WWE is an American professional wrestling promotion based in Stamford, Connecticut. WWE personnel consist of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play & color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, road agents, creative writers & various other positions. Executives & Board of Directors are also listed.

WWE employees' contracts range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals & they appear as independent contractors. Employees on the main roster appear on WWE television programming, pay-per-views & at live events while developmental employees appear on WWE NXT.

Personnel are organized by their role in WWE. Their ring name is on the left and their real name is on the right. If someone is inactive for any reason, due to injury, suspension, not appearing in 30 days or otherwise, that information is noted. WWE refers to its performers as superstars.

WWE Ambassadors are employees/performers that have contracts to make periodic appearances-either on WWE TV or for promotional events-serving as public representatives/spokespeople for the company.
