Top Dolla and Ashante “Thee” Adonis Talk About Hit Row’s WWE Debut and When They First Heard About It
When WWE released all of Hit Row, which at the time included Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Ashante “Thee” Adonis, and Top Dolla, it shocked a lot of fans.
Despite just signing a new contract with WWE, the group had already lost one of its members when B-Fab was abruptly released.
Hit Row had only recently been promoted from NXT to SmackDown, so their sudden release came as a bit of a shock.
Top Dolla and Ashante both had WWE Hall of Famers reach out to them after their releases, according to an appearance on the Busted Open podcast.
“I mean, to be honest, we know we’re talented and that our release is simply a result of circumstance.”
“We couldn’t have done much more to prove we belonged,” Top Dolla said.
“I know I did something right when WWE Hall of Famers are the first people to reach out to me after I’m released and say, ‘Man, I have no idea what they’re doing.'”
Many people approached me, including WWE Hall of Famers.
I was contacted by a number of people in WWE.
“I’m in a good mood,” Ashante said.
“I’m still shocked and stuff, but I’m okay.”
I’m in a great frame of mind about everything, and I can’t wait to get started on the next chapter.”
They admit to being surprised after a meeting at WWE headquarters about what was coming, including action figures and a DLC appearance in WWE 2K22, but it wasn’t long before Top Dolla saw the writing on the wall, as things started to happen that mirrored what happened to B-Fab.
“Thursday morning was a little strange because we were booked for SmackDown, Survivor Series, and Raw, and then we weren’t,” Ashante explained.
“Then they rebooked us, and then they unbooked us.”
So I was like, ‘Okay, it’s what happens in WWE; there’s a lot to figure out.’ So I was like, ‘Okay, maybe they’ll have something for us on Friday or Saturday.’ I remember missing the call from John because I was watching Thursday Night Football…
