WWE has released a lot of Superstars and fired a ton of employees in recent memory. They have also started their live touring efforts once again, and they are doing so with a smaller staff. The workload and creative direction in WWE seems to have led to upset individuals in the company.
Karl Anderson replied to a tweet from Sean Ross Sapp where he posted what Vince McMahon said about giving AEW some more of their talent. It was a very cryptic line that wasn’t lost on anyone as The Chairman said: “I’m not sure where their investments are. When it comes to their talent, perhaps we could give them some more”
Anderson revealed that he has received texts from current WWE Superstars who are not happy. It seems that the pro wrestling landscape changing might have encouraged them to become a bit more vocal about their displeasure with WWE.
The amount of unhappy texts I get from people there, well, the whole professional wrestling world is waiting for ya.. @IMPACTWRESTLING @AEW @njpw1972
We’ll have to see if WWE releases any more Superstars. It seems likely, especially after Vince McMahon dropped that line during the company’s 2nd quarter 2021 investors’ call.
