As expected, WWE released more talent today and some of the names are pretty surprising.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported today the following wrestlers have been released by WWE:

– Braun Strowman

– Aleister Black

– Ruby Riott

– Lana

– Santana Garrett

– Buddy Murphy

WWE issued the following statement:

“WWE has come to terms on the releases of Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Murphy, Ruby Riott and Santana Garrett. WWE wishes them the best in all of their future endeavors. “

Strowman had been pushed as a top star for the company in the last few years and just worked in a WWE Title program with Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley at last month’s WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view event. He’s also a former Universal Champion as he beat Goldberg for it at WrestleMania 36.

On the flip side, Black had just been booked into a program with Big E on SmackDown and was seen as recently as two weeks ago.
