WWE released several employees including WWE Superstars over the past several months. This began with the release of Superstars such as Chelsea Green and Mickie James in April 15th last year, and the year before saw another mass tax day release. An astounding number of talents have been released two years and that trend is not likely to stop.
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 the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, LinkedIn noted that WWE’s workforce has dropped by 18% over the past two years, along with an 8% drop last year. Several fields had seen a hit as well including Communications jobs and the like.
