WWE released the following 5 wrestlers on Friday:

– Jinder Mahal

– Xia Li

– Xyon Quinn

– Veer Mahaan

– Sanga

According to Fightful Select, WWE executives cited a variety of reasons for the releases. One key factor was the lack of television appearances, attributed to creative challenges in finding suitable storylines for the affected talent.

Additionally, considerations such as the talent’s upward trajectory and tenure within the company were also taken into account.

Sanga posted a video addressing his WWE release. Here’s what he said (translated to English):

“There is a little pain in my heart. When it comes to viewership, you want viewership from our country India. Viewership on Facebook is needed from India. Viewership on YouTube is needed from India. Viewership on TV is needed from India.

But when it comes to talent of India, they are not taking you forward. Whatever you are thinking, it is okay, creatives have their own way of working, but you should understand that we are saddened by the fact that our 1.4 billion people, like you, people like us, they want that their country India should have athletes who work at the international level, but you are not ready to give opportunities.”

In a noticeable shift from previous practices, WWE has adjusted its approach to talent releases, signaling a departure from the methods employed during the Vince McMahon era.

Traditionally, wrestlers received brief, matter-of-fact calls from figures like John Laurinaitis or Mark Carrano, informing them of their release due to budgetary constraints. Shortly thereafter, the news would be disseminated across WWE’s official platforms, including WWE.com and social media channels.

However, the recent wave of talent releases saw a departure from this protocol. According to reports from PWInsider, the manner in which these calls were conducted differed significantly. Described as “less curt” and characterized by a tone of apology and respect, these conversations marked a departure from the previous norm.
