Considering this sudden and surprising news, “Wrestling Twitter” was quick to react. Here are some notable tweets in response to WWE’s latest releases.
Braun Strowman was just in a WWE Championship match having wrestled Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.— Gary Cassidy (@WrestlingGary) June 2, 2021
Aleister Black just returned with some of the most well-produced vignettes we’ve seen in recent years.
A lot of money been put into both men. Insane to see them released!
I can't imagine not having any creative plans for Braun Strowman.— _denisesalcedo (@_denisesalcedo) June 2, 2021
WWE are just making AEW even stronger at this point.— Darryl #ENICOut #LevyOut #ConteIN 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️ (@ESC__THFC__WWE) June 2, 2021
I don't what's up backstage but all is not well imo.
Braun has been a Main Eventer for a good couple of years.
Aleister just returned to start a feud with Big E.
These releases weren't even planned in advance imo.
I always thought Braun was a prized big man to Vince McMahon, no matter how he was booked. He was so hot at one point, particularly during the feud with Roman.— Alex McCarthy (@AlexM_talkSPORT) June 2, 2021
Stunned by that one.
Braun Strowman beat Goldberg at last year’s WrestleMania to become Universal Champion. He fought and beat Shane McMahon in a steel cage match at this year’s Mania and was in a WWE Title match on PPV last month. WHAT HAPPENED!?— Wrestling Travel (@WrestlingTravel) June 2, 2021
- Braun was in a WWE title match the other week— Daniel Ball - Wrestling 🎙 (@danielballpod) June 2, 2021
- Black returned two weeks ago in a main event angle
Can we please put to bed these thoughts that WWE book weeks in advance. What an absolute MESS.
Never forget when Evil Uno made a post about supporting indie wrestling when the pandemic first started. Then Braun Strowman replied by telling indie wrestlers to quit complaining and get a job, during a pandemic.— TranquiloClubYT (@TranquiloClubYT) June 2, 2021
