I honestly don't even know who WWE is for anymore. Look at the people they released - Black, Braun, Joe, Murphy - a range of guys you should be able to make stars of for different reasons.

Braun Strowman was just in a WWE Championship match having wrestled Shane McMahon at WrestleMania.
Aleister Black just returned with some of the most well-produced vignettes we’ve seen in recent years.
