  1. I can see Ziggler and Benjamin in AEW

  2. Damn I thought Dana Brooke had something in NXT.
    Oh Jason are you gonna miss Dolph’s shitty ass entrance theme?lol

  3. No intention at all to be cruel but with limited house shows now WWE (and aew as well) doesn’t need this massive roster of talents. None of these names are people who surprises me (maybe ziggler but from what I have read he has asked for his release a few times lately).

    Most of these folks haven’t even been on TV in a long time and maybe they can restart their careers in other places

  4. I think Rick Boogs will go down in history as one of the great “what ifs” in wrestling. What if he didn’t get injured? He seemed like he was getting ready for a big push when the injury occurred. Maybe he wouldn’t have gotten over anyway, but who knows? But the year off just killed what little momentum he had.

  5. They can now rehire Mansoor and restart the ‘Coming soon to Raw’ adverts

  6. Dana Brooke and Aliyah : What took ’em so long?

    Moss, Ali & Emma : What a loss. How did WWE fail these guys.
    Gargano, his wife and Theory – given his current state – should be on look out at this point.
