WWE has seen quite a bit of changes in the past few weeks. Several members of WWE’s backstage crew including writers and producers have left the company. There are also a couple of Superstars who want out as well.
Arn Anderson was fired and this kind of set off the new trend. He was famously let go after Alicia Fox showed up intoxicated to a WWE house show and he let her work a six-woman tag team match anyway. It should be noted that many people involved in this situation don’t believe that Anderson knew Foxy was inebriated at all.
Road Dogg stepped down from his position as co-head writer of SmackDown Live. This was a surprising turn of events. Although Road Dogg is not 100% gone from WWE, he is taking a hiatus.
R.D. Evans quit before he could be fired during the WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony. He was a writer for a couple of years. All of this happened when Bret Hart mentioned Vince McMahon in his speech. He has since released a very funny video about the event, but that doesn’t help the fact that now he’s looking for work.
Dave Schilling is gone from WWE after only being on-board for a matter of weeks. He is a former Vice writer and has a lot of experience, but now he is also looking for other means of income.
Luke Harper asked for his WWE release last week. It has now been reported that not only is WWE not going to grant that release request, but they are also tacking on another six months to his contract because of time he missed while away with an injury.
Sasha Banks wants out of WWE as well. She requested her WWE release over WrestleMania weekend, but it was not granted either. Now it is said that the two sides are at a stalemate.
Dustin Rhodes better known as Goldust requested his WWE release in January and after Vince McMahon initially said no he changed his mind. Triple H apparently had to step in and convince Mr. McMahon to let Rhodes leave, but now he is booked to face his brother Cody Rhodes at AEW’s Double Or Nothing event.
Dean Malenko is the latest notable name to depart from WWE. He wanted to leave the company so he quit. There is no word on what he will be doing next in his career, but he is already booked for Starrcast.
