As previously reported, WWE has released a number of Superstars over the past few days and the reason given was budget cuts and now it seems that the promotion will be making more talent cuts, which will reportedly be coming from the NXT brand.
According to online reports, there are rumors and speculations going around that more talent cuts are coming, which could reportedly be sometime this weekend, with the focus entirely on NXT.
This past Thursday, WWE released a total of 10 main roster talents, with the reason being that it was due to budget cuts and this interestingly happened exactly a year after WWE had their COVID-19 budget cuts on April 15th, 2020. The talents released on Thursday were Samoa Joe, Mojo Rawley, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Tucker, Wesley Blake, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Kalisto and Bo Dallas. All of them are under a standard 90-day non-compete clause with WWE and are not allowed to sign with other promotions until Wednesday, July 14th.
There is no word yet on when exactly these additional talent cuts will happen and who are the talents that will be released, but updates will be provided as it becomes available.
