SATURDAY NEWS UPDATE

WWE

  • Alexa Bliss reacted to the news that Bray Wyatt has been released by WWE: “I really am at a loss for words… thank you so much Windham for everything you’ve done for this company. The most fun I’ve had is working with you. Such an amazing talent & the most kind person. I’m just in shock.”
  • Adam Scherr (formerly known as Braun Strowman in WWE) tweeted a picture of him and Wyatt from last year and wrote: “Brother I’m waiting!!!!!!”
  • Mickie James tweeted about Wyatt’s release: “I think what you meant to say was: ‘Thank you so much for coming up with such an incredible gimmick(time & time again)one so cool & over, we really didn’t know how to book it right. So we just gave it to someone else so we can still make ALL the money off of it & let you go.’ This isn’t against Alexa. I love her. She’s an incredible performer who is killing it in a role she was given. She always does. We as artists take every role we’re given & turn it into gold. He, she, they both did that. Like it/not. Facts are facts. So sorry if that offends you.”

  • Bret Hart responded to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson praising him in an interview with Screen Rant: “I appreciate the kind words. I hold @therock and his family in very high regard and it’s been inspiring to watch his hard earned success in wrestling, Hollywood, and beyond.”
