• A Recently Released Wrestler Could Make An Appearance On Tonight’s RAW
As we know, WWE released over 45 wrestlers last week to make budget cuts due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Many wrestlers have come out to share the stories about their release, and how much of a tough time this is for them.
Fans are behind many wrestlers who were never expected to he released by the company, like Drake Maverick, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Zack Ryder and Heath Slater.
It looks like WWE has rehired one of the wrestlers who was released last Wednesday, as Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that one recently released wrestler could show up on RAW tonight:
“Hearing it’s possible that one of the wrestlers who was released from WWE last week could be making an appearance on RAW tonight.”
