Recent reports indicate that WWE releases may be on the horizon.
According to Wrestlevotes via GiveMeSport, talent cuts are expected to occur in the upcoming weeks, prior to WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 1.
Better Wrestling Experience has also mentioned that while the specific individuals set to be released are unknown, cuts are likely to happen as part of the annual review process. These releases are not anticipated to be as significant as the cuts witnessed in 2020 and 2021 but rather a few sporadic cuts here and there.
On the other hand, Fightful Select reported that WWE CEO Nick Khan had informed individuals connected within the sports agenting world around WrestleMania that there were no planned roster cuts at that time.
Publicly, Nick Khan stated after WrestleMania that any cuts resulting from the WWE-UFC merger would not affect the wrestling company’s TV product. Nevertheless, “aggressive” cuts would still be implemented in other departments within WWE.
