WWE axed a number of Superstars from their payroll last week, but they might not be totally gone yet.
Each main roster Superstar who was released was given a 90-day non-compete clause. This means that they will be paid for the next three months.
Since those released Superstars are being paid, Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE will book some of them during this time.
“So, the deal is some of this talent and Drake Maverick is another one. Since they’re being paid for 90 days some of them will continue to be booked.
WWE hasn’t used released Superstars in the past after letting them go, but it appears that they could have. A lot can happen in three months as well. It appears WWE might plan on using a few people during the time when they’re cutting their checks as a part of their 90-day non-compete clause.
What do you think about WWE using released Superstars on television like this? Drake Maverick dropped a video showing how much this opportunity means to him. Sound off in our new and improved comments section!
