Another WWE release has been confirmed.
Anthony Benigno, who is listed as a staff writer for WWE, took to social media to announce his departure from the company.
Benigno bio on the WWE website reads:
Born in New York, raised in New Jersey. Graduate of NYU’s Arthur L. Carter School of Journalism (seriously), so if you read something here that was a little fancy it was probably Anthony. Writes long and shortform features as well as recaps for Raw, Total Divas and Total Bellas, as well as most pay-per-view match recaps. Co-writer, host and producer of "WWE Head to Head" on YouTube. Name’s pronounced Ben-Een-Yo. Two truths and a lie: He tried out for Tough Enough, he was in The Authority for a night, and a Superstar once called him a mean name on the radio.
It has been a hell of a ride. Thank you to all the employees and Superstars who made it a dream come true. If you’re looking for an experienced writer/editor/producer/Mario Kart champion, DMs are OPEN!— Anthony Benigno (@itsmeitstonyb) September 10, 2020
It's been reported that over 60 staff members were released by WWE on Thursday. Gerald Brisco, Sarah Stock, and Mike Rotunda were released as part of the cutbacks.
