Quote  Dave Meltzer reports that Kassius Ohno (aka Chris Hero) was part of this week’s WWE layoffs.

As of this writing, it’s unknown whether he was laid off or furloughed. He changed his Twitter name to ‘WWE Alumni’. He has yet to confirm the news publicly as of this writing.

Not much of a shock, Ohno had been used in a player coach role in NXT UK in recent times, it had always been clear there weren't big plans for him in WWE and I don't think he would ever be used on Raw or Smackdown. 

He has a good record on the indies, he could be a decent pick up for AEW as a solid hand to work with their younger inexperienced talent otherwise I can see him heading to ROH or Impact. 

So far all the WWE releases have been sound business decisions. Most of the talent let go were low card used as enhancement talent who can easily be replaced with lesser known NXT and performance centre talent who are far cheaper to use for preliminary style matches. 

The bigger names let go like Rusev, Gallows, Anderson and ECIII have all had backstage issues or requested their releases in the past. I saw some people today complaining about the release of Mike Bennett due to his wife having a baby, this is a guy who had a lot of time off for drug issues and then asked for his release just shortly after signing a long-term deal. If anything he should have been the first name cut.

ECIII and Gallows and Anderson are said to be appearing at Slammiversary for Impact Wrestling, not sure if this is a long-term arrangement or a one shot deal. I did see a report that Gallows/Anderson are negotiating a deal that would allow them to work for Impact and NJPW. 
There has also been teases from Rusev about appearing for Impact. 

I would be disappointed if AEW missed out on all these guys, I understand them not having huge interest in Gallows and Anderson as they were mostly portrayed as jobbers in WWE and it will take them a while to shake off that stigma, but ECIII and Rusev are talent that should definitely be on AEW's radar. They seem to be missing the boat too often with some of the free agent talent out there.

They cant sign everyone WWE releases though because they are already getting criticism for being a WWE lite as it is with Jericho (some backlash when he was first champ), Morley, Hager etc

I do think though they should have signed Rusev - he was so badly used in WWE yet was so over, good in the ring, can cut a good promo - he literally has it all

Amazing they wouldn't want to sign Gallows and Anderson if only due to the fact that they were og Bullet Club.
