The WWE CEO Vince McMahon is angry again, this time taking down quite a number of stars and chances are that more stars will go down in the days ahead.

Abbey Laith – who prior to signing with WWE wrestled for Chikara and elsewhere as Kimber Lee – was released from the company’s developmental system, along with two other wrestlers.

Today, she’s issued a statement on Twitter thanking the company:

And she’s already back to work, announcing an appearance back in her old Philadelphia stomping grounds!

While they’re still not as plentiful as they are for men, there’s definitely more opportunities for women on the independents than ever, and Laith (real name Kimberly Frankele) has proven she can work with anyone. Now that she has some more name recognition from her time in The ‘E, she should be even more in demand.

Keep an eye out for Abbey’s next moves. Maybe she’ll show up on Impact for a Kimber Bombs reunion with Allie?

WWE decided to part ways with Mae Young Classic (MYC) competitor Abbey Laith, multiple sources have confirmed the releases of two other wrestlers from the company’s developmental program.

The departure of Sage Beckett, a Dudley Boyz trainee who previously worked on the independents as Andrea and in TNA as Rosie Lottalove, was reported by Squared Circle Sirens and Pro Wrestling Sheet.


Like Laith, Beckett competed in last summer’s WWE Network tournament series but despite working house shows with Lana for a while before the MYC, never made it to NXT television. Her release comes a little more than a year after her Jan. 2017 signing.

Gu Guangming, a signee from WWE’s first ever tryouts in China in 2016, was also let go, according to Wrestling Observer. The 6’8” amateuring boxing standout appeared on a few live events with Kona Reeves under the name “Ming”, but also never appeared on screen.

WWE doesn’t comment on releases from developmental, but Laith and Beckett have both posted to social media with statements that indicate they’re on to the next phases of their lives and careers:


Best wishes to all three, and we’ll keep you posted on any additional roster moves down at the Performance Center.
