I guess we shouldn't be surprised but WWE has cut a ton of talent today...the list keeps updating constantly. Here's the list so far...

  • Kurt Angle
  • Drake Maverick
  • Curt Hawkins
  • Karl Anderson
  • Luke Gallows
  • Heath Slater
  • Eric Young
  • Rowan
  • Sarah Logan
  • Mike Chioda
  • Mike Kanellis
  • Maria Kanellis
  • EC3
  • Aiden English
  • Lio Rush
  • Primo
  • Epico
  • Zack Ryder
  • No Way Jose
Some producers were furloughed as well like Storm, Helms Finlay etc

Some pretty big names, no one bigger than Rusev. I imagine he won’t be a free agent long. He will likely end up in AEW. I imagine EC3 will also land there and get used properly.

Some pretty sad tweets from some of the people that were released yesterday.

Rusev seemed happy to be let go...he's been in a contact dispute anyway.

I'm sure AEW will jump to sign some of these guys whenever the pandemic goes away. Gallows and Anderson seem a good fit to go back to Japan.
