lol I saw the news, came here to make a thread but checked Gertner's profile first because I assumed he was already on it and saw he was making a thread

Billie Kay was genuinely hilarious in the clips I've seen her in since they broke up the IIconics for some dumb reason

Kalisto was criminally underused

Chelsea Green ran into bad luck getting hurt on her main roster debut, but she may have asked for her release as she's pretty openly tweeted about how she wasn't getting booked despite recovering

Bad News Gertner 04-15-2021 03:27 PM

I really thought Kalisto was gonna be huge. A Luchador who does cool moves and speaks English.

Slik 04-15-2021 03:32 PM

Of that bunch Kalisto is the one I'd imagine companies will compete for. He's good at what he does.

I'm surprised at Billie Kay since I gathered she was featured prominently on SD and was fairly over. She's not a particularly good wrestler (at all) but she seemed to have a solid gimmick.

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 03:34 PM

OH FUCK Samoa Joe is gone

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 03:34 PM

oh and Bo Dallas

I'd wager that Joe asked for his release if he was certain WWE wouldn't clear him.

Bad News Gertner 04-15-2021 03:45 PM

Petyon Royce released

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 03:47 PM

Sean Ross Sapp is saying that Johnny Ace is making these calls to talents, since he’s head of Talent Relations again, and is giving them the excuse of “budget cuts” as to why they’re being let go.

Record profits. Just shelled out millions to pay Bad Bunny and Logan Paul probably. But yeah budget cuts.

Bad News Gertner 04-15-2021 03:50 PM

He could easily say "Creative has nothing for you" and be completely justified.

At least that would be honest and transparent.

Jordan 04-15-2021 03:54 PM

Dayyyyyum. Joe gotta go to AEW.

owenbrown 04-15-2021 03:55 PM

Fuck you WWE

ClockShot 04-15-2021 03:57 PM

After Wrestlemania, taking a look at the roster.

Nah. This isn't Black Thursday. Vince called the maids in. It's the annual spring cleaning of the roster.

I'll chime in further when I get off work.

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 03:57 PM

I'd be all for the IIconics in AEW. Don't need to give them a big push or anything as there are plenty of far superior in-ring women's workers there but other than Britt Baker the division is sorely lacking personality.

Record profits strikes again!

Emperor Smeat 04-15-2021 04:08 PM

Out of that list, the only real notable loss is Samoa Joe since at least on commentary he was better and more enjoyable to listen than almost all of WWE's other commentators.

Chelsea Green was the biggest dud mostly because she barely did anything notable during her time in the company even if some of it was due to injury issues. She didn't even get a real big push in NXT which shows not even Triple & co. thought that highly of her.

Emperor Smeat 04-15-2021 04:12 PM

WWE really needs better timing with their releases and pay freeze announcements since if Johnny Ace is claiming its due to "budget" reasons, then maybe don't release a company report a couple days prior revealing that you shelled out millions to upper management for their yearly compensation.

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 04:15 PM

Velveteen Dream is still employed as of right now.

Looks like another $10,000,000 about to be added to AEW's bloated payroll :rofl:

Don't forget Jordan Devlin as well since the allegations against him was just as bad as the allegations against Dream.

Shit, only notable that would actually work is Joe, Green, and Royce.

IC Champion 04-15-2021 04:32 PM

I can’t believe they cut Soma Joe.

Loose Cannon 04-15-2021 04:33 PM

honestly, they weren't doing anything with these people anyway, so probably for the best. I didn't even know that Dallas was still employed.

Evil Vito 04-15-2021 04:34 PM

I want Samoa Joe vs. Josh Barnett at the next Bloodsport.

erickman 04-15-2021 04:40 PM

i can see kay and royce taking the impact womens belts. mickie james i see ether going to nwa with her husband. bo will sale houses. joe he is a hard one if he has much left aew if not part timer impact before he moves to color.

weather vane 04-15-2021 04:54 PM

Joe comes in and takes Cage out of Team Taz. First good feud no?

Emperor Smeat 04-15-2021 05:03 PM

Out of the list, seems AEW is interested in Chelsea Green based on a recent teaser tweet by Cody.

That feels about right.

Billie and Peyton would thrive better as a team and in Impact before making a potential jump later to AEW. Would also give them a chance to get rid of any WWE stink and not be seen as just another WWE castoff going right to AEW.

Joe could also go to ROH as well since he has some great past history there.

Ryker.

ClockShot 04-15-2021 06:42 PM

Well, Joe is the big name on that list. Don't know if he got clearance from his Doctor to get back in the ring. Wouldn't be surprised if Impact called him up. Would be interesting to see him in AEW, but only as a backstage guy like a coach or something.

I have no doubt that Shawn Spears hopped on the phone and advocated to either Cody or Tony Khan to bring the missus in. Would not be surprised in the least if Billie Kay follows her.

Chelsea Green to AEW ASAP. But, she has to go back to the hot mess gimmick.
