It's been stated already this week that the recent cuts were mostly people that were hired by Triple H and he is no longer running things backstage. Hunter hasn't been seen backstage since his cardiac event in September. He made his first TV appearance this week on NBC news while talking about the company's NIL program so it appears that he still has some sort of role with the college recruiting.
Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that talent and others in the system are depressed and many are wondering about the future of the brand.
William Regal's firing hit many people hard and that was evident by how many people spoke highly of him on social media as he was responsible for so many independent wrestlers getting a look from the company. Meltzer added that some of the biggest names in the business to this day still go to Real for advice on wrestling and career decisions.
It was also noted that WWE is no longer scouting the independents and that's the likely reason why he was let go but it's baffling that the company could not find something else for him to do.
Here is WWE's statement on the recent cuts: "With the continued evolution of NXT 2.0, we’ve decided to part ways with some of the staff based in our Performance Center. We thank them for their many contributions throughout the years and wish them the best."
