WWE has garnered a reputation for blindsiding its talent with unexpected releases, stirring up feelings of uncertainty and unease among its roster. Despite a slight decrease in frequency, the practice persists, with the latest round of departures serving as a stark reminder. Reports have emerged regarding the backstage reaction to WWE’s recent talent purges.

Just last week, disappointment rippled through the WWE fanbase as the company made the difficult decision to release several stars in its latest round of cuts. Among those affected were Xyon Quinn, Jinder Mahal and Von Wagner. And as if adding to the somber mood, yesterday brought the news of Cameron Grimes‘ release as well.

The recent string of talent departures has cast a shadow over the backstage atmosphere, with reports from Fightful Select painting a picture of a somewhat subdued mood due to the abrupt exits, particularly that of NXT fixture Von Wagner. Wagner’s departure struck a chord with many backstage, as he had established himself as a familiar and respected figure within the NXT brand.

“There was a somewhat somber atmosphere backstage due to recent releases, including NXT staple Von Wagner.”


As the dust settles, speculation looms over whether WWE will continue its streak of releases in the coming months, leaving fans anxious about who might be next on the chopping block.
