The wrestling community has heavily criticized McMahon and the WWE management for the mass firings which have shown no signs of stopping. The company has released numerous superstars and backstage entities over this period.

WWE released many superstars on ‘Black Wednesday’ last year citing these to be part of their ‘budget cuts’. Amongst those superstars was Mike Bennett who is now wrestling for the ‘Ring of Honor’ promotion.

Bennett wrote, “However to deny that Vince is a greedy evil man, is to live in denial. You can enjoy the WWE product and realize that Vince has become bad for wrestling. The fish rots at the head and for the past 40 years Vince has been at the top.

“He fired mass amounts of people during the worst health crisis in 100 years. All to save a few million dollars, when his company was set to make record profits. Many people with families and children lost their jobs that day, so Vince could become slightly more rich. To deny this fact is to live in delusion. He’s destroyed more lives than he’s helped.” 

WWE released Bennett and his wife, Maria Kanellis-Bennett in April 2020, because of ‘budget cuts’. Bennett is lucky that he is doing well in the Indy circuit but he’s concerned about those individuals who are still unemployed.

Clearly, Vince McMahon made WWE the flagship entity of the pro-wrestling business but these last couple of years have been hard for the company, not just the released stars. The company is not dropping numbers and boring the crowd with the same old rematches.
