In addition to the six names initially released by WWE.com this morning, more names are coming out who will no longer be under contract to the Stamford, Connecticut-based sports entertainment giant.
Among those are two-thirds of the popular jobber faction 3MB (or 57% of 3.5MB, if you count Hornswoggle), as PWInsider.com is reporting that Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal have also been given their walking papers.
It's quite the fall for both men. McIntyre was famously christened "The Chosen One" by none other than Vince McMahon on Smackdown, before a domestic violence incident with his then wife Taryn Terrell (Tiffany in WWE) lead to her release and his reduced profile within WWE stories.
Mahal was once seen as key to growing WWE presence in India and among Indian viewers in other markets.
Perhaps this means that super-jobber Heath Slater can follow in Wade Barrett's footsteps and be repackaged as his JBL & Cole Show character, Clem Layfield.
Also granted her release was Aksana. Many expected this move following her injuring Total Divas star Naomi in the run-up to WrestleMania. The former fitness model never seemed to progress much in the ring, and with NXT women being promoted at a steady clip, the company obviously decided to move on without her.
This brings the total to nine releases announced this morning. More on these names, and any new ones that come out, as they happen.
