Twitter unhappy over Samoa Joe and others getting released

Fans were either shocked or frustrated with WWE for releasing ten WWE Superstars. The worst part is, the releases are more of a salt in the wound situation. Fans didn’t hold back on expressing themselves. A Twitter user cited how the infamous CM Punk ‘pipebomb’ makes sense even today.

Another Twitter user showed a visual representation that resonated with us too! When WWE removed Samoa Joe from the Raw Commentary Team, everyone believed Joe is preparing for an in-ring return. Sadly, the complete opposite happened.

Honestly, Samoa Joe’s release comes as the biggest surprise. The ‘Samoan Submission Machine’ had been out of action due to concussion for the entire 2020. He joined the Raw Commentary team and fit in perfectly. A veteran like Joe would be an asset for any company, and WWE has made a enormous mistake letting him go.
