It’s important to note that, as of the time of writing, no full-time NXT talents have been released. However, there are rumors circulating in the wrestling community that NXT might see some cuts later in the day.

These recent releases follow WWE’s merger with UFC under the TKO Group Holdings banner, which was finalized on September 12th. The rumors of significant roster cuts emerged after this business move, and they became a reality when WWE released over 100 office employees on September 15th.

In another major announcement, WWE revealed that Friday Night SmackDown would move to the USA Network as its new broadcasting home starting in October 2024. This five-year deal with NBCUniversal is reportedly valued at a staggering $1.4 billion.

The wrestling world is familiar with such releases, and they always evoke a mix of emotions. While some fans are saddened to see their favorite superstars depart, others are optimistic that these talents will find success elsewhere, possibly in rival promotions.

Only time will unveil the destinations and career paths these superstars will pursue post-WWE.
