WWE continues with the roundup of layoffs that has led the company to lose many talents and also many insiders, who according to the management, have been fired for budget cuts. Just two days ago we gave you the news of the release of one of the biggest superstars in recent years in WWE, Bray Wyatt, who had made us dream with The Fiend.
We also let you know in the previous days that the layoffs would continue. As reported by the well-known podcast of the Fightful Select, WWE would now have targeted several other areas in which to go to cut, such as: the marketing department, the shop area, customer service and several other fields dedicated to the final customer of the federation.
As reported by the well-known American sites Fightful Select and Wrestling INC, Ric Flair has moved away from the WWE which has decided to let go of one of its greatest champions in history. WWE has not yet officially announced the release, but these two sites have learned anyway of the interruption of the relationship between the athlete and the McMahon family.
Apparently it was the Nature Boy who asked to be dismissed for creative differences. Many already take his appearance in AEW for granted, with the man who certainly does not want to give up taking money, especially in an environment that could give him more creative control.
We remind you that in AEW there is also currently Andrade El Idolo who is the boyfriend of his daughter Charlotte Flair, who for now seems to be willing to continue his path in WWE, which created and launched it. Obviously, however, the fans have also begun to speculate on a possible separation of Charlotte, that she would surely fall on her feet, most likely ending up in AEW with Andrade, but this is just chat from the living room.
Charlotte in the month of May had indulged in some statements about her father: "Now I'm Charlotte Flair, I'm no longer just Ric's daughter. That's why I didn't want to be on TV with my father. I don't want anyone to think that I'm a selfish person, anyone who would like to share the scene with their father."
Will Brock Lesnar fight in AEW?
In recent days, AEW, also named All Elite Wrestling, has been in the news for the latest rumors that have approached two former WWE stars such as CM Punk and even Daniel Bryan to the company of Tony Khan.
In the last few hours the rumors have increased and have also seen a rumor that would be incredible: the second most important wrestling company in the world would also be thinking of The Beast Incarnate, one of the most important stars of the WWE of the last twenty years, none other than Brock Lesnar.
Some rumors even say that the wrestler has already signed a contract. It all started when someone sent a message to colleagues from Wrestling Observer Newsletter stating that a historical and very important source in wrestling would tell them that Brock Lesnar had signed a deal with a company outside WWE.
Rumors have increased and it has been argued that this company was indeed the AEW. During the last episode of the Mat Men podcast, colleague Andrew Zarian took stock of the actual situation of The Beast. Here are his words: "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Brock Lesnar did not sign with AEW.
They may have spoken occasionally, but never anything serious. That's all I know and I can tell you what they told me. I also spoke to Dave Meltzer and he also confirmed that it is not true, Brock Lesnar has not signed with All Elite Wrestling."
Brock Lesnar has been absent from WWE rings and wrestling in general since last year when he was defeated at Wrestlemania 36. Latest rumors say that Vince McMahon's company is very interested in the wrestler's return and Zarian continued: "Brock hasn't signed with WWE yet.
I know WWE wants him and honestly if I'm WWE I think: How do you let go. one like him. I think it would be stupid and in fact the fact that WWE doesn't sink the blow for his return has made some wrestling fans think that WWE wants to sell.
Usually when someone wants to sell he has to save money as possible but I think you must also sell with the maximum of your earnings."
