WWE released a mini-roster’s worth of Superstars from their contract today and more could be coming. This all stated after WWE President Nick Khan demanded that they release more people during meeting eariler today. The list is apparently a long one and more Superstars could be on the chopping block.
Nick Khan, who just bought second home in California, is apparently willing to take all the heat for firing people today. He was the one in the meeting today who pushed for more releases and that is exactly what happened.
According to a report from Fightful’s Sean Sapp, Khan is 100% willing to take the blame for today’s cuts. He also didn’t seem to care about the current situations that each released Superstar is going through.
“We were told that Nick Khan specifically is willing to take the heat and did not seem concerned about prior plans, projects, who the person or married to, how long they’ve been signed, or what they have going on.”
Fans are not happy about this situation and they are blaming Nick Khan as well. His name trended on Twitter within the pro wrestling bubble for a while today for that very reason. The jury is still out regarding what Khan’s endgame is with all of this budget slashing, but it is certainly creating a WWE that runs on a lower budget.
What’s your take on this situation? Is WWE gearing up to sell or do they just want to make their investors rich? Sound off in the comments!
