According to a report from Bodyslam.net, WWE made several cuts to the production staff of NXT prior to the debut of the “new” NXT on Tuesday.
The releases were made last week and the production staff is now “down to a skeleton crew.” The departures come after WWE made several cuts earlier this year as the company merged several departments into a new WWE Media division. That division is now being overseen by Kevin Dunn.
One of the releases this past week included WWE NXT content producer Cornell Gunter. We reported earlier this year here on eWn that Gunter and his fiancée Nicole tragically lost their newborn son Cairo.
Gunter took to Twitter to react to his release, saying,
It was beautiful run.
Thank you so much for the fun times.
Thank you for making my boyhood dream come true.
I will love you forever, @WWENXT
