2021 will be remembered in WWE as the year of the return to the (almost complete) old normality after the pandemic, the remodeling of NXT and unfortunately the personnel cuts.
Last two points that are inevitably connected, since most of these names that had to leave the McMahon Empire came from the former golden brand and had the support of Triple H.
And of all the rounds of dismissals, the one that occurred on November 4 was perhaps the most notorious for the category of those involved, even above the one that occurred on April 15.
Let’s remember if not the names that were part of it: Keith Lee, Nia Jax, Ember Moon, Karrion Kross, Mia Yim, Gran Metalik, Lince Dorado, Oney Lorcan , Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Eva Marie.
► Officially in the ex-WWE club
Group of competitors who are in luck, because that 90-day non-competitive clause expired yesterday, so they are available to fight anywhere. Let’s remember that today is Wednesday and you know what that means…
Keith Lee recently registered his nickname “Limitless” and in recent weeks there has been talk that he could join Shane Taylor again (also a free agent) to recover his duo The Pretty Boy Killers.
Nia Jax says she has no intention of continuing Wrestling. And we recently learned that she refused to participate in the Royal Rumble. Or rather, she was part of a list of potential participants.
Ember Moon is rumored to be the next ” All Elite “. But in the meantime, Athena will be at Baltimore CelebFest on Sunday.
WWE Fired Superstars:
Karrion Kross (already under his previous alias, Killer Kross) via Scarlett , ruled out his return to Impact Wrestling . For now, we know that the gladiator appears to have joined EC3’s Control Your Narrative faction and will go head to head with Flip Gordon this Saturday at WrestlePro’s Killer Instinct event . Further, among other commitments, next month it will be seen by QPW’s Super Slam III .
Mia Yim has acted as a “streamer” during these last two months and has not confirmed any luchistic appointment with any promotion so far.
Gran Metalik, back to his Golden Mask name. He has wasted little time joining independent shows. The first, GCW / Loko Fightclub 2: Houston, to be held this Friday. Union to GCW that will be extended to two more dates throughout the month.
Golden Lynx won’t sit idly by either, with Blitzkrieg implications! Pro, Warrior Wrestling, or REVOLVER that run through the weekend of WrestleMania 38 .
Oney Lorcan (currently Biff Busick) will have his return to the “indies” on Friday at Beyond Wrestling Day 91 and, like Athena, is one of the guest stars at Baltimore CelebFest.
Davey Boy Smith Jr. has hinted on social networks that he will return to Japan. Although we have no concrete news about his future.
Eva Marie does not intend to continue on the rings either. And last month we learned that she will be part of the movie Phoenix Rises with Randy Couture and Oleg Prodius (ex-WWE Vladimir Kozlov).
