Chile, this is giving me anxiety. I still have PTSD from when WWE released Jazz, Gail, Nidia, and a bunch of others around the same time.

Omg, seriously! I remember genuinely being SO upset on that day. I don't remember if it was the same year but I believe they released Joy, Miss Jackie and Dawn Marie on the same day back then and I was very upset about that too.

This is really crazy. They’re just rolling out names like they’re reading a shopping list. If these Superstars are supposedly the least paid, they can’t be taking that big of a hit to continue to pay these individuals. I don’t really understand the business and financial intricacies, but I don’t think this is a first-resort worthy solution.

I was honestly expecting Aliyah, but they say the nxt talent don’t make anything.

While I do feel that certain names will definitely return down the line once this blows over, this is still quite the fucked up situation. Just goes to show that wrestlers are no different than regular folks whose jobs were deemed essential but because their capitalist company bosses, were still fired or laid off.

It's probably going to go all day. They haven't even gotten to NXT yet.

NOOOOO not Ryder. :sad: He lasted so long, I thought he was going to be gone so many times of the year. His #stillhere hash tag is canceled.

They released fucking Mike Chioda! That man has been there 20+ years... I just can't.

Primo and Epico are gone as well. And Rowen.

Maria confirmed gone with Mike.

Yeah this does seem a bit heavy-handed. Surely there are so many other cuts that they can do before getting to on-screen talent. 

It seems like an excuse. Surely the broadcasting from the PC has made them realize how unnecessary having such a huge pool of workers sitting in the back and at home was. It’s sad that this is what it’s going to take for a lot of these people to see that the company doesn’t give a damn.

Like them or not, moments like these make everyone realize how important is to have companies like AEW, Impact, ROH, MLW, NJPW... WWE may be the main goal, but at the end of the day this is about making a living out of your passion. Hopefully, these companies can give everyone the chance to continue living her dream even if it's for less money.

By the way, I am particularly surprised with them releasing Zack. I assumed he was one of those who would always work for WWE in any capacity.
