WWE Planning To Announce Several NXT Releases Next Month, More On Major Budget Cuts

PWMania.com reported that F4Wonline.com has confirmed a report that WWE is looking at making more budget cuts in the near future. NXT is the next target of these cost-cutting measures, SEScoops.com reports.

A WWE developmental source noted that the budget for NXT has already been cut in terms of production and post-production. WWE officials will be evaluating the NXT talent roster soon with a number of releases expected to be announced in July.

WWE is reportedly “staggering” the cuts so they appear to be fiscally responsible to Wall Street and so they don’t set off major internal panic.

  • Paul Petit-Frere

    Well this sucks, hopefully no top NXT stars get cut

  • Bryan

    They’ll mess around and do something stupid like release slate randall. Which i don’t mind. That leaves more talent for GFW to scoop up, saying that GFW will actually be worth it. Which i doubt

    • Arvind

      They’ll probably release Justin Gabriel, JoJo, Angelo, Marcus Louis and all those guys they don’t use. I think the most surprising release could be Scott Dawson or LeFort. Crossing my fingers that they release Mojo though.

      • Tyrone Dudley

        They’re not cutting Mojo. They love Mojo, even if we don’t.

    I swear if they release Mojo Rawley, Bayley, Colin Cassady or Alexa Bliss I’ll get shocked. Release Sasha Banks & Lefort.

  • Necro

    This may be because of the talent they’re bringing in the future anyway, Prince Devitt, Kevin Steen….whoever else they want, so it’s not a huge shock. Hoping Slate Randall gets the boot.

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    Keep Enzo Amore and Collin Cassidy.

    Get rid of Mojo Rawley and those ‘divas’/barbie models.

  • WWE RaZaR

    Keep Sami Zayn and Corey Graves and I will be happy
