It looked shocking to hear that Hit Row got released by WWE. This was mainly because just a month prior to their release, Hit Row became a part of the main roster. Hit Row got picked by the blue brand of WWE in the third round on Night One of the WWE Draft 2021.

Recently, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott took to Twitter to reveal an interesting stat about Hit Row. He revealed that Hit Row generated $2 million together in NXT. The stable performed mainly in NXT. Even though the stable got drafted to WWE SmackDown, they did not wrestle any match on the blue brand.

The stable was formed in May on NXT following Isaiah “Swerve” Scott’s match against Leon Ruff. He even defeated Bronson Reed to claim the NXT North American Championship. Did you want Hit Row to wrestle on the main roster?
