WWE has come to terms on the release of Curtis Axel. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

After the long list of releases that shook the wrestling business and fandom, WWE seem to still be in quest of financial cutbacks. Curtis Axel today was officially released by the company. The son of WWE Hall of Famer Mr Perfect Curt Hennig was a veteran of the company as he signed his contract in 2008, after his father’s induction into the Hall of Fame. The former Tag Team and Intercontinental Champion had struggled to make a name for himself in WWE.

Earlier this week, @Wrestlevotes reported that WWE officials were opened to releasing just about anyone who wants to be released at this point. We don’t know as of now if Axel’s release is the first of another round of budget cuts brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak or a granted release request for the wrestler.

Also, WWE has reportedly released former UFC champion, Cain Velasquez. He was under a multi-year deal with WWE. There’s no official word yet on why WWE parted ways with Velasquez, but apparently he was released due to the recent coronavirus-related budget cuts.

WWE Hall of Famer and NXT talent scout Gerald Brisco confirmed a few days ago he was recently furloughed as a part of the WWE cuts brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
