Why were they released?

On May 6, 2019, WWE released a number of superstars from its roster. The release of these superstars came as a surprise to many, as WWE had just finished one of its biggest pay-per-view events of the year in WrestleMania 35.

So why were these superstars released? The answer is simple: WWE is looking to cut costs.

In recent years, WWE has been facing increased competition from other wrestling promotions, such as All Elite Wrestling (AEW). In order to stay ahead of the competition, WWE has been forced to cut costs in a number of ways. One way WWE has been cutting costs is by releasing wrestlers who are no longer considered to be valuable to the company.

The release of these superstars will save WWE millions of dollars in salary and travel expenses. Additionally, by releasing these wrestlers, WWE can now sign new wrestlers who are cheaper and may have more potential than the ones who were just released.

What are their future plans?

Several WWE superstars were unexpectedly released from the company on Black Wednesday, April 15, 2020. Among those let go were Samoa Joe, Aleister Black, and Peyton Royce. While it’s always sad to see talented people lose their jobs, it’s especially hard during a global pandemic when so many are struggling. So what do these wrestlers do now that they’ve been released from WWE?

Aleister Black
Aleister Black was a fan favorite during his time in NXT, but he never quite caught on with the main roster audience. He was released along with several other wrestlers on Black Wednesday. Black has since taken to social media to say that he’s not sure what his future holds, but he’s grateful for the opportunities he’s had and is looking forward to whatever comes next.

Peyton Royce
Peyton Royce was part of the extremely popular NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions The IIconics with Billie Kay. The team won the titles twice and were incredibly popular with fans. Unfortunately, they were never able to transition that success to the main roster and were ultimately released. Royce took to Instagram after her release to say that she’s excited for what the future holds and is grateful for her time in WWE.

Samoa Joe
Samoa Joe is one of the most popular WWE superstars of all time and was a top star in NXT before being called up to the main roster. He’s a former United States Champion and had a lengthy feud with then-WWE Champion AJ Styles. Samoa Joe was surprisingly released on Black Wednesday, but he quickly bounced back by signing with AEW. He made his debut on Dynamite just days after his release and is already being positioned as a top star in the company.

It was a bittersweet moment for WWE fans when the company released several top superstars on Black Wednesday. While many were happy to see some of their favorite wrestlers get released from their contracts, others were saddened by the news. Let’s take a look at some of the WWE superstars who were released.

WWE Aftermath

After Crown Jewel, WWE made some releases. It was a bit of a surprising move considering how close we are to Survivor Series. With that being said, let’s take a look at who was released.

What does this mean for WWE?

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for WWE. First, they had to deal with the serious health scare involving Roman Reigns. Then, on Monday, it was reported that numerous WWE superstars had been released from the company. Among those let go were Samoa Joe, The Great Khali, Braun Strowman, and Mickie James.

While it’s never easy to see superstars get released, it’s a necessary part of the business. With WWE signing so many new superstars to deals in recent years, there simply wasn’t enough room on the roster for everyone. With that said, WWE will likely look to sign some of these released superstars to new deals in the near future.

As for what this means for WWE moving forward, it remains to be seen. On one hand, they have lost some very talented performers. On the other hand, this could be a chance for some younger superstars to get a push. Only time will tell how this all plays out.

What does this mean for the released superstars?

While this may come as a shock to some, WWE released a number of superstars on April 15th, 2020. The company has been struggling as of late due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this is likely just one of the many cost-cutting measures that WWE will have to take in order to stay afloat. So, what does this mean for the released superstars?

For starters, all of the released superstars are now free to sign with any other wrestling promotion that they choose. This could include All Elite Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, or even return to WWE’s main competition, World Championship Wrestling. While WCW is no longer in operation, there are a number of independent promoters who would love to sign former WWE superstars.

Another option for the released superstars is to start their own promotions. This has become increasingly popular in recent years with the success of promotions like Ring of Honor and Major League Wrestling. With the right team in place, there’s no reason why a released superstar couldn’t start their own successful promotion.

Of course, the released superstars could also choose to retire from professional wrestling altogether. Many wrestlers have successful careers outside of wrestling and may choose to focus on those pursuits from now on. Others may simply want to enjoy a more quiet life away from the spotlight.

No matter what these released superstars decide to do next, one thing is for sure – their lives have been changed forever.
