The WWE have released over 50 wrestlers this year. Some of them have been major stars such as Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt or stars that were given regular tv time such as the IIconics and Lana among many others in the name of budget cuts.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley recently spoke with TV Insider, where he advised the released superstars not to burn their bridges with the WWE following their exit from the company. He gave his own example to show how things could change for them in the future.

“I just tell the guys if you do get that call, and they say your contact expired, or they have to let you go, the worst thing you can do is be one of those people who goes online bad-mouthing. It looks really sad. A lot of these guys wouldn’t even be the guys they were without WWE. They made a name for themselves. They can just look back at the money they received from WWE up to this point. Then you’re here telling this company you hate them, but you have a brand new house, swimming pool in the back, kids are taken care of with a lot of money in the bank.”
“When I first left, I kept my head down. I kept grinding and knew I was going to find another option to get in again. I never burned any bridges, I came back and became a world champion. Things change all the time. And if it’s not your time, it’s not your time. You just keep grinding because there is a lot of money to be made in the wrestling business. I want to see everyone succeed.”
The Almighty also addressed that mood backstage stating that everything was running smoothly and that the WWE was still the flagship of the wrestling industry.
“I think the feeling is good. We get tested with so many things. Everyone will say, ‘This is it. This is the downfall of WWE.’ It’s never going to be. We have so much talent in WWE. WWE is never going to be beaten or contested. It’s always going to be the flagship of professional wrestling. That’s never going to change.”
