While several WWE talents are expected to be released after WrestleMania, most of those will likely not come as a result of WWE Superstars on WGN America being canceled, as some are speculating. WWE is planning to still tape Superstars for their website and international TV markets. Still, several midcard talents will be released to make way for new stars from FCW.
WWE’s RAW event on March 18th in Hartford, CT drew 9,200 fans for $295,000; the SmackDown show on March 18th in Roanoke, VA drew 6,000 for $200,000 and the March 19th show in Charleston, WV drew 5,300 for $168,000.
FCW 15 Champion Seth Rollins, the former Tyler Black, was told he would be used on the new season of WWE NXT, which would be the second time he has been told he would be coming up to TV. Several wrestlers were told they would be used on the current NXT season but plans were changed at the last minute.
