The Hit Row certainly had a lot of potential in WWE, after debuting back in NXT last year. They were called up to the WWE main roster during last year’s edition of the WWE Draft and that was seen as a huge thing for many. It seems Roman Reigns offered his support to Swerve Strickland after B-Fab’s release.

Unfortunately, B-Fab from Hit Row was released by WWE back in November last year. That was not all as the company ended up releasing the remaining Hit Row members later in that month as well.

Hit Row members Top Dolla, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, and Ashante “Thee” Adonis had all been let go by the company last year. While speaking with Sanchez Taylor of WrestleTalk, Shane ‘Swerve’ Strickland revealed that Roman Reigns offered him support after B-Fab was released by WWE.

”I wouldn’t say [I lost interest in] pursuing WWE, because I was always interested in being there, but as far as the act of Hit Row, it kind of lost all the soul to it. The heart was gone. You took the heart out of us. Without the heart, everything else kind of falls apart a little bit more. They also didn’t give us the direction or a good enough amount of time to find our next heartbeat and get in the rhythm with everything. So it kinda just was like, ‘Let’s just do what they want, and see how long we can go with this before they make their next decision and move, and we can only adapt from there.


And I remember Roman Reigns talking to me about that, he hit me up in the hallway, he was like, ‘Man I’m sorry about what happened, y’all losing the girl in your group man, that’s heavy’. And I was like, ‘Yeah man we just gotta find ways to adapt and overcome’. He’s like, ‘That’s all you can do really’. And it was a real short conversation, it was just like that.”

Strickland also recently stated that he stopped caring about his WWE run after B-Fab’s release from the company. Hit Row is set to reunite during wrestling event next month as well. We will have to wait and see if the four talents will work in the same company again in the future.
