WWE released a lot of on-screen talent and tons of office workers and other backstage staff on April 15th. The company did not reveal any NXT releases and those are still apparently coming out.
Rachael Ellering, who wrestled as Rachael Evers in NXT for a while was released as well. She confirmed this with a video about the announcement. Her boyfriend Kassius Ohno was also released during that same wave.
Now the list of WWE NXT releases is up to 11. It is possible that there are more NXT releases that haven’t been revealed. The WWE Performance Center has been closed so there’s no place for them to show up to work.
You can check out the full list of revealed WWE NXT releases below:
- Kassius Ohno
- Tino Sabbatelli
- Taynara Conti
- Cezar Bononi
- Mars Wang
- Mohamed Abdelfattah (Mohamed Fahim)
- Marcos Gomes
- Faisal Kurdi
- Edgar Lopez
- Hussain Aldagal
- Yifeng (Rocky)
Hopefully, everyone who was released from their WWE NXT contract will land on their feet and find success elsewhere. Their 30-day non-compete clauses expire very soon. There is still no indie scene open for shows, but hopefully, that will come soon.
