WWE Bloody Wednesday Bleeds Into Second Week With Wave 7 Seeing More NXT Departures! WWE Exits Surpass 60 Since Christmas 2019!

Six more releases making the rounds from the NXT brand.

* Hussain Aldagal
* Faisal Kurdi
* Mohamed Fahim
* Marcos Gomes
* Edgar Lopez
* Rocky / Yifeng

For 2020, so far, there have been several waves of WWE exits.

    • Wave one included 16 WWE superstars.
    • Wave two saw that number grow to 22.
    • Wave three grew to 25 releases.
    • Wave four added 12 more WWE departures.
    • Wave five saw 7 more departures.
    • Wave six saw 6 more departures.
    • Wave seven saw another 6 exits. (Per the above.)
    • Wave eight had 3 more departures for a total of 64 exits since Christmastime 2019. (Per an update.)

It’s been quite a bloodletting this year for WWE.

Despite being an essential service, a decision that appears to some to be a political quid pro quo, which a WWE expects these departures, a mix of releases and furloughs, will save WWE $48 million annually. The number of head office staff released or furloughed is unknown at this time.

In addition, Vince McMahon’s XFL reboot has filed for bankruptcy; WWE had a small stake in that venture.
