Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
WWE Releases, Territories & More
June 4, 2021
Welcome to the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. If you have questions, I’ll provide the answers. Are you ready? Let’s do this.
If you could bring back one promotion/territory which one would it be and why?
The Mid-Atlantic region, consisting of the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. I know that technically, Florida and Georgia weren’t part of the Mid-Atlantic region at first, but there was a lot of cross-promotion back in the days and for a while, Ole Anderson was booking both Georgia and The Carolinas at the same time and both areas were on fire and doing phenomenal business so I’ll combine the entire south-east. Right now, the NC Independent scene has some of the best talents not signed to a major company and all they need is an opportunity and the world would never be the same again. I’m talking AC/DC, Sammy Love, The Fallen Artist, The Monster, and so many others. The Carolinas have a reputation for creating the best wrestlers and I’d gladly rebuild the Mid-Atlantic region if I could to just show the world and prove it.
Who was the best Referee in wrestling history?
There are many good ones out there, but for me, when I think wrestling referees, the name that always comes to mind first is Tommy Young.
So if the recently ‘retired’ Ryback and the recently ‘fired’ Braun Strowman were to form a tag team, what names are you picking?

WWE released Lana, Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Murphy, Ruby Riott, and Santana Garrett on Wednesday afternoon. Thoughts?
I don’t know what Vince is smoking, but these releases were some shockers and extremely hard to understand. I get why Black was fired, most likely due to his relationship with Zelina Vega. I guess the chances of her coming back are dead now. Lana’s release is most likely due to her marriage to Miro, aka Rusev in a previous WWE life. I don’t get it with Ruby Riott or Murphy though. These two are so damn good and WWE never seemed to try and do anything with either of them. It baffles the mind. Santana Garrett is one I’m not too familiar with, but I’ve heard so many good things about her, it just doesn’t make any sense. I guess the bottom line is that no one is safe in WWE anymore.
Do you think WWE will be releasing any more talents in the near future and if so, who?
Off the top of my head, I think Jeff Hardy, Bray Wyatt, Austin Theory, Erik, Ivar, Dana Brooke & Riddick Moss might all want to mind their P’s and Q’s and update their contacts list and make sure that all their information for possible future bookings is current.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, questions, and any thoughts are welcome and I want to hear them. My thanks for reading. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
