A #1 iTunes Album

& To being my own younger brother (ZEKE)

while traveling the world..

It’s been a blast.

God is Good!”

Shelton Benjamin: “I have been released from my WWE contract. I thank WWE staff, talent, and of course the fans for everything. Something ends, something new begins. Looking forward to my next chapter.”

Riddick Moss: “Well I did it – I graduated from WWE. I know a lot of people think my career really took a downturn once Mr. Levesque (Triple H) took over, but, in actuality, my per match fee skyrocketed through the roof. Other promoters, get ready to back the brinks truck up.”

Mustafa Ali: “I am longer working with WWE. I look forward to the future. Thank you.”

Quincy Elliot: “No Longer with WWE. Let the Celebration Begin.”

Earlier today, when WWE announced that Elimination Chamber 2024 will take place in Perth, Australia, Emma (who is from Australia) was very happy and tweeted:

“A dream.”

After her release, she tweeted:

“Oops nevermind. I just got released… I am no longer with WWE.”
