All Released NXT Superstars By WWE In September 2023

9 months ago By Sports Desk

September 21, 2023, marked a somber day in the history of WWE, as several of its celebrated superstars were released. The wrestling community and fans alike reeled from the announcement, struggling to make sense of the decision, especially in light of recent lucrative deals WWE has landed.

In the world of professional wrestling, where athletes lay everything on the line both physically and emotionally, a release can have profound effects on the trajectory of a wrestler’s career. This is especially true in promotions as dominant as WWE, which has been home to most of these superstars for a considerable period. Their departure not only creates a vacuum in storylines and match cards but also impacts the psyche of other superstars backstage.

This announcement was particularly shocking for multiple reasons. The Stamford-based promotion, WWE, had recently entered into a new phase of its existence, having been acquired by Endeavor, an entertainment giant. Moreover, the reports of WWE clinching a billion-dollar deal with the USA Network gave the impression of financial stability and a promising future for its talents. Yet, the widespread belief that these releases were a result of “budget cuts” has left many in disbelief.

Diving into the details of the superstars now in search of new horizons:

  • Dolph Ziggler, a veteran of the industry, whose charisma and in-ring ability have entertained millions. His release was one of the most unexpected, considering his tenure and contributions to WWE.
  • Mustafa Ali has been a consistent performer, delivering compelling matches and promos, advocating for representation and inclusivity.
  • Elias, with his unique musician gimmick, has serenaded the WWE universe with both his songs and wrestling prowess for years.
  • Shelton Benjamin, a true technician in the ring, has been part of some of the most iconic moments in WWE history. His departure surely leaves a void in the locker room.
  • Rick Boogs and Riddick Moss, both having made a mark in NXT and showcasing their potential for the main roster, find themselves on this list.
  • The charismatic Emma and Aliyah have been part of memorable storylines in the women’s division.
  • AJ Francis, or “Top Dolla”, had an aura that resonated with the audience, making his release surprising to many.
  • Dana Brooke, an athlete who has shown resilience and determination in her WWE journey, will surely be missed.
  • Mansoor, representing the Middle East, has had a whirlwind journey from his debut in Saudi Arabia to his run in NXT.
  • The intimidating presences of Mace and Shanky added depth to WWE’s lineup of heavyweights.
  • Quincy Elliott, Bryson Montana, Yulisa Leon, Dabba-Kato, Kevin Ventura-Cortez, Alexis Gray, Daniel McArthur, and Ikemen Jiro – each brought something unique to the table, showcasing a blend of different wrestling styles, backgrounds, and characters.
  • Brooklyn Barlow, one of the latest additions to NXT, showed promise and potential in her short stint with the company.

While these releases are heartbreaking for both fans and the superstars, history has shown that wrestlers often find success and new avenues after departing from WWE. Companies around the world would surely be eager to sign such talents, knowing the experience and fanbase they bring with them.

The wrestling industry, though unpredictable, has always been about resilience, reinvention, and resurgence. As the news sinks in and the superstars prepare for the next chapter of their careers, the WWE universe will eagerly watch where they head next. Their journeys, inside or outside the squared circle, are far from over. And for the WWE, it remains to be seen how these decisions play out in the long run, both in terms of its business strategy and relationship with its global fanbase.
