– The cancellation of the weekly WWE NXT Insider video hosted by Cathy Kelley was said to be another budget cut, according to F4Wonline.com. WWE recently stopped using pyro for ring entrances as a cost-cutting measure, and because they no longer feel the need for the pyro.

WWE Hall of Famer Edge and Christian recently indicated on their podcast that their WWE Network show likely won’t be returning for another season due to financial reasons. Renee Young’s “Unfiltered” show was also recently nixed.
