Tino Sabbatelli, Taynara Conti, Mars Wang, Cezar Bononi, Dorian Mak, Nick Ogarelli Among WWE Releases

More WWE releases have come to light.

As reported on Fightful Select Friday, former NFL player Tino Sabbatelli, 36, was cut by WWE as a part of their cost-reducing measures in relation to COVID-19. Sabbatelli is best known for his appearance on 2015's Breaking Ground, but missed almost two years due to injury.

Monster Factory product and 29-year old Nick Ogarelli announced that he'd been released, after being signed to WWE in early 2019. He never made his NXT TV debut.

Cezar Bononi, 33, was also released after several years with the company and a dozen matches on NXT TV. His career highlight would be a quick win over Andrade in 2017, but would never win on a televised NXT show again and was primarily used in an enhancement role.

Tanyara Conti, 24, was released just a few months after walking out of NXT over disagreements over money and booking. She returned briefly before the release, and had competed in two editions of the Mae Young Classic, over a dozen episodes of NXT TV, and even the WrestleMania 34 Women's Battle Royal.

Mars Wang's several-year run with WWE came to an end before he could debut on TV. He was planned as a part of WWE's expansion into China, which ran into some hiccups as they struggled to develop talnet from the area.

31-year old Dorian Mak was cut after signing with WWE way back in 2015. It looked like he was poised for a big NXT TV debut in 2016 when vignettes were produced for him, but ultimately were to further an angle for Samoa Joe. He was tried out as a manager before the release ultimately happened.

Announcer Jon Quasto, interviewer Kathy Campanelli were also released, in addition to the previously revealed Aleksandar Jaksic, Deonna Purrazzo and MJ Jenkins

It should be noted, these releases were made with the original round of cuts, but did not emerge until days later. Fightful inquired to WWE about why released NXT names haven't been published, and did not get a response.
