WWE has released the following names:
- Trey Baxter
- Katrina Cortez
- Jeet Rama
- Gran Metalik
Those names were first reported by Sean Ross Sapp. We can confirm that Jessi Kamea has also been released.
As noted earlier, there were more names released, including Karrion Kross and Scarlett. These releases are part of WWE's budget cuts. In some cases, the releases were due to WWE's edict to focus on younger talent. The main goal of NXT 2.0 is to create stars for tomorrow that could someday headline WrestleMania.
