AEW Drops Brian Kendrick 24 HOURS After WWE Release (VIDEO)

Andy H. Murray & Adam Wilbourn on Brian Kendrick, AEW, WWE, Shane McMahon & more!

Join WhatCulture's Adam Wilbourn & Andy H. Murray as they bring you Wednesday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

Today's video begins with the latest developments in the increasingly complicated Brian Kendrick saga. Released from WWE earlier in the week then booked for AEW Dynamite an hour later, his appearance on last night's show was cancelled when a series of harmful, dangerous conspiracies espoused by Kendrick in the past returned to public conversation (00:30).


From there, we circle back to Shane McMahon's WWE release (06:24), discussing the revelation that even Shane was unhappy about what happened at Royal Rumble 2022 - but not for the reasons you think.

It's onto last night's episode of Dynamite after that, as MJF becomes the first man to beat CM Punk in AEW, outdoing him in his Chicago hometown (10:31).


We close on Paige VanZant's return to the promotion for the first time since last summer (12:09).

As always, today's news video closes with your Twitter questions.
