WWE has been releasing several employees including WWE Superstars for the past few months. This began with the release of Superstars such as Chelsea Green and Mickie James in April. An astounding number of talents have been released this year.

Back in June, WWE held yet another round of cuts from the company and it included several big names. Among them include the likes of Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. Unfortunately, WWE released several Superstars again a couple of weeks ago. This included the likes of Nia Jax, Karrion Kross, Keith Lee, Mia Yim and more.

That was not all as WWE has released even more talents this week. This included the likes of John Morrison, Drake Maverick, Tegan Nox. According to PWInsider, WWE has released over 80 talents.
