Backstage News on Contracts Expiring

PWInsider.com is reporting that there is a belief that WWE are letting contracts expire, instead of announcing their release, as a way to downplay the controversy and negative feelings people have when leaving WWE. 

Instead of the company announcing that they have released superstars, they are letting the contracts expire and the wrestlers announce it themselves.
