Keith Lee, Karrion Kross, Nia Jax, B-Fab, More Released From WWE

Another round of mass releases

More WWE talents have been released on Thursday, following announcements of several releases earlier in the evening.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has confirmed the releases of main roster talents Keith Lee, Karrion Kross, Nia Jax, B-Fab, Harry Smith, Mia Yim, Eva Marie, and Lucha House Party members Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik, as well as NXT's Jessi Kamea, Zayda Ramier, Trey Baxter, Katrina Cortez, and Jeet Rama.

These releases come on the heels of Franky Monet, Scarlett, Ember Moon, and Oney Lorcan all being let go from WWE earlier in the day.

Bryan Alvarez of Figure 4 Weekly reported that B-Fab had just signed a new deal to remain with WWE one week ago.

Metalik of Lucha House Party had reportedly asked for his release recently. He and Dorado's former partner Kalisto just debuted on AEW Dynamite last night as Samuray del Sol.

Sapp reports that in an internal e-mail, John Laurinaitis cited "budget cuts" as the reason for the releases. WWE reported $256 million in revenues for the quarter at today's investors call, according to Alvarez.

The list of Thursday's cuts include the following:
