More WWE releases expected soon

The list of wrestlers released by WWE is expected to grow and more names could be on their way out very soon.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez went over the names released on Friday from WWE NXT and Meltzer explained why each person was let go. It boiled down to people either being considered too old or too small. There will be exceptions but for the most part, the plan is to go back to what NXT was supposed to be many years ago.

Alvarez concluded the conversation on WOR by saying, “hopefully that’s it.” Meltzer responded by saying, “I doubt it that’s it. Everyone is kind of talking like that’s not gonna be it.”

As previously noted, the decision to release so many WWE NXT wrestlers on Friday was made by Vince McMahon and this was not something done by Triple H and Shawn Michaels. The feeling from McMahon is that they have lost the war to AEW Dynamite and they need to go back to what they were doing several years ago before the goal became to compete with the independent scene/ROH.

As you can see in tweets posted by Denise Salcedo, there has been a major housecleaning in WWE this year and they are not done yet.
