WWE released several talents from their contracts in recent memory, which began with the likes of Mickie James and Chelsea Green being released back in April. Last month, Bray Wyatt was released which shocked the pro wrestling world. Bobby Lashley claims that backstage morale is still high despite those cuts.
The company released even more NXT Superstars in their latest batch of releases, including the likes of Bronson Reed and Bobby Fish. In total, WWE has released 52 Superstars so far this year. More cuts could be on the way as WWE continues their efforts to trim the bottom line.
While speaking to TV Insider, Bobby Lashley talked about the backstage mood and morale after the latest slew of releases from the company. Lashley claimed that the backstage mood is still good.
“I think the feeling is good. We get tested with so many things. Everyone will say, ‘This is it. This is the downfall of WWE.’ It’s never going to be. We have so much talent in WWE. WWE is never going to be beaten or contested. It’s always going to be the flagship of professional wrestling. That’s never going to change.”
WWE is unlikely to stop releasing more talents anytime soon as the company looks to change things up in a big way eventually. We wonder who will be released next. Hopefully, WWE doesn’t fire anyone else from this point on, but this is sadly not likely the case. Keep checking back with Ringside News as we monitor this ongoing story.
