WWE reported great profits across the board as part of their 3rd quarter 2021 earnings call. This was followed by another round of releases on November 4th. It was previously reported that annual releases are going to become commonplace and these cuts hit the WWE Universe in a huge way.
Nia Jax’s name was one of the more surprising additions to the released list. The former women’s champion was cut today as her character is out of action with an injury. Keith Lee and Karrion Kross, two former NXT Champions that Vince McMahon didn’t know what to do with, were also cut.
Harry Smith was released before he even got to debut on television. Hit Row’s B-Fab was also part of the releases today just as Hit Row made their SmackDown debut.
NXT also lost some big names including Scarlett, Ember Moon, Oney Lorcan, and Franky Monet. There were many more on that list, each one of them had something of value they could have provided for Vince McMahon’s company.
This is a big surprise and we could hear of more names later on. If more releases come down today they will be added to the list which you can check out below.
