employees appear at Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).

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 in 30 days or otherwise, that information is noted.

Employees are generally assigned to a specific brand, though they may make occasional special appearances on another brand. The WWE Tag Team Champions and the WWE Divas Champion can regularly appear on both Raw and SmackDown as those titles (due to being unified) can be defended on either show. All employees can appear on WWE Superstars, as that show is designed to feature both brands.

WWE refers to its male performers as "Superstars" and its female performers as "Divas". The term "Superstars" is also occasionally used to refer to all WWE performers, regardless of gender. The female wrestlers of the show WWE NXT are called "Rookie Divas". They also can appear on either Raw or SmackDown with their assigned "Pros", depending on whichever brand their pro belongs to, or by a brand's General Manager for a special match.
