April 15 is a day that will live in infamy in the professional wrestling business, as it will be remembered for the massive cuts that WWE made.
WWE stars such as Kurt Angle, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Zack Ryder and many more were let go on Wednesday, but it sounds like we haven’t seen the last of the releases.
WrestleVotes reports that the number of people let go including staff and talents is expected to be in the hundreds before this is all said and done.
All I can say is wow at this point. The number of people, staff + talent, let go will be in the hundreds when it’s all set and done. Well into the hundreds. A dark day in WWE history.
