Rumor Mill - Backstage News on Why Top WWE Executive Was Recently Released

WWE Executive Vice President of Content Lisa Lee Fox was recently fired from the company. Fox had worked with WWE since 1995 and most recently headed up the WWE writing team, reporting directly to Triple H and Vince McMahon. She also was one of the officials in charge of the WWE Network and TV content.

While the exact reason for her firing remains unknown, Fox was the point person for WWE’s bid on the old Paul Boesch Houston Wrestling tape library. It turns out that NWA’s Bruce Tharpe made the winning bid and got the library instead of WWE. This led to the NWA starting their own streaming service with many matches featuring WWE Legends.

While the NWA’s streaming service obviously won’t directly compete with the WWE Network, WWE did not want a similar service started by another wrestling company that features big name matches.
