Reactions As WWE Part Ways With Aleister Black, Braun Strowman & Others

  • Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful was the first to report on Twitter that a bunch of releases were on the horizon.

WWE’s recent release of several big names in one go has come as such a shock that pro-wrestling Twitter is currently in shambles.

Here are the names that WWE has let go this time around: Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett, and Buddy Murphy,  EKO HOT BLOG  gathered.

Aleister Black’s release came as a huge shock to the WWE Universe as he had seemingly found his footing on SmackDown again and it looked like good things were ahead of him on the blue brand.

Black himself sounded surprised by his release in his reaction to the same:

“I’m gathering my thoughts as this was a complete left field for me as obviously we just started the dark father character but this was it, thank you so much WWE universe for allowing me to create and give you small bits of myself.”

Another big release that has left fans dumbstruck is that of Braun Strowman.

Strowman was the Universal Champion last year and won the belt by defeating WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg at WrestleMania 36.

He recently cut a promo reacting to WWE going back to presenting live shows in July and the promo was shared by WWE on its official social media handles.

(1) WWE has come to terms on the release of Vince McMahon, the CEO of WWE

(2) WWE continues to make it harder and harder for their fans to stay loyal to them. If they release an already established star with a devoted fanbase those fans are gonna continue to show their support for that wrestler even if it means supporting a rivaling company over them.
