A lot of WWE Raw/Smackdown superstars were let go from the company over the time span of the last couple of years. This allowed the rival brands of the company to pick up some of those names and include some star powers in their shows. Mostly, All Elite Wrestling had picked up those released talents while ROH, Impact had also signed a few of them.

Independent circuit has also been utilizing those talents as multiple former WWE Raw/Smackdown/NXT superstars have now been confirmed to appear at WrestleCon 2022. Former WWE Universal Champion Windham Rotunda (fka WWE’s Bray Wyatt) was the first one to be announced for the convention.
