Rich Hering, who was employed by the WWE for more than 50 years, and received the 2021 Warrior Award, retired from his role with the company last month.

Hering, who most recently worked for the company as their Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Risk Management, retired shortly after Endeavor’s acquisition of WWE was finalized, and that while the WWE would have wanted Hering to remain with them, he made the decision to quietly step down from his role and exit the WWE.
