For those who don’t know Mark Carrano, he recently served as the Senior Director of Talent Relations. Before that, he was the Head of Talent Relations until John Laurinaitis took over a month or two ago. There is no exact date of Carrano’s WWE joining date, but the man has been with WWE for almost a decade. 

Aside from his role backstage in WWE, Carrano has also appeared in several documentaries produced by WWE. Plus, he also appeared in the infamous reality TV series – Total Divas on E! There is no guarantee if Carrano did what he did, but his reputation makes him a strong contender.

Not the first time, maybe?

Former WWE Superstars Gail Kim and Darren Young have shared how bad of a man Carrano is. Young even shared how Carrano always bogged him down with negative words during his tenure with the company. In fact, former WWE referee Mike Chioda also has the same sour feeling for Carrano.

Earlier this year, former WWE Referee Mark Chioda shared Mark Carrano was the one who added his name to the list of Superstars that were released during the Black Wednesday in April last year. Chioda said it wasn’t Triple H, Stephanie, or Vince who must’ve thought Chioda is earning way more, so let’s cut him. It was Carrano and he had the strings in his hands.


As mentioned earlier, there is no confirmation on why Mark Carrano was released from the company. But we will keep you updated as the story progresses.
