Breaking: WWE Releases multiple superstars
WWE has announced via it's Twitter page that the following wrestlers have been released;
- Braun Strowman
- Aleister Black
- Buddy Murphy
- Ruby Riot
- Santana Garrett
The big shock name there of course being Braun Strowman who recently beat Shane McMahon in a Steel Cage match at WrestleMania, and more recently lost a WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash.
Aleister Black hasn't been on TV in some time since TwitchGate leaving people to wonder if his releationship with Zelina Vega could have played a hand in him not being featured as prominently.
Lana hasn't done much aside from being put through multiple tables since her husband Rusev (Miro) went to AEW so speculation linking her with an AEW move will do doubt begin
Buddy Murphy had a brief stint as Seth Rollins lackey but failed to do anything else of note.
Ruby Riott has been a main stay on the WWE roster since her debut with the Riott Squad, but after failing to win the WWE Womens Tag Team Championships she is obviously not seen as a singles competitor by WWE.
Santana Garrett was best known in WWE for her NXT losing streak and is the least surprising after mainly featuring in squash matches like the recent one against Mercedes Martinez.
All eyes remain on WWE as this could only be the first wave of releases. More news on this story as it occurs.
