Hit Row is now completely gone from WWE. First, B-Fab was released by the company. Yesterday, the rest of the group were given their walking papers. Multiple companies have already expressed interest in signing Swerve Scott, the standout of the group.

Fightful Select has reported that the company was high on the team. Mixed online reaction to the Twitter account of AJ “Top Dolla” Francis contributed to the loss of confidence in Hit Row. Ultimately, the company had no direction for the group.

It was said that AJ Francis was “polarizing” due to his online antics, but it wasn’t noted if any of that possible heat led to their release.

We haven’t heard anything specifically about Hit Row as a unit, outside of that AJ Francis’ polarizing reaction on Twitter did carry over to some within the company. A couple of internal WWE sources compared it to Greg Hamilton “getting a little too comfortable.” We were told this was not the specific factor leading to his release or that of the group, but was an internal observation. There were others that enjoyed his approach within the company.

Hit Row members all face a 90-day non-compete clause. The team was recently moved to the main roster from NXT. Had they stayed, it would only have been a 30-day wait.

It sounds like Francis and Swerve will have the most interest out of all the members of the group. Major organizations are said to be interested in Scott. That would likely include AEW and Impact Wrestling.

It’s unknown whether Hit Row plans to try and stick together as a group as they enter post-WWE life. It’s obvious that Swerve Scott is going to garner the most interest. We’ll see how loyal the group is when it comes to business.

Do you think Hit Row will stick together? Let us know in the comments!
