Hit Row no longer exists in WWE. After B-Fab was let go by the company, the rest followed in yesterday’s mass release. While it seems like Top Dolla and Swerve Scott have big enough names to find a good landing spot, the rest of the group may face nervous times ahead.
It turns out that WWE had high hopes for the group. There were big pitches for the faction, but it’s not known how far those plans got. Fightful Select broke the backstage news.
“There were some significant creative pitches for Hit Row, we just haven’t heard how far they got. There was plenty of back and forth internally as to who should lead as the singles talent in the group, if they should be faces or heels, and the direction for them in general.”
The recently released members of Hit Row took to social media to react to the news. Adonis thanked WWE for the opportunity in his reaction on Twitter. Top Dolla said the group got to make something special and will do so again. Swerve Scott simply posted a devil emoji.
The group showed a lot of promise. Scott was given a lengthy run with the NXT North American title, but was never allowed to defend it. The company was said to not be thrilled about Top Dolla’s social media freestyles. In the end, things just didn’t work out.
Now, the members of Hit Squad must plan their next move. Whether they will try to stay together as a group is questionable. There should be major interest in Swerve Scott and at least somebody will want to take a look at Top Dolla. Hit Row might be a hard sell looking to promoters who want to book the standout members if it’s a package deal.
