Chad Gable seems to be fed up with his current position in WWE and wants to leave the company for good.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio, Chad Gable leaving the company is something that has been talked about already. However, leaving WWE might not be the best option for him due to not being paid as much money elsewhere or being offered a contract even.
“It’s been talked about, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. But it has been talked about, and he has definitely had friends tell him the same thing,” Meltzer said. I know it’s been one of those things that it’s been under consideration, but I don’t think he’s going anywhere. I don’t know that. Just one of those things. Not everyone’s gonna get an offer from AEW and that would really be the only place to go, and he’s making a lot of money in WWE, and he’s not gonna make that in IMPACT or anywhere else
WWE have released Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett, and Buddy Murphy. The reason cited was part of budget cuts, and Strowman was being paid $1.2 million per year according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The former WWE Universal Champion signed a new contract in October 2019, so the budget cut regarding Strowman is the WWE’s biggest saving financially from all of the talent cuts in the last year plus during the pandemic.
