WWE releases 18 Wrestlers

It's being reported that 18 superstars were let go from WWE on 11/5.
The following names are:

-Keith Lee
-Karrion Kross
-Nia Jax
-Ember Moon
-Scarlett Bordeaux
-Franky Monet
-Mia Yim
-Gran Metalik
-Oney Lorcan
-Lince Dorado
-Harry Smith

I will update the list once more info comes in. I can understand wrestlers being released last year because of covid and everything being shut down, but this is a lot of people. The last round of cuts included Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Ruby Riott and Aleister Black.

It's not clear as to why the releases happened, but some rumors include vaccine refusal, and just budget cuts.

Companies with 100 or more employees must be fully vaccinated by January 4 or undergo weekly testing. Workers will get paid time off for the vaccine and get paid if they suffer side effects. Employers will not have to pay for it.
