WWE continues to release talents today as Samoa Joe, Bo Dallas, Kalisto, Tucker and Wesley Blake.
As noted earlier at this link, WWE wished Mickie James, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce and Chelsea Green the best in their future endeavors.
There is no exact word on what led to each departure as of this writing, but this is likely another round of post-WrestleMania roster cleaning.
Joe last wrestled in February 2020 but had been doing RAW commentary while recovering from injuries. He was removed from the RAW team this past Monday when Corey Graves and newcomer Adnan Virk were brought on. He had been with WWE since May 2015.
Dallas had not wrestled since WWE Crown Jewel in October 2019 and there had been no explanation for his absence, but it was recently reported that he was preparing for life after wrestling by getting into real estate and living on the farm he shares with Liv Morgan. Dallas had been with WWE since 2008.
Kalisto last competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on last week’s SmackDown. He had been with WWE since May 2013.
Tucker also last competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on last week’s SmackDown. He had been with WWE since late 2013.
Blake had been with WWE since June 2013. He last competed in a Fatal 4 Way at the Money In the Bank 2020 pay-per-view, but was briefly brought to SmackDown in December of last year for a quick program with King Baron Corbin.
Stay tuned for more. Below is WWE’s announcement on the departures:
