Apparently, in a big change of plans for the non televised side of WWE, Vince McMahon has decided not to send nearly as much talent to house shows in the coming months because they have been drawing poorly as of late. Because of that, a major cost cutting change has started. Those who weren’t going to be sent on the road were cut.
While this will effect some wrestlers payoffs that they would normally get for house show work, it will also save them money on transportation and other expenses (hotel, food, etc etc).
While the cuts have all been made (12 of them), two have yet to be made public by WWE. We hope to have those shortly.
