WWE made a ton of cuts last week. Hundreds of people lost their jobs with WWE that fans might never know. Dozens of on-air talent lost their jobs as well including Yifeng, better known as Rocky.
Yifeng was released from his WWE NXT contract, but he was very grateful for the three years he spent at the Performance Center. Rocky sent an Instagram post out detailing that he explains WWE’s decision during this unprecedented time.
He also sent out a tribute to those Superstars and staff still working on the “front lines” to ensure that the company has television content.
To all my friends：
The past 3 years in WWE performance center was the most precious 3 years in my life and of great significance to me.
At this time, WWE is encountering unprecedented difficulties. I understand and accept all the decisions made by the company for me.
To the Superstars who are still working in the front line, including the staff both in front and behind the stage, I would like to pay high tribute for doing your best to help the company through the difficulties, and still present the best competition for the WWE Universe.
This end means a new beginning.
Pay homage to the past and look forward to the future.
All of my love and respect.
WWE is going through a hard time right now, but so is everyone else. The future is quite uncertain. If they open society up too soon it could start a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic as they are presently seeing elsewhere in the world.
Hopefully, everyone who was released from WWE last week will end up on their feet very soon. Rocky seems to be keeping his head up which is the best thing anyone can do right now.
What do you think about the WWE releases? Will the company eventually have to let go of more people? Sound off in our new and improved comments section!
