Braun Strowman and Lana’s last appearances

The Monster Among Men was a part of WrestleMania Backlash. He was in a triple threat match against WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.

Even though he lost that match, Strowman showed huge strength and massive skills during the match.

Prior to that, Strowman had a match against Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 37. This was an insane match, and Strowman absolutely destroyed McMahon.

It’s shocking that WWE released a talent like Braun Strowman, even though he was working with the top Superstars on the main roster. Unfortunately, this will not be the first time the company has released Superstars who were talented.

Coming to Lana, she was working alongside Naomi for the Tag Team titles. She too was a part of WrestleMania 37, and it’s unbelievable that the company is releasing a Superstar who worked hard to make her name.

Maybe it’s time for her to join her husband, Miro, at AEW!

Aleister Black made a huge comeback

Recently, Black made a WWE comeback, and he returned with a stunning physique. The fat was gone, the muscle was added, and he was ready to be a top Superstar.

In fact, the time he was working hard to transform his body, many thought he had been released. However, when he returned, the WWE Universe was positive that something exciting was coming their way. It’s regrettable that Black got released and WWE did not utilize the talent as everyone expected them to.

Buddy Murphy could have been a top Superstar

Murphy has played a huge role at WWE Raw during his storyline alongside Seth Rollins against The Mysterio Family.

In fact, he was a major factor in the storyline considering he switched sides midway as he got romantically involved with Rey Mysterio’s daughter, Aalyah Mysterio.
