WWE is planning to bring back two members of the Hit Row group, according to a report. 

PW Insider reports that AJ "Top Dolla" Francis and Ashonte "Thee" Adonis are planned to be at Friday's SmackDown taping in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

Top Dolla and Ashonte Adonis would be the latest WWE talent released by the former regime to be brought back by new executive vice president of talent relations Paul "Triple H" Levesque, joining Dakota Kai, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, and Dexter Lumis. 

As part of the Hit Row stable, Top Dolla and Ashonte Adonis were drafted to SmackDown in the WWE Draft along with B-Fab and Isaiah "Swerve" Scott on October 1, 2021. B-Fab was released by the company on November 4, 2021, while Top Dolla, Adonis, and Scott were released on November 18, 2021. 

Prior to their main roster call-up, Hit Row operated as a stable in NXT, debuting as a foursome in May 2021.

Scott has since signed with AEW and is one half of the company's World Tag Team Champions, along with Keith Lee.
