    Are you kidding? why was Bronson Reed releaseed? He just won north champion 3 months ago!

  2. Mackdeezy says:

    Mercedes Martinez is a surprising one. Then again… maybe she gave them a bad feeling when she didn’t wanna play ball during that stupid retribution thing.

  3. Gerry says:

    Bobby fish is the only name that surprised me

  4. Bronson reed is a big shock to me. Why don’t they release Oney Larchin and Danny Birch.

  5. CM Chippunk says:

    Are these charitable donations to AEW tax deductible? 😂

  6. Me fool says:

    I wonder if Vince in his “infinite wisdom” thinks are is going to go bankrupt taking all the talent and run them out of business

  7. What? says:

    Reed is the only one that makes zero sense – he was almost ready for the main roster. Second-biggest shock was Martinez, but the Retribution idea makes sense. Fish is surprising, but he is 44 years old and undersized by Vince’s standards. Some people might be sad about Ruff, but he already had the storyline he was going to have – you can only ride the “undersized underdog” thing for so long unless you’re a Rey Mysterio level of talented. It will be interesting to see what effect, if any, Rust’s release has on Diamond Mine, unless it’s basically just going to be Roderick Strong now. On his own he was kind of whatever, as was Atlas, and the rest hadn’t made regular TV yet.
