WWE icon John Cena has reacted to the news of the most recent WWE roster cuts and commented on one of the released star’s reaction events.
On November 18th, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful broke the news that 8 WWE Superstars were set to be let go by the company. It emerged that Hit Row, John Morrison, Tegan Nox, Jaxson Ryker, Shane Thorne, and Drake Maverick were the ones leaving the company.
Some of those stars have since reacted on social media while the wider wrestling world has also been reacting to the shocking events.
Drake Maverick used social media to release a video reacting to his release. The video message parodied a heartfelt and emotional message he released last year when he was initially let go by the company before being re-signed.
Sixteen time champion of the world John Cena reacted to Maverick’s message, calling the English star “gifted:”
“This is worth a watch. Very well done and very powerful message by a gifted performer.”

The latest round of roster cuts brings the number of WWE Superstars released by the company in 2021 to eighty. The reason given for the cuts is said to be the same as previously with John Laurinaitis reported to be telling people that it was down to “budget cuts.”
