Regarding the releases, John Laurinaitis (Head of Talent Relations in WWE) sent a company-wide email to announce that 18 wrestlers have been released due to budget cuts.

Most of the NXT wrestlers that got released have a 30-day non-compete clause, while the main roster wrestlers have a 90-day non-compete clause.

Due to these releases, tomorrow’s training classes at the WWE Performance Center have been canceled.
