Aiden English Released By WWE In Wave Of Cuts

Aiden English has been let go by WWE.

The 32-year old former NXT Tag Team Champion in English was released by the company during a wave of cuts related to cost reduction due to COVID-19. He'd been working as an announcer of late after one of the top in-ring runs of his career.

English was brought up to WWE Smackdown as a member of the Vaudevillains with Simon Gotch, before the latter's release.

English got over huge as a member of Rusev Day, which would see him singing along with the also now-released Rusev. After a turn and a feud culminated, English was pulled from in-ring competition to serve as commentator for 205 Live. Though he's been out of the ring for over a year, he'd noted publicly earlier in 2020 that his in-ring days were not over. 

Aiden is married to Shaul Guerrero, the daughter of the late Eddie Guerrero.
