WWE had begun laying off employees in the office this past week, leading to the worrying thought of it’s only a matter of time before on screen talent are given their walking papers.
This morning we saw the likes of Rick Boogs, Elias, Mustafa Ali and Australian Emma released from their contracts. Now we know that Shelton Benjamin and Dolph Ziggler, two veterans of the WWE, are also departing from the company.
Other names, a mix of talent from the main roster and developmental include Dana Brooke, Shanky, Quincy Elliot, Mace, Mansoor and Dabba-Kato.
Reports were made mostly by Fightful Select and PWInsider, whereas several individuals have made the announcement public on their social media.
