2 Comments on WWE releases Keith Lee, Karrion Kross, Nia Jax, and others in a sizable talent reduction

  1. Now that WWE is reporting record revenues I guess Vince McMahon decided there is no need to park talent anymore. That parked talent eats into his dividends.

  2. Releasing Nia Jac us shocking enough, but Ember Moon is a true surprise. I guess when talent goes into that “suddenly I can’t win” mode, it’s just a matter of time before they are gone. I have no doubt that Ember Moon and Keith Lee (and perhaps Karrion Kross) will reappear on AEW in the new year. But all four of these prominent releases are victims of storylines gone wrong. They all went from “Can’t Miss Champions” to “Can’t Win Former Champions” to released. I hope they are treated better at their next destinations. I doubt that any of them deserved this treatment. Thank you.
