WWE releases expected ‘soon and regularly’

On today’s Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Andrew Zarian confirmed Dave Meltzer’s reports from last week about the most frequently occurring releases in WWE.

Meltzer said last week that NXT wrestlers will be evaluated after 90 days and, if they haven’t improved, will be fired to make room for new signings. There will be some exceptions, but the general idea is that they want to keep updating the list until they find people that they think may be on the main list.

“This is a common thing,” Zarian said. “I expect more releases soon, at the earliest. I don’t know the exact time frame, but they told me it’s not like that, there should be something else.”

WWE usually releases people at the time of their investor conference calls. No one knows who’s on the chopping block, but presumably, people barely used on TV are in the bubble.

UPDATE: Zarian has issued a clarification:

I want to clarify a conversation we had on air today regarding more releases. What they told me: “Talent is constantly evaluated in progress. Expect more releases soon and regularly” (Regarding development talent) I made a mistake saying “very soon”
