A few years ago, there was always genuine fear that WWE Superstars would be released at the drop of a hat, as several talent were cut over the years. While it has become less frequent now, there are still numerous stars being released and this week was no different. However, it appears WWE took a new approach with their latest wave of releases.

Today has delivered disappointment to numerous WWE fans, with the company opting to release several stars in its latest round of cuts. Among those affected are Xyon Quinn, Jinder Mahal, and surprisingly, Xia Li. Additionally, Veer Mahan was unexpectedly released shortly thereafter. Following them, Sanga was also released from the company.

PWInsider reports that no further WWE releases are anticipated at this time. According to word circulating among talent within the company, the handling of these releases differed from past instances. The calls were described as more apologetic and respectful towards the affected talent, in contrast to the previously more abrupt and business-like approach.

”The word among talents is that the calls to those who were cut were very different from the past.  We are told that the calls were far less curt and more apologetic and respectful towards the talents than they had been under previous Talent Relations regimes. ” 


Regardless, we will have to wait and see what will become of all the talent that were released this week, as it was still a very shocking turn of events for everyone involved.
