Nia Jax, Keith Lee and Karrion Kross are among the several Superstars who have been released from the company. WWE continues restricting their operations leading to numerous Superstars being released from the company once again. Surprisingly, among the 17 released Superstars, a couple of them are former Champions.
Karrion Kross who was one of the most dominant Superstars on NXT, was recently moved to the main roster. His real-life partner Scarlett Bordeaux, who used to be his on-screen manager on NXT, went missing from the main roster. They were one of the most interesting pair on the roster. WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley mentioned that WWE missed out on the hottest acts in the business.
“So Karrion Kross and Scarlett Bordeaux get to be a duo again – and whoever picks them up has one of the hottest acts in the biz. Unfortunately, it seems WWE is sometimes intent on trying to reinvent the wheel” – tweet Foley.
Keith Lee is also a former NXT Champion. He was recently repackaged and introduced as “Bearcat” Lee. It seemed like WWE had big plans for him and his release came as the biggest shock. His real-life partner, Mia Yim, who is a former RETRIBUTION member, was also released from the company.

Nia Jax was reportedly released because she was unvaccinated
Former Raw Women’s Champion Nia Jax was reportedly released from the company because she vocal about not supporting the Covid-19 vaccine. WWE was really adamant about getting all their employees and talents vaccinated – keeping in mind everyone’s well-being. But Jax decision on remaining unvaccinated led to her release from the company.
Nia Jax was last seen on Raw, when she was brutally attacked by her Tag Team partner Shayna Baszler. In the segment it seemed like Baszler has broken Jax’s arm. With over a dozen releases it would be interesting to see that which talent gets signed by AEW and Impact.
