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 has released three talents from its developmental division NXT including stars of the Mae Young Classic tournament.

Abby Laith, aka ex-Chikara Grand champion Kimber Lee, and Sage Beckett, formerly known as Rosie Lottalove in Impact Wrestling, were both let go.

Laith, 27, signed with the company in January last year and reached the quarter finals of the Mae Young Classic in July, losing to Mercedes Martinez.

However, she failed to impress in her three matches and Laith, real name Kimberly Frankele, from Seattle, Washington, was rarely used on NXT TV.

She tweeted: “Dear @WWENXT and @WWE ….. Thank You. Thank you for all the opportunities you gave me in the last year.

“Thank you for everything I was taught and I wouldn’t trade that chapter of my life for anything. Now my path may be changing, but the Crown Jewel is still very much alive.”

Beckett appeared on NXT live events, managing Lana early on, and was featured in the first round of the Mae Young Classic, losing to Bianca Belair.

The 33-year-old, real name MaryKate Duignan Glidewell, from Ruskin, Florida, also signed with WWE in January last year.

She tweeted after her release to say: “I’ve given my body for 13 years, now it’s time to use my brain.”

Chinese man mountain Gu Guangming, a 6ft 8in bruiser signed alongside a number of his compatriots in 2016, has also been cut from the roster.

Guangming started appearing at NXT live events last year under the name Ming as an enforcer for Kona Reeves, but also never made it to television.

The 25-year-old, from Mudanjiang, China, previously competed in amateur boxing and represented his country in the super-heavyweight division.

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