Here are some additional backstage news and notes regarding the WWE releases that were announced on Thursday, April 15th:
– Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com confirmed that all of the released talent from Thursday have the standard 90-day non-compete clause and will still be paid through July 14th.
– Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com speculated on what happened with Joe, “My gut is this was a decision by the company to cut some of their finances from the board before Quarter 1 of 2021 is publicly released on 4/22 and Joe was one of those trapped in the crossfire.”
– Bo Dallas could be moving away from wrestling as Meltzer noted that Dallas has been working in real estate in preparation for life after WWE.
– On Friday morning, Chelsea Green issued follow-up comments regarding her release from WWE:
I received so many amazing words yesterday. It fuelled my fire to wake up this morning & get to work♥️ I’ve got an amazing support system here in the US and @TheMattCardona in my corner, so I’m a lucky girl.
Now, LETS GET THIS PODCAST GOING! 😈 Lord knows I thrive at talking!!
