– WWE announced Friday that they had come to terms on the release of David Hart Smith, who Executive Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis once deemed a future WrestleMania main eventer. The third generation talent revealed that he is returning to Japan, where he competed prior to joining the sports entertainment promotion in 2006.
“Yup, Japan here I come! No more WWE, had a great time tho.” Smith wrote on his Facebook page.
His mother, Diana Smith, stated in April that David had plans to cross over to mixed martial arts.
– Tough Enough contestant Martin Casaus, who was forced by injury to withdraw from the competition near its conclusion, was spotted buying a ticket to last night’s Raw live event at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah. Furthermore, an independent wrestling promotion he co-owns, UCW-Zero, was handing out fliers promoting upcoming events, including his return match from the ankle injury he suffered while competing on Tough Enough.
