Earlier today it was announced that WWE had released Superstars such as Samoa Joe, The IIconics, Bo Dallas, Mickie James, and others. It has now been revealed that Mojo Rawley has also been released by the company.
In an updated statement it now reads,
WWE has come to terms on the release of Samoa Joe, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Tucker, Kalisto, Mojo Rawley, Bo Dallas and Wesley Blake as of today April 15, 2021.
We wish them the best in all of their future endeavors.
Post-WrestleMania is when we typically see WWE perform some spring cleaning when it comes to their talent roster.
Last April we saw dozens of Superstars released which included,
- Kurt Angle
- Drake Maverick
- Zack Ryder
- Curt Hawkins
- Karl Anderson
- Luke Gallows
- Heath Slater
- Eric Young
- Sarah Logan
- No Way Jose
- Mike Chioda
- Mike Kanellis
- Maria Kanellis
- Aiden English
- Lio Rush
We saw many of these names end up in other promotions such as AEW and Impact, but this was perhaps the largest amount of Superstars released in one swoop.
Samoa Joe and the IIconics could fit in at AEW very well, and both have been vastly underutilised in recent months, although Joe has been out with an injury for the better part of a year.
It is surprising that Bo Dallas has been released considering the possible stories they could have added him to alongside his brother, Bray Wyatt.
