So exactly one year to the date after WWE's early-days-of-the-pandemic-mass releases and just months after NBCUniversalComcastEtc backed up the Peacock money truck...

"WWE has come to terms on the release of Samoa Joe, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Tucker, Kalisto, Bo Dallas and Wesley Blake"


A friend & I theorized that Samoa Joe might've been unhappy that they wouldn't let him back in the ring due to concussion protocol reasons, so he wanted to take his brain and hurt it elsewhere.

Breaking up the IIconics and then realizing they don't have enough women's tag teams = a terrible idea... releasing them, an even worse one.

Green was injured and never really got a shot unfortunately.

They already tried to make Mickie an "Alumni" when she didn't want to in the past year.

And Bo Dallas hadn't been on TV once in almost a year and a half.



...and as multiple people have pointed out, Velveteen Dream, Matt Riddle and Jordan Devlin are still drawing a paycheck.

Don't we need a "Predictions" section for this?

I say ...
-- Mickie James to AEW (they know how to leverage their senpais)
-- Samoa Joe to Impact
-- Bo Dallas & Mojo Rawley to tryouts for NJPW LA Dojo (where they'll fade back away to the indies)

(Meanwhile, on a completely different topic: Did I see that Taya Valkyrie actually signed with WWE, to be relegated to NXT? Ah, what women will do to be with their hubbies. That can't have been an inexpensive acquisition for WWE, relatively speaking.)

I wouldn't say that, because...

...that's why I'd expect her to go to NWA. Saying they need everyone they can get is putting it mildly, then she gets to work with her husband... although as we've seen with Thunder Rosa, that doesn't preclude her from working in AEW.

Also Mickie James:


The money feud is getting The IIconics over to Impact to fight Fire and Flava. I want it so bad.

I think:
Samoa Joe to AEW
Mickie James to NWA
Kalisto to Mexico
Chelsea Green to Impact
Mojo to New Japan
Tucker, Blake and Dallas to your local high school/bingo parlor/Polish social hall



It's the most important meal of the day.

The Iconics would definitely have the most to do in Impact. I could see them winding up in AEW because of Shawn Spears, but honestly, they'd be wasted in that half-division. Especially considering that, while they're great in the ring, where they really shine is on the mic, and ladies almost never get mic time in AEW.

Joe's the real head-scratcher. He's still got some good matches left in the tank, but he's old enough and beat up enough that I'd be hesitant to sign him to anything long-term. AEW seems the most likely spot, considering Matt Hardy, Christian, Paul Wight, Sting, Tully Blanchard, Arn Anderson - you know, I think you all probably get the point.

The funny thing is Molly WAS sweet and innocent before the make over. She looked moreso then than now. I don't have a crush on the new Molly Holly.
