WWE fired a dozen Superstars and one referee from the NXT brand last night. The news broke during SmackDown, but plenty of fans saw the news. The pro wrestling world reacted in a big way, and nobody is happy about things.
Bronson Reed reacted to his WWE release by saying that they don’t know what they’ve just done. Then he proceeded to @mention just about every other pro wrestling company on the planet.
Chelsea Green went through her own release from WWE and she has already started on her career after Vince McMahon’s company. The former Hot Mess tweeted out in reply to Bronson Reed’s pot where she gave him a ton of motivation.
It doesn’t matter where you end up, you’ll be successful!!!! You’re a god damn star.
Bronson Reed, Bobby Fish, Leon Ruff, Tyler Rust, Jake Atlas, Mercedes Martinez, Asher Hale, Giant Zanjeer, Zechariah Smith, Kona Reeves, Ari Sterling, Desmond Troy, and referee Stephon Smith lost their jobs. More NXT cuts could be on the way as WWE continues to repackage NXT.
We will have to see what happens with everyone who lost their job on Friday. We’re hoping for the best, but they are all incredibly talented and are sure to break the pro wrestling world wide open.
