In recent months, the WWE has lost numerous great talents from its rosters, with a policy of "budget-cutting" that has in fact led the top executives of the Stamford federation to do without dozens and dozens of wrestlers as well as hundreds of other backstage members, office employees, but also managers and disparate road agents.
Among the many released, WWE has also done without prominent personalities who until a few months ago were fighting weekly in front of the cameras of Friday Night Smackdown or Monday Night Raw, such as Braun Strowman, Lana, Nia Jax, Bray Wyatt, Aleister Black and so on and so forth.
In fact, due to the global pandemic, WWE has started a vicious circle of layoffs and requests for release from the same athletes, which seems to have no end, with the latest wave that has instead hit NXT, killing all the staff.
more faithful to Triple H, from Samoa Joe to Road Dogg, through William Regal. The Virtuosa delivered well on her promise as she went on to beat Rok-C on the latest episode of IMPACT Wrestling to win the ROH title and become a double champion.
It will be interesting to see if she gets to compete for the Knockouts title again anytime soon.
What happened at IMPACT Wrestling?
One of the first fired by WWE, even before the plight of the global pandemic broke out, is Konnor, a former member of WWE's Ascension, a team that seemed to have a great future in the company's rings, since their debut in that of NXT.
After a formidable first stint, which had led Konnor and Viktor to win the tag team titles of the yellow and black brand of the McMahon company, the two had been moved to the main roster, where their star slowly faded, until they were real jobbers, to be included in the lowest matches of the company's card.
After months spent between various independent companies, in the latest episode of IMPACT, Konnor reappeared with a new name on the screens of IMPACT Wrestling, in the tapes of the next tapings of the next few weeks, with Big Kon, the new current ring name of the athlete, who had a match against Eddie Edwards, who lost to the former WWE wrestler.
It is not known at the moment if the former giant of the McMahon company has signed a long-term contract with IMPACT Wrestling, but the fact of seeing him in the company's rings, in some tapings recorded, bodes well for him and his future.
In the coming weeks, we will certainly have new news regarding this debut, above all, we will know if it was a single one night only match or if the athlete will represent in front of the federation cameras.
