WWE has announced that they have released Billie Kay and Mickie James.
WWE’s statement reads: “WWE has come to terms on a release of Billie Kay and Mickie James as of today April 15, 2021. We wish Billie and Mickie the best in all of their future endeavors.”
Billie teamed with Carmella during the Tag Team Turmoil match at WrestleMania and James recently did commentary for the NXT TakeOver pre-show on Peacock.
Billie has been floundering on SmackDown for months after they broke her away from Peyton Royce. Kay has been primarily used in a comedy role showing her resume to other characters in hopes of someone hiring her.
James has been off TV since getting injured last year but she’s been cleared for several months. Apparently, WWE couldn’t find something for her to do.
