World Wrestling Entertainment has been on a firing spree of late. A couple of releases that were announced yesterday surprised me.
I was slightly taken back when I found out that Aleister Black was let go considering it looked like he was set for a re-push. He had been filming vignettes for the past few weeks and made a return to the ring almost a fortnight ago to interfere in the Intercontinental Championship match by costing Big E the win.
It obviously looked like Black was set to go on to feud with the former Intercontinental Champion over the summer.
That plan has evidently changed now that Black was released yesterday.
The biggest shock of yesterday's layoffs was Braun Strowman.
