That’s a good reason…I think. One of the bigger stories this year has been WWE releasing various names both from the main roster as well as NXT. This was the case last year as well and every time, more than one interesting name has come up. That is true with the most recent edition as well, and now we know a bit more about one of the bigger names being let go.
In an interview with Sport1 (translation courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com), recently released NXT star Alexander Wolfe revealed that he was not fired, but rather that WWE told him his contract was not being renewed. Wolfe was also told that the decision was made due to the Coronavirus causing restrictions on events and budget cuts being made as a result. In response (not to WWE), Wolfe said that WWE makes so much money that they should not have to fire anyone, but he accepted it. Wolfe’s current contract expires on June 15 and he will be a free agent after.
Wolfe did have a nice run in WWE. Check out his time with the company:
Opinion: It is nice to see someone reacting like Wolfe and thankfully he seems to be in a pretty good place despite his time with the company coming to an end. Maybe not flat out being fired helped, but Wolfe will likely be able to get a spot in another promotion without much trouble. He is a talented wrestler, but he might have reached his ceiling in WWE prior to the news.
What do you think of Wolfe? Where will he wrestle next? Let us know in the comments below.
