Triple H Decided Which Talents To Release From WWE

Triple H headed up the decision making when it came to WWE's recent releases

Despite the change in regime, WWE engaged in their annual post-WrestleMania roster releases, with several wrestlers being let go. Those released from WWE throughout April were Jinder Mahal, Xia Li, Cameron Grimes, Veer, Sanga, and Xyon Quinn. 

The reasoning behind these releases were due to a lack of development and improvement in the time since they originally signed, with no creative plans too for these individuals. When it comes to who made the decision to cut this specific talent, Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter revealed it to be Triple H. It was stated that the main roster cuts are decisions made by Triple H, and even though the likes of Xyon Quinn and Von Wagner had hardly appeared or never appeared on RAW or SmackDown, they were considered as “main roster” talent. All of these names were either struggling to get TV time or were in the role of putting others over since Triple H took over WWE creative. 

When it comes to how quickly these decisions came to be, it isn’t known if much thought was put into cutting talent as Cameron Grimes revealed this week that just five days before being released, he was told not to worry and that his spot in the company was secure.
