WWE Just Became A MUCH Better Place To Work (Thanks To You Know Who...)

Objectively good news for everyone currently on WWE's payroll.

Stephanie McMahon triple H

WWE's new regime has this week moved to increase the number of paid holiday dates its employees are entitled to take off, reports Fightful Select.

Co-CEOs Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan, along with EVP and head of creative Paul 'Triple H' Levesque, led an all-employee meeting to announce the expansion to WWE's holiday schedule. This came on Tuesday, with the new regime adding Veteran's Day, Juneteenth, Thanksgiving eve, and a floating date to its list of paid days off.

All of the following are now included:-


- New Year's Day (1 Jan)

- MLK Day (third Monday of January)


- President's Day (third Monday of February)

- Memorial Day (last Monday of May)


- Juneteenth (19 June)

- Independence Day (3 & 4 July)

- Labor Day (first Monday of September)

- Veteran's Day (11 November)

- Thanksgiving Break (22-24 November)

- Holiday Break (25-29 December)

Fightful notes that the paid holiday expansion has seemingly boosted WWE morale, which is something Khan, McMahon, and Levesque have made a concentrated effort on since ascending to power.

WWE's road schedule has been significantly reduced over the past few years. Where once the promotion was known for its intense, demanding workload, a diminished house show schedule means that beyond television tapings and pay-per-views, events are typically reserved for Saturdays and Sundays now. While still busy, the schedule is a far cry from the days of constant travel to shows five, six, or even seven days a week.
