WWE is a professional wrestling promotion based in Stamford, Connecticut. WWE personnel consists of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, script writers, and various other positions. Executives and board members are also listed.
WWE contracts typically range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals. WWE describes most personnel as "independent contractors." Since the reintroduction of WWE's brand extension in 2016, personnel on the main roster are assigned to one of three major global brands - flagship brands Raw and SmackDown, as well as NXT. Specialty brands in WWE include 205 Live, which is for male wrestlers 205 lbs. and under (designated by WWE as cruiserweights), and NXT UK, which is for wrestlers based in the United Kingdom.
Main roster personnel primarily appear on Monday Night Raw, SmackDown Live, and NXT, while cruiserweight wrestlers appear on 205 Live and wrestlers from NXT UK appear on their own weekly show, respectively.
Personnel can also appear on WWE's other weekly television programming, as well as pay-per-views, and on untelevised live events.
Personnel in WWE's developmental system are assigned to train at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. UK-based developmental wrestlers train at the UK Performance Center in London, England.
As WWE has partnerships with the U.S. independent promotion Evolve, Scotland's Insane Championship Wrestling, England's Progress Wrestling, and Germany's Westside Xtreme Wrestling, wrestlers from those groups may also make periodic appearances at WWE events and on WWE programming.
