WWE is going through another transition phase, as the company is now in the hands of a new majority shareholder, with Endeavor. A merger with the UFC might not be the only change around WWE, because it could also come with a lighter roster.

This year’s WWE Draft started off with a bang. We saw some surprising names from NXT called, and of course, Roman Reigns was part of the top pick for the entire company. You can click here to check out the entire draft picks from SmackDown.

The WWE Draft freshens up the rosters, but that could also move some people out of the spotlight. It seems that some releases could be on their way, but this isn’t anything uncommon in WWE.

Triple H’s regime hasn’t seen any sort of mass releases yet. That might change soon enough, because there are several Superstars who haven’t been seen on television in quite some time.


According to Boozer 666, who has a proven history of nailing online reports, WWE could be “filtering out” some Superstars “on all levels.” It’s sad, but it was also noted that this is the way of life in WWE.

Few names that wont be part of the draft might come to a release on agreement. There will be some filtering out on all levels of the company. Dont let journos fool you into doomsday again. Its normal. But it is definitely sad. Life moves on.

We will have to see who WWE releases next. Obviously, they could break the Internet by letting go of the right Superstar, something they haven’t shied away from doing in the past. There are quite a few names that WWE could release that would cause a lot of attention from fans.

It’s never good to see anyone lose their jobs, but WWE is always changing and sometimes that calls for someone to leave the company. With a merger with the UFC coming up soon, Endeavor might also seek to lower talent costs which could play into things as well.

What’s your take on WWE releasing talent? Who do you think will get the axe next? Sound off in the comments!
