WWE Releases More Wrestlers: Tyler Breeze, Fandango, Killian Dain, And More Let Go

WWE continues to let wrestlers go.


On Friday, June 25, WWE released 13 wrestlers from the NXT and 205 Live brands, with the highest-profile being Tyler Breeze and Fandango. Many of these releases were confirmed on Twitter. GameSpot reached out to WWE on Friday, but the company has not responded.

The Bollywood Boyz, Sunil Singh and Samir Singh, have announced on Twitter they have been let go by WWE. According to a report from Sean Ross Sapp at Fightful, Tyler Breeze has been reportedly released, along with Killian Dain. At the time of this writing, Breeze has not commented on social media.

Additionally, PWInsider has reported Marina Shafir, Curt Stallion, and Arturo Ruas have also been released by WWE.

WWE is currently laying off another round of wrestlers from the company. Fandango, Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari, Ever-Rise, and August Grey are the most-recent cuts from the company.

While WWE has not commented on social media yet with it's traditional "future endeavored" post, Fandango took to Twitter to thank Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon for employing him the past 14 years.

Fandango was one-half of the tag team Breezango--with Tyler Breeze--known for their entertaining entrances where they wore different occupational outfits, like space suits and construction worker uniforms. Additionally, the duo were exceptionally over with their segment Fashion Files, where they tried to solve crimes backstage. Breeze has become a major part of the YouTube video gaming channel UpUpDownDown with Xavier Woods, with one of their more popular series being Battle of the Brands, where the duo play GM Mode for Raw vs. Smackdown against each other.

Nese was the winner of the 2019 Cruiserweight Tournament and one-time WWE Cruiserweight Champion. He was once a staple of 205 Live--which folded into NXT territory back in September 2019. Recently released Daivari was also a part of the cruiserweight division and had feuds over the past couple of years with Nese, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, and Oney Lorcan. The tag team of Ever-Rise--made up of Chase Parker and Matt Martel--was also released today, and the duo took part in the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Grey was also a member of 205 Live, and was recently promoting a match for Friday night, June 25, on Peacock.

2021 has seen a slew of layoffs from the company, which include headliners names like Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, and Samoa Joe--Joe was recently rehired and is currently working on NXT. This may not be the last round either, as many are predicting more to come.
