The pro wrestling world did not see this coming.
WWE announced the releases of six wrestlers on Wednesday. The biggest surprise on the list is Braun Strowman - who was carrying the Universal Championship less than a year ago.
Also released...Aleister Black...Lana...Murphy...Ruby Riott...and Santana Garrett.
