World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is a professional wrestling promotion based in Stamford, Connecticut. Employees in WWE consist of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, script writers and various other positions. Executives and board of directors are also listed.

WWE talents' contracts range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals and they appear as independent contractors. Talent on the main roster appear on specific brands for WWE television programming, pay-per-view and at live events.

Employees and management are organized by role within the promotion. The ring name of the employee is written on the left, while the employee's real name is on the right. If a wrestler is inactive for any reason, due to injury, suspension, not wrestling for 30 days or otherwise, that information is noted. Although employees are generally assigned to a specific brand, all employees are subject to appear on any brand.

Also, all employees can appear on WWE Superstars, as that show is designed to feature all three brands.
