- After last week’s round of WWE developmental releases, it’s expected that more releases will be announced before the new WWE Performance Center opens on July 1st. There also may be some other developmental employees shifted around – some sent to WWE headquarters and some just released.
Word also is that WWE will be getting rid of a lot of talents who have been in their developmental system for a while without really doing anything in NXT or getting called to the main roster. Derrick Bateman’s release was a perfect example of that.
Out of the recent releases, the Audrey Marie and Briley Pierce cuts were the biggest shockers within WWE.
