Can you blame them? The biggest story this week in the wrestling world has been the string of releases from WWE, with ten people being let go from the company. This is quite the shakeup and will be something that is going to change the way the wrestling playing field works for the next few months. It is going to mean a lot to have wrestlers leave the company, but how are they feeling about being let go?

One of the more interesting things about something like this is seeing how the reactions go. Some wrestlers will panic and get upset and angry at the company, while others are much more subdued. Both reactions make sense, though it can be almost fascinating to see who reacts which way. Now that a little more than a day has passed, we know a bit more about who reacted how.

Following their departures from the company, several of the released wrestlers have issued statements via Twitter about their time with WWE. Some of them are more positive than others, though most of them include the wrestlers thanking the other members of the roster as well as thanking WWE for giving them a chance. Here are some of the responses from the released wrestlers, including a series from Tucker:

There are some rather strong opinions in there. Check out some of the wrestlers who said them:

Kayden Carter vs. Chelsea Green: WWE NXT, Feb. 19, 2020

Ricochet vs. Tucker: Raw, Nov. 2, 2020

The IIconics’ defining tag team moments: WWE Playlist

FULL MATCH - Finn Bálor vs. Samoa Joe - NXT Championship Match: NXT TakeOver: London

Opinion: This is always kind of interesting to see as you are going to get quite the mixture of responses. I can’t blame anyone for being upset over being gone, but even some of the bigger surprises are taking this well. You can also easily see why someone would be upset if they were never given much of a chance in the first place. It was quite the shakeup and the responses make a lot of sense of their own.
