CEO of Barstool Sports Erika Nardini resigns from WWE Board of Directors

Erika Nardini, CEO of Barstool Sports, has resigned from her position on the WWE Board of Directors. The WWE made the announcement this Friday. Nardini made the decision in relation to Penn Entertainment acquiring Barstool Sports in full stake. They stress there was no bad blood, and Nardini is focusing on the next chapter.

Barstool Sports gave Nardini her title in 2016, and she rose to success from there. Nardini joined the WWE Board of Directors in October of 2020. The world was in the heat of the pandemic and WWE was performing in front of empty arenas at that time. Anybody joining the WWE Board of Directors at that time certainly helped with major decisions regarding the company, as WWE was one of the only sports mediums not to shut down.

What does this mean for WWE?

WWE announced that Michelle McKenna and JoEllen Lyons Dillon would fill the Board of Directors, as Erika Nardini is leaving. This company is no stranger to shifts in personnel as of late. Stephanie McMahon and Nick Kahn recently took over as Co-CEOs of the company, with Paul Levesque (Triple H) named Head of Creative and Talent Relations. Those moves were made amongst allegations of sexual misconduct and the retirement of longtime WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.

The company has adjusted incredibly well to all the major shifts. Fan response to the company has been on the rise as of late. Losing the CEO of Barstool Sports may not play in their favor, but with the recent reports that Roman Reigns is set to defend his title against international web sensation Logan Paul at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia, they seem to be continuing upon their path of bringing in new fans from other outlets.
