Stay tuned to WrestlingNewsWorld.com for the latest developments.

  • Mike Brailsford

    Alex Riley the only surprise I feel.

  • Wrestling Fan 4 Life

    Wasn’t Alex Riley supposed to be fed to Shinsuke Nakamura next week?

    • Iam Hereforgames

      they were feeding Bull Dempsey to people a month after his release

  • Dave Barton

    All these releases, just so they can afford Ryback’s new contract…


    • I really hope you’re kidding. He doesn’t get it. I’m fairly certain he’s gonna be gone too.

      • Dave Barton

        Well of course I am, don’t be ree-deek-oh-loss…that’s why I added the j/k at the end.

        • A thousand points for the “Perfect Strangers” reference. LOL!

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    Well Cameron is no big shocker. Bye Girl

  • Patrick

    ironic hornswoggle is let go the same day he debuted in WWE. 10 years ago.

  • Dirty Dutch should be on creative.

    • bearone7777

      KING—–D.D.—-Most likely did not give a rats a– about being released!! He can go spend some quality time with his grand-kids now!! As far as that goes Santino-(??)–Has not been on air for a long time soooo?????

  • DM

    Hornswoggle… this shock the main event scene! haha

  • I hate that they let Alex go. He never really got a shot. He was put on commentating duty and didn’t like it so he lobbied to get back to the ring. He gets there and instantly gets injured. He’d just recovered and cut a promo about working with Shinsuke and now it’s over. Sucks for him.

    Beyond that, no big shocks at all. It appears Cameron knew she was done. That whole “I’m down with Ryback” thing wasn’t so brave after all, huh?


      I always thought that Riley had the look, body shape, skills & talking ability to go all the way & become a top guy. But I gues when U have Cena forcing an agenda against U, U are doomed.

      • This isn’t Cena’s fault. Cena is also not to blame for the stock market crash a few years ago nor for the big, fluffy clouds currently dropping rain over my house. He’s not to blame for inflation or the accelerated rotation of the Earth. He didn’t kill Prince or David Bowie either. Not everything can be Cena’s fault.

        • Terra Ryzing

          I heard Cena made Ebola.


          Problems between Cena & Riley are well known. U can search on net & find may links yourself.

  • In a report from Cageside Seats released 30 minutes ago, Damien Sandow has also been let go. Total and complete travesty!!

  • Pedro Moreno Pacheco

    Hornswoggle and el torito released. definitively not gonna miss them. Cameron after she did that blog im not surprised. Santino im surprised he was still in the wwe. Riley was somewhat interesting in NXT. Barret we kenew he was going out. Zeb colter i guess they can call him again.
    Now Sandow was a waste of a great talent. But lets be honest here. He was in limbo for a year and in the last weeks he apeared in small cameos or to job in squash matches. WWE didnt have anything for him and if he wasnt released he would be the new zack ryder stuck in limbo waiting until they need someone for a squash match. Now that he is released he can go anywere and become a better character. evolve beyong silly comedy gimmicks and use his true potential. wwe releasing Sandow can be the best thing in his carreer.

    • Ray

      Totally agree. I would add that A-Ry could have been a draw if they wouldn’t have mishandled him and Sandow the same…

  • Pedro Moreno Pacheco

    on another note adam rose is not there. i guess they made a deal and thats why he took those tweets off.

  • kyleferretti

    I’m hearing Sandow now too??

    • Pedro Moreno Pacheco

      yes he was released too

  • Terra Ryzing

    Sandow. What a waste. The guy was super over. Can’t wait to hear the shoot interview. Riley’s too.

    • Yep. Cage side reported it 2 hours ago. No clue why it’s not here. That’s big news.

  • Mandy

    I was fine with the releases until I read about Sandow, really WWE?! Sandow is one of the most over guys in WWE, he has the talent and the potential yet WWE screwed him over. Sandow is trending on Twitter, many are upset he was among the talent released.

    • Stupidest release maybe ever. Shame on WWE. I agree with every syllable you typed.

    • Terra Ryzing

      Hopefully Sandow will get an interview on one of the podcasts so we can maybe get some answers. Usually the releases aren’t surprises but this ones a head scratcher. You’d think they’d cut the Ascension before Sandow.

  • Pedro Moreno Pacheco

    anyone bets we will get sandow chants in raw?

    • I hope so. They can chant it all they want for all I care. Remarkably stupid move on their part.
