WWE expected to release talent [update: release confirmed, additional news of further firings]

PWInsider are reporting that WWE are expected to announce talent releases shortly.

It has been quite a while since WWE mass-released talents, primarily due to Linda McMahon’s failed Senate runs. During her campaigns, she promoted herself as a ‘job creator’, so WWE talent getting fired would reflect poorly on that. Now her campaign is over, WWE are expected to trim the fat of their roster, especially with the recent implementation of development wrestlers being promoted to the main roster.

We will update this post when releases are announced.




PWInsider are reporting that Trent Barretta is the first confirmed release, and also that their WWE source says that “there probably would not be many additional releases tonight, but it was possible.”
