WWE releases Braun Strowman among several other big names

WWE just released several major names. Moments ago, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com that WWE had released the following wrestlers today:

  • Braun Strowman
  • Aleister Black
  • Ruby Riott
  • Lana
  • Santana Garrett
  • Buddy Murphy

“Fightful has learned the following WWE wrestlers have been released,” Ross Sapp Wrote. “Braun Strowman Aleister Black Ruby Riott Lana Santana Garrett Buddy Murphy.”

These releases include talent that mostly competed on the main roster. These moves seem to be an extension of the budget cuts that came over a month ago. The previous wave of releases came on April 15, 2021, a year to the day WWE released a number of talent in 2020. A few weeks later, WWE also released several NXT wrestlers.

WWE has officially confirmed the news with a post on its own website.
