As seen on WWE Programming this week, 5 female NXT Stars made their surprise debut on the main roster along with the much-awaited return of Paige.
While the addition of these 6 women is expected to make the Women’s division more interesting, it appears that it’s might also be concerning for some stars.
In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote that the arrival of these new stars has left a lot of margin talents nervous because it could result in some of them being released from the roster:
“With six new women characters all starting at once, that has left a lot of marginal talent nervous about spots because when there are a lot of additions there are likely some subtractions coming.”
While this isn’t a clear indication that some more WWE releases similar to the recent release of Emma are coming soon, it’s mentionable that the company is still in the budget cut mode.
Considering the fact that currently there are a number of female competitors who are barely used or not used at all, it shouldn’t be a big surprise if WWE parts ways with several more female talents in near future.
