As previously noted, video footage was published of WWE NXT referee and former wrestler Drake Wuertz giving a speech during a Seminole County Board of County Commissioners meeting. While wearing an NXT shirt, Wuertz talked about how continuing to have a mask mandate “only puts vulnerable children at risk of being preyed upon by traffickers and predators.”
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com reported the following on Wednesday afternoon…
Came in as a guy who everyone wanted hired under any circumstances, and then left as a guy who everyone wanted FIRED under any circumstances. What a shame.

John Pollock of PostWrestling.com confirmed the report…
Source has confirmed to me that Drake Wuertz has been released by WWE, first reported by @SeanRossSapp.
Was informed that there were other cuts as well.
