UPDATE: According to a report from Sean Ross Sapp, Scott Armstrong has been released from WWE.
On April 15, 2020, Armstrong was furloughed from WWE along with several other producers due to the COVID-19 cutbacks, but he returned on October 4.
It should be noted that these are shocking cuts as these are the guys who produced and wrote the weekly WWE NXT 2.0 shows. All of the cuts today are on the management side but it’s possible we’ll see talent cuts coming at some point as well.
