WWE has announced that they have released Samoa Joe. This may be the most shocking name to come out today as Joe was believed to be returning to the ring at some point.
Joe had been doing Raw commentary for the past year but was replaced this week by Corey Graves. Joe had been out of the ring since February of last year due to concussion-related issues. To say that this is shocking is an understatement because he was very well-liked by everyone in the company and if he couldn’t wrestle again then one would assume that there would be a backstage role for him. Joe was last seen this past weekend doing commentary at WrestleMania 37.
Another name just announced as being released is Bo Dallas, who hasn’t been used on WWE TV since late 2019.
