Report: WWE To Regularly Release Talent Going Forward
WWE is "reshuffling the deck with talent"
More WWE releases are on the horizon and talent being let go is going to be a regular occurrence, according to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast.
He said: "I was told specifically that there's going to be more releases to come... This is going to be a regular thing. You're going to see these releases happen. They're reshuffling the deck with talent. They're realising that the company got very bloated with talent over the last two-three years where WWE doesn't release anybody, they hang on to people. They threw ridiculous money to guys like Gallows and Anderson."
WWE released another six Superstars, including Braun Strowman and Aleister Black, yesterday as the company continues to cut costs. This was the third set of releases in recent weeks and nine main roster wrestlers were let go in April. Six NXT talents were then released shortly after.
WWE had stockpiled an enormous amount of talent in recent years and over 300 wrestlers were reportedly on the books in early 2020.
