Kevin Dunn has had a job with the WWE since the 1980s and is currently serving in his current role as Executive Vice President of Telivision production for the WWE. Many people have wondered how Kevin Dunn has managed to keep his job in the WWE for so long, despite Vince McMahon historically not being afraid of firing anyone, including long time friends and colleagues.
There is an old story out there that would maybe shine a light on this question. The story goes that Kevin Dunn’s father, Dennis Dunn, had saved several WWF tapes from a burning trailer and as a result Vince McMahon felt indebted to Dennis and vowed to give Dennis and his son Kevin jobs for life.
However, Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio has claimed this is not the reason Kevin Dunn seemingly has a safe job in WWE, despite saying this is probably the reason why Kevin Dunn was first employed by Vince McMahon. Dave Meltzer says that the likelihood why Kevin Dunn has stayed employed for so long is that he is someone who Vince McMahon can “deal with”.
