B-Fab recently gave an update on her WWE no-compete clause while discussing her and Hit Row’s WWE release. B-Fab was released from her WWE contract as part of the early November budget cuts, with the rest of Hit Row following on November 18th. B-Fab discussed the situation during a recent virtual signing for K&S WrestleFest, and you can see some highlights below (per Fightful):

On the status of Hit Row’s non-compete clauses: “They still have some time left on their contracts. (I was on) 30 days, (they were on) 90 days. All three, for sure.”

On why she was released: “I have no clue at all. They released me along with 18 other people. The thing that they said was budget cuts, that’s the most detail I know. There was really no reason. They were saying that the boys were deemed to be okay without me because they could all talk. I really wasn’t a manager because I was going to be wrestling, I just hadn’t been doing it yet. They could all talk so [WWE] felt like, why do they need me? They’ve had Shield and New Day and most guys do well, so they probably felt ‘they will be fine without her because other groups have survived.”

On the group’s move from NXT to Smackdown: “It goes along with the disconnect from NXT and the main roster. If you’re paying attention to NXT like our fans were, they saw how we impacted the field as a unit. They got to see us every week and knew how we worked together and gelled and they loved to see it. Maybe the main roster didn’t see everything we did and only saw a few things. I feel like the disconnect was always there between NXT and the main roster, they don’t really know what’s going on in NXT always to fully understand an act when it goes to the main roster. If you saw us in NXT, you would have known we were perfectly fine as a unit.”

On the online theory that Hit Row’s release was a message to Triple H: “I did hear a little bit about that online about [the McMahons] having family issues right now. I don’t know if that’s exactly what led to our release or why they did what they did and how they did it. I truly don’t put anything past anyone or any company or business. It could be something as spiteful as ‘this is your thing, you like this, I’m going to get rid of you guys.'”

On reports that Top Dolla ‘rubbed people the wrong way’: “Here’s the thing, people will always say anything to make sense of when things happen even if it’s not true or they don’t know the details. Things like that. AJ is an amazing guy and is so smart. A huge wrestling fan, knows his stuff, very dedicated to the whole group. We had a lot of idea for the group. AJ is a professional and a huge fan. people just say tings because they want to make sense about what happened, especially something unfortunate as this.”
