The SmackDown tag team division is about to see a battle as several teams prepare for a gauntlet match to determine the next challengers for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. However, one team, in particular, seems to have hit a significant setback within the company, because there are no future plans for Hit Row.
Hit Row’s disappointment can be attributed to the inconsistent treatment they have received. Despite their undeniable charisma and entertaining abilities, they have often been relegated to minor roles or completely left off television. This lack of consistent support has hindered their progress and prevented them from developing a devoted fan base, leading to a diminished impact on WWE programming.
In their most recent appearance, Hit Row faced defeat against The Club and subsequently endured a post-match attack from AJ Styles. According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer on Filthy Four, WWE has no creative plans for Hit Row, but they will not be released from the company.
”If it was a year ago, we would be going man these guys better answer their phone. I would not answer my phone if I were Hit Row. But they’re not firing anyone anymore. They haven’t fired anyone since before Vince left. And they’re still here. They do nothing with the, and they get buried.”
Triple H brought Hit Row back to WWE after Vince McMahon fired them. Now, we will have to see what happens next for them.
Ringside News exclusively reported that we were told by a tenured member of the WWE creative team that, “Nothing happened to Hit Row.” The fact is that Hit Row was never brought back to WWE, so they could be on top. Since Hit Row isn’t viewed as top talent, then they might not appear on television every week.
A lot of fans would like to see Bianca Belair and Street Profits take the leap into the heel side of the roster. Only time will tell if that happens.
