WWE announced the release of six wrestlers on Wednesday, and there were some very recognizable superstars on the list.

Among the releases were former universal and intercontinental champion Braun Strowman and Aleister Black, who returned to WWE just two weeks ago on May 21.

The full list included Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Murphy, Ruby Riott, and Santana Garrett.

“WWE has come to terms on the releases of Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Murphy, Ruby Riott, and Santana Garrett,” a release from WWE said. “WWE wishes them the best in all of their future endeavors.”

After the announcement, Aleister Black expressed his shock by the news.

“Im gathering my thoughts as this was a complete left field for me as obviously we just started the dark father character but this was it, thank you so much WWE universe for allowing me to create and give you small bits of myself,” he wrote on Twitter.

No official reason was given for their releases.
