Long time WWE board member resigning

Apr 20, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck

Lowell Weicker Jr., the former three-term U.S. Senator and former
Connecticut Governor, is resigning from his role as a member of the WWE’s
Board of Directors according to the Greenwich Time newspaper. Weicker said
that he’s not standing for re-election, calling his departure “just a mutual
decision.” The 79 year old caused some sparks last year after he endorsed
McMahon’s opponent in the Democratic party Chris Dodd in last year’s Senate
race but didn’t attribute that to his departure. “The two things are
entirely separate,” Weicker told the newspaper. “Being on the board and
politics are entirely separate matters.” Weicker served a total of 15 years
on the company’s Board of Directors but declined to say how much money he
received during his time.
