Following on from their cutbacks in April, WWE released more staff yesterday. Backstage producers Mike Rotunda and Sarah Stock were let go along with talent scout and former road agent Gerald Brisco.
A lot of office staff at Titan Towers were also released and Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that as many as 70 employees lost their jobs. The live events and travel divisions were hit particularly hard as WWE isn't currently touring because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. All of the staff released by the company had previously been furloughed.
Many wondered if any Superstars would be released but Meltzer reported he had been told by WWE officials that no talent will be included in the current round of cutbacks.
The company released 37 Superstars back in April, including Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson, Miro, EC3, Deonna Purrazzo and Matt Cardona. Many Superstars have since signed with All Elite Wrestling and IMPACT Wrestling, while others like Erick Redbeard have transitioned to acting.
