Update on Possible WWE Talent Releases: New Report

Contrary to earlier-year rumors about planned WWE releases, recent reports suggest those rumors were baseless. According to Fightful Select, discussions with various WWE talents and staff members in the past week revealed that there was no knowledge of any potential talent cuts throughout the year, as was inaccurately spread by unreliable sources. These rumored releases didn’t even register as a topic of conversation backstage, highlighting the lack of widespread awareness about potential roster changes.

Although WWE executed several rounds of mass releases during the COVID-19 pandemic, there hasn’t been a significant number of releases from the main roster since late 2021. Instead, the organization reintroduced several wrestlers in 2022 under the leadership of Triple H as WWE Chief Content Officer. However, the year 2023 has seen a scarcity of new signings due to an informal hiring freeze. Notable names like Jay White, Tama Tonga, and Trinity generated interest, but WWE has yet to follow through on signing them. Notably, Brian Pillman Jr. is poised to become WWE’s primary signing for the year.

Despite the absence of imminent talent releases, there are anticipations of cuts in the near future, specifically around the completion of the WWE-UFC merger, projected to take place in the middle to late September.
