- We noted before that Ricardo Rodriguez asked for his WWE release as he had been frustrated and wanted to be a wrestler.
Ricardo had been wrestling as El Local with Kalisto in NXT but when he got injured, Sin Cara was given the spot with Kalisto.
There were also issues with Ricardo’s physique not being up to WWE’s standards. They reportedly set a weight goal that they wanted him at and in their mind, he was having trouble keeping to it.
Rodriguez was working under both a talent contract and an announcers contract. When he was released, his talent contract had just two weeks left on it. He had been doing some Spanish language broadcasts but with budget cuts ongoing, a three-man Spanish broadcast team was too much.
