Here we go again. WWE has shaken up its roster like never before in recent years, letting well over a hundred names go from the company. It can make for some very tense moments as you do not know how long it might be before someone else is let go. That time seems to have come again, as WWE has released multiple people from the company on Friday afternoon.

According to Sean Ross Sapp, WWE has released ten people from their contracts today. All of the names are from NXT and include wrestlers who have been on TV recently, a manager, a referee, and some names who have who not appeared on television frequently. The released names include:

Dakota Kai
Malcolm Bivens
Persia Pirotta
Blair Baldwin (referee)
Sanjana George
Draco Anthony
Mila Milani
Raelyn Divine
Dexter Lumis

There is no word on if any more releases are expected soon, though this is reportedly all that will be let go today.

Opinion: I really can’t stand these days as they are such nerve wracking stretches. You never know who might be let go at a moment’s notice and that is a terrible feeling. I can’t imagine how much worse it is for everyone involved as some of these people were on television not long ago. Kai was a champion in NXT earlier this month and now she is on the market. That’s insane and hopefully no one else is let go soon.

What do you think of the releases? Who will go where? Let us know in the comments below.
