WWE had a history of cutting large chunks of talent at the same time during the pandemic, and it was all in the name of budget cuts. It appears that this practice might have fallen by the wayside in recent memory, because we haven’t seen a firing spree like that in a while.

Despite the fact that there were rumors of talent cuts on the main roster after WrestleMania, everything stayed intact. Then there were no cuts after the 2023 WWE Draft, despite a lot of NXT call-ups.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that there is no word on talent cuts right now. Over the years, that has been a trend, but it seems that there isn’t much discussion about the idea backstage in WWE.

Fightful spoke to numerous talent and staff After the last week, and they claim they hadn’t heard anything about rumored cuts to talent throughout this year that was circulated by shoddy sources. Even after the rumors emerged, there wasn’t much discussion about it backstage.


WWE made a lot of big cuts during the pandemic, but Triple H brought back everyone he could when he took over once again. After all, Vince McMahon fired some of Triple H’s favorites, like Bronson Reed and Karrion Kross, who were tremendous assets in NXT.

We will have to see if WWE surprises everyone and cuts a bunch of talent in the near future. Their merger with UFC is about to go through sometime this year, so it might be a completely different situation once that happens.

What’s your take on WWE firing a lot of people at once on the roster? Do you think this is ever a good thing to shake things up? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think about this situation!
