The WWE developmental releases on Friday came as a complete surprise to everyone. Brandon Traven was tweeting about last night's NXT live event just four hours before he was tweeting about being released.
Russian Diva Anya, who has been out of action with an arm injury, noted that she's not giving up on professional wrestling. She re-tweeted this message from a fan:
"Kind of s--tty that they would release Anya while injured, but that's life, I suppose."
Derrick Bateman has already been announced to "return home" for the Absolute Intense Wrestling internet pay-per-view on June 30th from Cleveland, Ohio. He's appearing under his real name, Michael Hutter.
