WWE releases eight more Superstars, including all of Hit Row

The surprising list also includes names like John Morrison and Tegan Nox.

WWE has released eight more Superstars tonight, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.

The released names are:

  • John Morrison
  • Top Dolla
  • Ashante Adonis
  • Isaiah Swerve Scott
  • Tegan Nox
  • Drake Maverick
  • Shane Thorne
  • Jaxson Ryker

Many of these names are shocking — John Morrison returned to WWE in 2019 and has been regularly featured alongside The Miz since, Tegan Nox was a fan favorite who had recently been called up to the main roster, and Drake Maverick managed to evade release in 2020.

However, most surprising is perhaps all of Hit Row being released just weeks after they were drafted by SmackDown. B Fab of Hit Row was released earlier this month, but the four remaining members have been featured on every episode of SmackDown since. The group had less than a month to attempt to get over in front of the blue brand’s audience.

According to Fightful, WWE executive John Laurinaitis cited budget cuts as the reason for the releases in an internal email.
