WWE News – Strowman, Black Requests WWE: WWE’s 90-day non-compete clause is causing pain in the eye for many released WWE superstars including Braun Strowman & Aleister Black. The recent round of WWE releases took place on June 2 when Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Santana Garrett, Lana, Ruby Riott, and Buddy Murphy got released. These releases typically come under the 90-day non-compete clause as per the WWE Contracts. This means the released superstar can not work for any other promotion company during the window. The superstars get paid between the 90-day window, but some are not willing to go with this deal. Most of the released stars have humbly requested WWE to forgo non-compete clause and let them work for other promotions.
