And now for the reaction. The biggest wrestling story of the week has been the releases of more than a dozen WWE and NXT wrestlers. This was another surprise batch of releases and several names were rather unexpected. The releases have shaken up WWE again and it seems that the rest of the wrestling industry is feeling it as well. Now we know some thoughts on the releases.

Following the announcements, several wrestlers have spoken about the wrestlers being let go. This includes some of the released wrestlers themselves, as well as other names from around the wrestling industry. The majority of the reactions have been negative, with wrestlers voicing displeasure at WWE for releasing even more wrestlers on such short notice. It is not clear if more releases are expected.

There was a lot to get through here. Check out one other reaction, plus some of the wrestlers in action:

Opinion: I can’t blame anyone for being annoyed at being released, but I do like Oney Lorcan’s response. He wasn’t happy with being let go, but he thanked WWE for the biggest run of his career and sounded grateful. Lorcan got a chance, lasted six years, which is longer than a lot of people do, and then was let go. There are far worse runs to have in WWE and it’s nice to see someone say something close to thank you for the opportunity and then move on.

What do you think of the releases? Where do you want these wrestlers to go? Let us know in the comments below.
