WWE social media manager Cody Barbierri is gone from the company. WWE put a job posting online on Thursday seeking a new person for that position, sources within WWE say that Barbierri left the company earlier this month.
Barbierri, who had been with the company since September of 2012, is now working as an independent social media consultant. The reason for his exit isn’t known as of this writing.
You may recall the name, and that’s because as reported back in August, Alberto Del Rio was released for slapping Barbierri at a WWE event for refusing to apologize for a comment that Del Rio deemed as racist. Del Rio was initially told he would be suspended and felt that was fair, but was released several days later.
