WWE Releases Another Round of Wrestlers in Surprising Move

The WWE has released multiple wrestlers from their contracts, most of whom were part of their NXT or Cruiserweight brands. News has broken that Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, the team of Chase Parker and Matt Martel (also known as Ever-Rise), Fandango, Tyler Breeze, and August Grey have all been released from the WWE. Several of the wrestlers confirmed their releases on social media earlier this afternoon. Nese and Fandago are both former champions – Nese was a former Cruiserweight Champion and Breeze and Fandango were an NXT Tag Team Championship team. Breeze was also heavily involved with the WWE’s UpUpDownDown video game content.

The cuts seemed to come without warning – Breeze was just announced as part of a G4/D&D collaboration airing next month on Peacock, while Ever-Rise just had their viral “pre-pre-show” moved to the WWE Network. Daivari was also scheduled to wrestle a match on 205 Live this evening.
