Seems WWE wants to trim their roster down even more than before since the company is now open to granting releases to anyone who asks with some exceptions. Also trying to cut down even more costs despite them making a ton of money the past fiscal quarter compared to last year.

"Basically if a talent wants out, they can go," wrote WV.

Guess that's why Bryan requested to work with Gulak recently since he probably knew Gulak wasn't staying and let Gulak have an entertaining storyline on his way out.

That's probably more likely since Meltzer mentioned in this week's Observer Newsletter that WWE froze pay raises for their talent even if they were promised one before. Despite them making huge sums of money last fiscal quarter, they still are penny pinching when it comes to talent expenses using the coronavirus as the excuse.

According to the Observer, Gulak could end up back in WWE since talks between the two sides didn't completely end yet.

Add WWE's VP of Television to the growing list of people recently let go by the company.

First reported by PWInsider and later confirmed by Dave Meltzer, Mansury is no longer with the company as of last week after giving his notice several months ago. The reasons for his departure are unknown.

Why this move is significant is that Mansury was seen by some as the eventual replacement for Vince McMahon right hand man and executive VP Kevin Dunn. PWInsider noted that with Mansury and Kerwin Silfies' recent departures, Dunn and Marty Miller, also a WWE director, will be handling the broadcasts.

Another wave of cuts recently happened except this time it was more pay-based than released-based.

Also WWE's initial hope of bringing back those furloughed in July seem to be less certain now.

Smackdown's lead writer also got released but apparently for a separate reason and not as part of WWE's cutbacks for the coronavirus.

The company has already furloughed a great percentage of the company across every division as well as cut a number of talents, producers and third-parties who had worked for and with WWE. WWE has noted internally that they hoped those furloughed would return in July, but there is no word whether that timeline remains accurate.

The departure of Smackdown Lead Writer Chris DeJoseph, which we reported on last night, was unconnected to these cutbacks, PWInsider.com is told.

Many of the agent positions will be refilled once they begin touring again. Theyre losing unprecedented ammounts of revenue right now and if they want to survive they have to cut costs until they get the gate back

Considering they posted record revenues last fiscal quarter and are still well on pace to post record profits and revenues for this fiscal quarter and year, they didn't need to actually cut any talent or staff costs because of the coronavirus.

Even they admitted the vast bulk of the savings was due to them halting work on their new HQ.

Because their new tv deals are massive, it dwarfs whatever their other departments were making or not making and why they'd still set new all-time records for revenues and profits during the next few fiscal quarters even if they don't hold any more live events this year. If anything, they've been saving more money by scaling back and not holding live events than had they been holding them based on recent years trends.

According to Meltzer, something recently happened between Vince and former Smackdown lead writer Chris DeJoseph that lead to DeJoseph's sudden release last Friday.

Current rumor was DeJoseph was causing issues behind the scenes and got released due to his highly unprofessional behavior.

According to the Observer, agents/producers who were not furloughed got hit with around a 20% pay cut as part of WWE's newest cost cutting plans.

Refs also got hit with a similar 20% pay cut.

Meltzer also reported that WWE's talent are pretty much safe from getting hit with pay cuts since their contracts likely would be voided if WWE went that far with the cuts.

Him being considered for a possible match at SummerSlam and the next Saudi show probably wasn't going to happen even if there was no coronavirus going around considering those two shows take place during the NFL pre-season and season.

Seems the relationship between Gronk and WWE wasn't that friendly behind-the-scenes.

Apparently he had a lot of heat within WWE ever since Mania 36 and his initial hesitation to do his planned dive spot during the show.

Per the report, there was heat on Gronkowski after his hesitation to do his scheduled spot that put the WrestleMania filming two hours behind schedule. It was mentioned that one top name called Gronk “A F**kin’ clown who we are so much better off without.”

The incident at WrestleMania was originally broken by Fightful, which stated at the time that WWE wanted him to do a spot where he would jump off a platform onto a bunch of WWE stars.

It was reported that Gronk was “terrified” of the dive but Vince McMahon convinced him that it was safe, which took a significant amount of time to do.
