JONAH On WWE Release: I Was Waiting For A Call To Be Moved To Raw Or Smackdown

JONAH, formerly known as Bronson Reed, was apart of a group of WWE releases on August 6th, 2021. The 33-year old had won the NXT North American Championship just months prior to his release, and had even competed in a dark match at a Smackdown taping in June.

When speaking with Sami Callihan on Callihan Uncensored, Jonah noted that he was expecting a different call around the time he was released.

"Yeah, it’s crazy to me. I had some of the biggest names in the business contacting me after and they were scratching their heads. It just seemed like it came out of left field, and I was actually waiting for a call to be moved to Raw or Smackdown and then I got released.. so, very shocking to me. But as you said, it was like a weight was lifted off my own shoulders. I sort of feel like the shackles are off for a lack of a better term. I can do what I want to do and I’m very lucky to have companies like IMPACT Wrestling that have sort of nurtured that as well."

JONAH has made IMPACT Wrestling his main home since his WWE departure. After attacking Josh Alexander in his company debut at Turning Point, JONAH has gone on to face the likes of PCO, Black Taurus, and Jake Something.

In addition to his IMPACT run, JONAH has also made appearances in NJPW Strong, PWG, and DEFY Wrestling.
