For the past couple of months, WWE has let go of several employees including WWE Superstars. It all began on April 15th, with Superstars such as Mickie James, Samoa Joe, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay getting fired.

Afterwards, the company proceeded to release many from NXT and over 60 backstage employees overall have been let go since April. To make matters worse, the company released several big names from the company including the likes of Braun StrowmanAleister BlackLanaRuby Riott, Buddy Murphy and Santana Garrett.

Many fans were shocked at the release of someone like Braun Strowman, who was a former WWE Universal Champion and was paid a lot of money with his contract. Due to cuts of such a nature, speculation that the company is likely to be sold has gained steam yet again.

Former WWE writer Dave Schilling, who worked for the WWE creative team in early 2019, took to Twitter and shared his thoughts regarding WWE’s decision to fire so many Superstars suddenly. Schilling mentioned how Strowman was a top guy and Aleister Black had just received a push on WWE television last week, adding that something like this only happens if a company is trying to maximize profits before a sale.

Ummm I think WWE is for sale

You don’t cut talent assets on this level unless you are trying to maximize profits before a sale.

Braun is a legit top guy, a former world champion, and a merchandise mover. Alastair Black was getting a push on TV LAST WEEK. This is very telling.

The rumors of WWE getting sold is a yearly occurence at this point in time. However, this year the rumors have more weight behind them due to the nature of the latest cuts from the company. We will have to wait and see if the company will be sold or not.

Do you think WWE will be up for sale soon? Let us known in the comments below!
