WWE News: Update On Reasons For This Weeks Talent Releases

As you could imagine, there are a lot of people in shock at some of the names that were released today by WWE.

Braun Strowman and Lana signed new contracts last year for a lot of money and Aleister Black just started a feud with Big E on Friday Night SmackDown and Ruby Riott was on SmackDown last week. Murphy’s release doesn’t come as quite a shock since he hasn’t been used much after they dropped his angle with the Mysterio family.

Andrew Zarian from the Mat Men podcast reports that some of the names released are people who were looking to get let go. Zarian noted that WWE has been taking a very different approach when it comes to this. In other words, they are no longer looking to lock up certain people who may end up in AEW. Daniel Bryan seems to be the exception to that rule, at least as of now.

The news coming out today is only fueling online speculation that Vince McMahon may be getting ready to sell the company and offloading some big money contracts would be what a company would do before selling.

There are said to be more names to be released soon.
