In the wake of Vince McMahon and WWE's Wednesday announcement that the company is making changes to financially navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic, the company announced the release of several in-ring talents.

This post will be updated as more releases are announced.

Drake Maverick (James Curtin)
Curt Hawkins (Brian Myers)
Karl Anderson (Chad Allegra) and Luke Gallows (Andrew Hankinson)
EC3 (Michael Hutter)
Lio Rush (Lionel Green)
Eric Young (Jeremy Fritz)
Heath Slater (Heath Miller)
Aiden English (Matthew Rehwoldt)
Kurt Angle

Maverick had been announced as one of the eight entrants for NXT's interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament. The tournament is set to begin on tonight's episode of NXT, though WWE hasn't announced which matches will be taking place.

Angle, who has been working in a behind-the-scenes role, was included in the list of releases announced by WWE. English has been working as a commentator for 205 Live.

PWInsider reported that producers Billy Kidman, Mike Rotunda, Dave Finlay, Pat Buck, Shawn Daivari, Scott Armstrong, Sarah Stock, Shane Helms, and Lance Storm have either been furloughed or are gone from WWE.

Sarah Logan and Mike Chioda too. I can't remember WWE ever not having Chioda employed.

What a bunch of fuckin' absolute shitasses. Won't stop shows, but release everyone not being used EVEN THOUGH they consistently pay people they don't use and have been for decades just because they pay to keep them contracted, even people that just aren't on television. These guys all suddenly have no room when it comes to finances in WWE now.

Won't stop shows-but post messages about pro-isolation and love.

More reasons to just continuously not watch any wrestling at all for this moment.
When they come, they'll come at what you love.

Not to mention...THIS is the real end to 6 months of "AWH SHIT DAMN MOTHA FUCKER...WHAT'S IN THE GOT DANG FUCKIN ' ERICK ROWAN CAGE MAN?"

A fake spider...only to be released after not being used prominently in a proactive way some time later.

motherfuckers have $500 million cash reserves and TV deals, they could EASILY get through this. But alas, next week is the investor's call.

They're just trying to play up smart business -

Sure-There's relatively no income and revenue right now...but it doesn't matter because it's like they can't afford it otherwise. This isn't early ROH/CZW or TNA...being...imagine brand new independents that theoretically just got started in the same situation. That isn't even in the same universe of the case here.

Do they REALLY expect anyone to believe they HAVE TO clean fuckin house now?

Damn. Post Wrestlemania chopping block is HARSH this year.

Gallows and Anderson will be just fine, Japan or AEW.

Rowan can go and join the Dark Order in AEW

EC3 would be a good investment for AEW too.
Have A Nice Day!

Yeah-if you're not absolutely on top unexpendable you're out. Who knows how many of these guys will/be able to come back in the future "at a better financial standpoint", but I'd say Rusev is possible.

yeah, it's gotta be hard for some of these guys, especially the produces, to consider getting another job, or wait and see if WWE brings them back once it's possible
