The WWE Releases of

Last year’s WWE bloodletting of talent shocked wrestling fans everywhere. In total, 80 wrestlers were let go from the largest wrestling organization in the world. And that’s excluding backstage personnel and office workers, which is even crazier to think about! And just like the year before it, 2022 marked the end of the road for a number of top-tier WWE Superstars, trainers, those that work in creative, and more. So let’s get right into it and break down everyone that got released by Vince McMahon’s wrestling empire in 2022.

Note – this list will continually be updated throughout the year as soon as newly released WWE talents are announced.

1. William Regal (Released on January 5)


William Regal previously worked as NXT’s Director of Talent Development and Head of Global Recruiting, plus he was an important figure when it came to scouting unsigned talent for WWE. In his most onscreen recent run with the company, Regal played the role of NXT’s General Manager for an extended period of time before the debut of NXT 2.0.

2. “Road Dogg” Jesse James (Released on January 5)


WWE Hall of Famer “Road Dogg” Jesse James worked behind the scenes as a part of NXT by handling classes on in-ring promos and character development within the Performance Center. James also held previous roles as a producer for NXT and head writer for WWE SmackDown.

3. Chrisopher Guy aka “Ace Steel” (Released on January 5)

Cristopher Guy aka “Ace Steel” previously worked as a coach and match producer for the Performance Center. Indie wrestling historians will surely recognize Steel as the trainer/stablemate of AEW wrestlers CM Punk and Colt Cabana (any Second City Saints fans reading this right now?).

4. Dave Kapoor aka “Ranjin Singh” (Released on January 5)


The Great Khali’s former manager Dave Kapoor aka “Ranjin Singh” previously held the role of SVP of Creative for NXT. Several wrestling sites report that he moved to Florida the year prior in order to work for NXT full-time.

5. Ryan Katz (Released on January 5)

Twitter (@undergaro)

Ryan Katz of Wrestling Society X fame previously worked behind the scenes with NXT. His main duties entailed teaching promo classes after Dusty Rhodes’ passing (RIP) and helping NXT talent with their ongoing character development/vignettes.

6. Scott Armstrong (Released on January 5)


Scott Armstrong, who is “Road Dogg” Jesse James’ brother, helped referee and produce for NXT. It’s pretty wild to note that Armstrong was among those furloughed by WWE back in April 2020.

7. George Carroll (Released on January 5)


George Carroll, who’s previously worked with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and Major League Wrestling (MLW), worked with WWE as a writer and producer.

8. Timothy Thatcher (Released on January 5)


Timothy Thatcher once held the NXT Tag Team Championship alongside Matt Riddle during his stint with the developmental brand. The last time fans saw him, Thatcher succumbed to an attack from Ridge Holland that wrote him off of TV.

9. Danny Burch (Released on January 5)


Danny Burch is another former holder of the NXT Tag Team Championship. He held the titles with Oney Lorcan, who was also released by WWE in November of last year.

10. Hideki Suzuki (Released on January 5)


Hideki Suzuki is most known for his previous onscreen role as Hachiman alongside The Diamond Mine stable in NXT. He also worked as a Performance Center coach before his release.

11. Cathy Corino aka “Allison Danger” (Released on January 5)

Cathy Corino aka “Allison Danger” (who’s done past work in indie feds such as Ring of Honor and Shimmer) previously worked as a coach at the Performance Center. On an interesting note, Corino’s close friend within the industry (Lenny Leonard) provided some more backstory on how heartbreaking her release ended up being via Twitter:

“Here’s a thread about one of my best friends in the entire world..Its a long one.. sorry..

You dedicate 20 years of your life to pro wrestling. Endure physical and mental stress and injury but persevere until you are ultimately offered your dream job.

Come on down and coach in Orlando. You sign on the dotted line, pack your entire life into a truck and move from Vegas to Florida, uprooting your family, and your child from their friends and school to chase your dream.

3 months go by, no performance issues to speak of, by all accounts you’re fitting in well. You are asked to go in to help as they are shorthanded, and you get exposed to Covid… ruining your Christmas by being a good soldier and are forced to quarantine.

12. Gabe Sapolsky

Gabe Sapolsky previously handled his behind-the-scenes duties as a consultant for WWE. His previous roles in the industry include his time spent alongside Paul Heyman as his marketing/public relations protege in ECW, co-founding & booking Ring of Honor, launching Dragon Gate USA, and getting EVOLVE off the ground as a legit indie wrestling promotion.

13. Samoa Joe

Samoa Joe was last seen on NXT defeating Karrion Kross for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver 36. Sadly, he went down with an injury shortly after and was forced to vacate the title. Since that period of time, Joe worked alongside Triple H and William Regal within the role of talent development for NXT. It’s worth noting that Joe got released last year, but was rehired by HHH and brought into NXT soon after (Hunter was pretty unhappy with Joe’s treatment by the other powers that be within the company). This 2022 release marks the second time Joe’s been let go by WWE.

14. Brian Kendrick

Before Brian Kendrick requested his release from WWE, he primarily worked as a backstage producer for the NXT brand. During an angle where he was thrown down a flight of stairs by Harland, Brian was scheduled to wrestle him. But it was reported that Brian had requested to be let go from WWE around that time, which is why the match never took place.

Brian reportedly got his wish granted on February 1. Afterward, AEW put out a tweet promoting his match against Jon Moxley for the February 2 episode of Dynamite. But when several clips showing Brian’s controversial conspiracy theories started making the rounds, AEW president Tony Khan was forced to nix him from the show due to overwhelming fan backlash.

15. Shane McMahon (Released on February 2)

After the 2022 Royal Rumble came to a close, wrestling dirtsheet reports started circulating regarding Shane McMahon’s less-than-stellar behavior backstage as the match was mapped out. Due to his actions, it’s been said that Shane has been quietly let go from WWE and has been excluded from any 2022 plans regarding Raw, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania 38.

16. Cesaro (Released on February 11)

The “Swiss Superman” has been reported as quietly exiting WWE after failing to come to terms with the company on signing a new deal.

17. Pat Buck (Resigned on April 4)

WWE Match Producer Pat Buck (real name Pat Buckridge) decided to end his run with the company after reportedly fulfilling his desire to produce the main event at a WrestleMania. Buck and fellow producer & WWE Hall of Famer Michael Hayes produced the WrestleMania 38 Sunday main event between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
