Why is it
Why is it 'clean up season' in WWE all of a sudden?

Many were shocked when the news first broke. Not one, not two, but three superstars were recently released from the WWE. They are Tye Dillinger, Hideo Itami, and TJP. Not long before that Arn Anderson, who worked backstage with WWE was released as well. Everybody's been wondering why this is the case.

I do not work backstage with WWE and so, cannot provide you with specifics. But I've been working in this industry and following the product for some time, so I have a fair idea. I'll try and shed more light on this situation through this article.

Please share your thoughts and views in the comments. At the outset, I want to wish all of these men all the best in their future endeavors.

Here is the reason why they may have been released.

#5 A spring clean-up happens annually

This is not the first time a bunch of superstars have been let go at once

While this may be a surprising development for new fans of the product, WWE has always let go of a bunch of talent on a near-annual basis. Remember the time two years ago when Darren Young, Emma, and Summer Rae were released all at once? WWE just announces a whole bunch of releases at one time, to make way for new faces to replace them.

The year prior to that it was Wade Barrett, Hornswoggle, Cameron and many others. The idea is to have a fresh roster, and let go of the names who aren't necessarily being used on TV. And this isn't the fault of the talent, but it's always based on the way they've been booked and the opportunities they've been provided.

WWE always has the top athletes in the world vying for the topmost spot. And therefore, there's always more supply than demand every year.
