WWE Bloodbath 2022 Wave 1 Begins With Over 10 Exits Before End Of Year’s First Week!
This is a regular activity by WWE particularly during the pandemic; context from previous years:
The numbers are likely higher in both years due to corporate office exits that are not wholly publicized.
The 2022 exits so far focus on the transition from NXT to NXT 2.0 and totals fourteen.
- William Regal
- Brian James (Road Dogg)
- Samoa Joe
- Scott Armstrong
- Timothy Thatcher
- Danny Burch
- Hideki Suzuki (from Diamond Mine)
- Cathy Corino
- George Carroll
- Chris Guy
- Dave Kapoor
- Ryan Katz
- Gabriel Sapolsky (EVOLVE founder)
- Sarah Cummins (SVP)
The exits were confirmed by Fightful with WWE commenting on them by noting:
“With the continued evolution of NXT 2.0, we’ve decided to part ways with some of the staff based in our Performance Center. We thank them for their many contributions throughout the years and wish them the best.”
Another way of exits is expected around or after Wrestlemania as in previous years.
Wishing the first wave of WWE releases the best for the new year despite it’s poor start.
