The thing is that they even said they have 500 million dollar on the side and the tv contracts give them a lot of additional money no matter what.
They bought everybody they could get their hands on just so that the AEW or Indy leagues cant get people, now they threw them away because they know that currently nobody is hiring because nobody can hold shows.
And worst of all is this constant bull**** about them saying the words "family" the wwe is family and all that...but fire people during a pandemic, people they had no problem paying before.

They could have kept those people the next 6-8 months easily until things get better.
The most frustrating thing about this development is that reportedly this is only saving them 4M $. I'm saying only because that's the exact same amount they paid for Goldberg to return for the Saudi event in February and Wrestlemania. They fired all those wrestlers (and also half of their staff working in their offices whose names and numbers we don't even know) just for this pathetic amount.

What's even more ridiculous is that somebody like Lars Sullivan who was called out for being a racist and homophobic POS still gets paychecks because they won't fire injured people, or Jerry Lawler, who just last week said Akira Tozawa did a "Japanese ramen noodle moonsault" live on TV that had to be edited out later, still has a job, but they gladly released a pregnant Maria Kanellis and her husband. I honestly hope she sues them, because that's just beyond disgusting.
My signature was removed because it was vulgar. Now I can't choose my own till March 2014. If I edit this one I will be suspended till March 2014.
