Welcome back. There have been a lot of wrestlers released from WWE over the last year and a half. Those moves have changed the way the wrestling world works and that is not likely to be changing anytime soon. That makes for some rather interesting changes as other promotions are able to pick up some of the wrestlers here and there. That seems to be the case in triplicate this time around.

Three recently released WWE wrestlers made appearances of some sort over the weekend. First, Taya Valkyrie, formerly known as Frankie Monet in NXT, appeared at AAA TripleMania and said that she was coming for Deonna Purrazzo Reina de Reinas Title. Also, former Universal Champion Braun Strowman, wrestling under his real name of Adam Scherr, appeared at GLCW Blizzard Brawl. The event was a charity show for the victims of the Waukesha, Wisconsin parade. Finally, Scarlett Bordeaux appeared at an MCW Pro Wrestling event, interfering in a match and attacking King McBride.

These were some cool moments. Check out the three returns:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can make for some amazing moments, as seeing these wrestlers getting back in the ring, or at least at a show, for the first time since being released is special. It makes the WWE releases sting a bit less, as getting to be back in some other promotions is always worth a shot. I’m curious to see who goes where and that is a nice feeling to have.

What did you think of the appearances? Who has the brightest future of the three? Let us know in the comments below.
