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.

While speaking on the In The Kliq podcast, Britt Baker discussed WWE’s constant releases and stated that WWE doesn’t even need a Forbidden Door because they release so much talent.


“I mean, obviously one of my best friends and who I think one of the best female wrestlers out there today is Deonna Purrazzo. She wrestles for IMPACT. So I would love to definitely lock up with her one day. Not to kind of turn the tides here but unfortunately, WWE has been releasing so many talents that right now you don’t even have to cross any “Forbidden Doors.” There are just so many amazingly talented free agents right now, period. There’s so many that I would love to wrestle I’ve never wrestled before.”

Even AEW President Tony Khan previously stated that WWE Superstars don’t sign real contracts whatsoever. 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.
