We reported over the past couple weeks of WWE budget cuts and how the company is hoping to have an improved bottom line profit by the year’s end. Those cuts included pyros, Renee Young’s Unfiltered show, and their weekly Talking Smack series. It was expected that more cuts would be made in the future and we are starting to see more now.
WWE has now decided to cut Cathy Kelley’s NXT Insider show that aired on social media platforms. Cathy responded to the recent cut on Twitter with the following remarks:
RIP #NXTInsider i thought we were safe

We have also heard that these changes to the budget have sidelining future projects. The company has decided to drop R-Truth’s game show idea and it’s now being said that plans for a weekly UK show are on the back burner for now. Jim Ross, who was expected to be announcing for the weekly show, mentioned on his podcast that he does not know where things stand with the show.
It will be interesting to see what else the company cuts moving forward.
