WWE’s Worst Wednesday: Massive cuts across the board in the middle of a pandemic and recession.
About The Sports Courier Podcast Episode 54: In one of the most somber episodes we’ve ever recorded, TSC News editor Fred Richani discusses the massive layoffs by WWE including the releases of Kurt Angle, Mike Chioda, Shane Helms, Lance Storm, Erick Rowan, Sarah Logan, Sarah Stock, Mike Rotunda (aka IRS, Bray Wyatt’s father), Scott Armstrong, Drake Maverick, Eric Young, EC3, Luke Gallows, Shawn Daivari, Karl Anderson, Lio Rush, Curt Hawkins, Primo Colon, Epico Colon, Heath Slater, Mike Kanellis, Maria Kanellis, Billy Kidman, Zack Ryder, No Way Jose, and Pat Buck.
Note: WWE just donated $18.5 million to Trump reelection campaign and by all accounts, would have maintained profitability without these cuts.
Note #2 – 7/18/20: Maverick has been re-signed by WWE and Pat Buck is back as producer.
