Still, there are 72 names listed for 2021 and added to 2020’s list, there are an incredible 125 names listed as leaving WWE in the past 2 years.

The wrestling world has been quick to react to this round of releases with several stars taking to social media to share their thoughts.

Taya Valkyrie who was also recently released by WWE shared a photo of her and her husband John Morrison together from their days in IMPACT Wrestling, adding:

We always have each other, and that’s all that matters. I love you @TheRealMorrison

WWE Hall Of Famer and current NXT announcer Beth Phoenix simply stated:

“I’m so sad”

Some of the stars released also passed comment on the situation with Drake Maverick parodying a video he made following his initial release from the company in 2020.

While Hit Row star Top Dolla hinted that the whole of Hit Row could be getting back together after B-Fab was let go by WWE in the last round of cuts with the other 3 members following this time:
