the brand.
Katz confirmed the news himself during the Oh, You Didn’t Know podcast with Road Dogg and as a result of his return, he is also leaving the podcast he co-created with James.
James, who was also recently re-hired to serve as VP of Live Events, said that both of them got released on the same day and now they are returning almost together.
Katz said that he still is not sure what his title will be or what his role will be moving forward but all he knows is that he’s back and was supposed to start today, but that got pushed back for a few.
The 45-year-old former wrestler joined WWE in May 2015 as Creative Producer at the Performance Center.
