    Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Murphy, More Released from WWE Contracts
    MIKE CHIARI
    JUNE 2, 2021

    WWE announced some shocking talent releases Wednesday, headlined by Braun Strowman and Aleister Black.

    The company noted that it also parted ways with Ruby Riott, Lana, Murphy and Santana Garrett.

    WWE's latest releases come less than two months after it terminated the contracts of several other Superstars, including Samoa Joe, Mickie James, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.

    Of the releases, Strowman enjoyed the most success in WWE, having held the Universal Championship for 141 days last year.

    Strowman won the title with a victory over Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 and did not relinquish it until SummerSlam 2020, when he lost to "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt.

    The Monster Among Men, who made his main roster debut in 2015, also held the Intercontinental Championship once and the Raw Tag Team Championships twice. He also won the 2018 men's Money in the Bank ladder match.

    Strowman was involved in a high-profile match at WrestleMania 37 a couple of months ago, beating Shane McMahon in a steel cage match. He then competed for the WWE Championship in a Triple Threat match against Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania Backlash last month.

    Perhaps just as shocking as the release of Strowman was the decision to part ways with Black, who just recently returned to WWE programming after a lengthy hiatus.

    Going to be a lot of talent out there just as things are starting to pick up. Some of the companies like ROH, NWA, etc could benefit from this if so and the previous releases.

    The women's side of the roster is pretty sparse. I think there are only 7 women there now.

    Programming note.

    There will be no AEW Dynamite tonight, since TNT is covering the NBA Playoffs.

    AEW Dynamite will be on Friday night at 9:00 Central.

    WWE doesn't need to release wrestlers but the story script writers. They suck.

    Andrade debuted for AEW last night. Hopefully he gets a better chance than Vince have him. Another missed opportunity by WWE in my opinion. One of many.

    Yep. Saw Mark Henry also. Once the non-compete clause expires I'm guessing more ex-WWE folks will be showing up also.

    WWE should release Randy Orton. He is boring to me. Never changes his character . I believe he made more than Braun Strowman. Strowman should have stayed.

    Andrade
    Zulina Vega
    Buddy Murphy
    Peyton Royce
    Billie Kaye
    Lana
    Braun Strowman should have stayed

    I would have cut
    Randy Orton
    Robert Roode
    Natalia
    Nikki Cross
    Ruby Riott
    Ali
    Xavier Woods
    Cedric Alexander
    Bayley

    I expect that too. I think WWE is helping out the competition with their own incompetence.

    I wish I could write scripts.

    Keith Lee should be like Bob Sapp's character in The Longest Yard or like Michael Duncan Clarke's character in THE GREEN MILE. Nice guillable guy not wanting to hurt a fly . Have MVP be cheating him but acting like he is his friend .

    They could have Lana get bonked on the head and act like she is Russian again. She keeps getting knocked on the head and she becomes Sybil( Multiple personality wrestlers)

    wwe was dumb to dump braun strowman.
    they missed a golden opportunity.
    strowman should have been the fiend that got summoned by bray.
    that could've launched into a rivalry with taker and kane.
    then he destroys lesnar.
    it would've been cool.
    strowman would've been a great fiend.

    im not saying i dont like bray wyatt as the fiend...but the wyatt family was creepy.
    strowman should've been the monster....not some guy in a sheep mask.
    it should've been THE FIEND OR MONSTER.

    but what do i know.
    i clean toilets.
