WWE released Mickie James because of budget cuts

The company released James on April 15th, 2021. Apparently, the reason WWE released her was because of budget cuts, but the company reported profits.

Therefore, several in the wrestling industry questioned the releases. Nobody was sure why the company was releasing talent if it was making profits, especially individuals like Mickie James, who had contributed significantly to move the women’s industry forward.

Nick Khan revealed WWE signed new talent

During the interview, Khan revealed that WWE’s several authorities take part in the decision of releasing superstars. The reason the releases happen is that the company does not have a path forward with the former superstars.

However, lately the company had several individuals trying out for WWE, and the company signed several young talents from that event.

Now, Nick Khan clarified that the release of former Superstars and signing of new talent have no connection.

WWE will face a backlash from the industry for releasing the Superstars for a good while in the future. One of the reasons the company claimed to be cutting superstars was budget cuts. Now, at the same time, top executives such as Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, and others have been making profits.

In such a case, it seems unreasonable to cut superstars from their contract. Nevertheless, WWE has stood by its decision and not reversed any of the releases, at least not on the matter of main roster releases.
