WWE has released important names such as Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett and Buddy Murphy. The reason cited was part of a budget cut, and according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Straumann was paid $ 1.2 million a year. The former WWE Universal Championship signed a new contract in October 2019, so budget cuts on Straumann are WWE’s biggest financial savings from all talent cuts between last year and the pandemic. Braun Strowman was also fired by WWE for a very surprising reason.

It was just the beginning, as WWE has released several superstars over the past few months. Their latest releases included Keith Lee, Karrion Kross, Ember Moon, Mia Yim, Near Jacks and more.
According to the latest wrestling observer radio, Dave Meltzer, WWE has been struggling to sell tickets, especially due to the absence of champion Brock Lesnar last night, resulting in poor WWE performance these days.

They had fewer people than AEW had for Raleigh for the Wednesday and Friday shows. But WWE … it looked good. They go there with 4,000 people in the building and … they know how to set it up and everything everywhere … it looked good on TV. It was dark but nothing. “
