WWE releases Braun Strowman, Aleister Black and more in surprising decision

WWE has made another round of cuts that includes some shocking names.

Wrestlers Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Murphy, Ruby Riott and Santana Garrett were all released on Wednesday, WWE announced.

Strowman, real name Adam Scherr, was in a major pay-per-view title match just 17 days ago when he was in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre. The 37-year-old defeated Goldberg for the Universal title at last year’s WrestleMania.

“Im gathering my thoughts as this was a complete left field for me as obviously we just started the dark father character but this was it, thank you so much WWE universe for allowing me to create and give you small bits of myself,” Black, real name Tom Budgen, wrote on Twitter.
