In the past, WWE gained notoriety for its unexpected talent releases, creating a sense of uncertainty among its roster. While these cuts are less frequent now, they still happen from time to time, as evidenced by the latest series of departures. Unfortunately, Cameron Grimes is one of the recent casualties of WWE’s ongoing roster changes and now the backstage reaction to his release has been revealed.

Last week, WWE fans were met with disappointment as the company announced a new round of talent releases. This latest wave saw several notable stars let go, including Xyon Quinn, Jinder Mahal, Von Wagner and yesterday, Cameron Grimes.

According to Fightful Select, Cameron Grimes’ release from WWE came as a surprise to many within the company for several reasons. Firstly, his skill set and track record were distinct from those typically targeted for cuts. Grimes had been with WWE for over five years, had established a strong following in NXT, and consistently improved his in-ring performance.

Another reason for the unexpected nature of his release was his regular presence at TV tapings, despite not always being used on-screen. Grimes was at last week’s Smackdown, suggesting that he was still actively involved with the company.


”We’re told that Cameron Grimes’ release was unexpected by many in the company for various reasons. One, was that his skill set and track record did not match with others that were cut from the company. While he’d been with WWE for over 5 years, he’d gotten over in NXT, and seemed to constantly improve in the ring. Another reason the release was a surprise was that Grimes was at last week’s Smackdown, and actually a regular at TV, even when he wasn’t being used.”

WWE has seemingly adopted a new approach in handling these recent releases compared to their previous practices. The future holds uncertainty regarding Cameron Grimes’ next steps, so we’ll have to see what’s next in store for him.
