WWE has been releasing several employees including WWE Superstars for the past several months. This began with the release of Superstars such as Chelsea Green and Mickie James in April last year. An astounding number of talents have been released last year and it seems the company already started releasing more talents 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 including John Morrison, Drake Maverick, Tegan Nox. WWE also decided to kick off the new year in the worst way possible as they released the likes of William Regal, Road Dogg, Timothy Thatcher, Danny Burch, Allison Danger, and Ace Steel along with writer Ryan Katz.
According to Fightful, WWE’s latest slew of releases were seemingly done in order to remove employees hired by Triple H.
A ton of shocking NXT personnel cuts came on Wednesday, with WWE telling Fightful “With the continued evolution of NXT 2.0, we’ve decided to part ways with some of the staff based in our Performance Center. We thank them for their many contributions throughout the years and wish them the best.” Unanimously, the talent and staff familiar with the PC, NXT, and NXT 2.0 have said this is directly to remove numerous Triple H hires, with the exception being Allison Danger. WWE officials we spoke with didn’t deny this, and even said as much in their statement, in kinder terms.
This resulted in a huge overhaul, and much of the Triple H-era NXT names being let go of the company.
Over 90 talents have been released by WWE in the past year or so. WWE is determined to release as many talents and members of their staff as they can at this point in time and it is highly unlikely they will stop anytime soon. Unfortunately, we have to see who will be next on the chopping block.
