“Yooooo F**KKKKK them.
Stop supporting a company that has ZERO respect for their talent. You love pro wrestling, spend your money on the hundreds of other alternatives.
This is wrong. Ethically, as employers they don’t care about us. Talent or fans.

Below is the list of wrestlers that got released today:
– John Morrison
– Top Dolla (Hit Row)
– Isaiah Swerve Scott (Hit Row)
