WWE’s latest crop of main roster releases are now free to compete wherever they want. Top Dolla was among those releases, and he didn’t waste much time in making some noise in the pro wrestling world.

AJ Francis, formerly known as Top Dolla during his tenure in WWE, marked his initial appearance following his departure from the company. This was not an announced appearance, but fans were certainly surprised to see him.

The surprise went down at the GCW Holiday Special on December 21st, where Francis, concealed by a mask, ambushed Joey Janela. It appears that AJ Francis is getting off to a good start in Game Changer Wrestling.

The unexpected assault added an intriguing layer to the event, capturing the attention of wrestling fans, who never expected to see him in the first place. AJ Francis left fans wondering what is next for him after he revealed his identity under that mask.


Top Dolla’s WWE journey ended suddenly after he was released. Now, he is onto his next destination in pro wrestling, and since that 90-day non-compete clause is up, he isn’t wasting any time.
