WWE management just started calling talents within the last 15 minutes to inform them they are being released.   We are also told WWE canceled certain training classes for tomorrow at the PC.

NXT Superstars will have a 30-day non-complete clause associated with their releases. Main roster Superstars will have a 90-day non-compete clause. It’s unknown whether B-Fab, who was just called up to SmackDown from NXT as a part of Hit Row, signed a new main roster deal yet.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
