Yeah it’s still going. Wednesday was a bad day for WWE, with over three dozen people either being released or furloughed from the company. That is not something you see from them very often, if ever, and the situation left several questions. One such question was whether or not WWE was done letting people go, and it turns out that they weren’t finished quite yet.

While most of the people let go were main roster wrestlers, there were other people from other lines of work who lost their jobs as well. Some of these names were from down in NXT, which has a rather big lineup of its own. In addition to the people you see on television, there is also the Florida live event circuit. NXT took a beating of its on Friday, with several more releases taking place.

Friday saw five more NXT releases on Friday, including the following names according to

Taynara Conti
Tino Sabbatelli
Cezar Bononi
Mars Wang

Conti and Sabbatelli had appeared the most of the four, with both of them appearing somewhat regularly on NXT TV. However, Sabbatelli missed most of 2019 due to an injury, only returning to the ring in January. In addition, Nick Ogarelli has announced his own release via Twitter. Ogarelli never wrestled on NXT television but being a regular on the NXT Florida circuit.

You may have seen some of these people before. Check out some of their highlights:

Opinion: You never can tell how many more of these there will be but the main roster cuts seem to have stopped for now. These releases came as quite the shock and while I can understand them from a business perspective, it is quite a bit to take when you have WWE bragging about how much money they have and seeing all of the successful things that they have been doing over the last few months and years.

Which of these names is the biggest loss? Who else could you see getting cut? Let us know in the comments below.
