WWE has been at the receiving end of a lot of release requests with Sin Cara being the latest name. The company has been reluctant to grant the releases with the fear of the released stars potentially jumping ship to AEW.
As noted on Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Sin Cara is opting to join the Combate Americas MMA where former WWE star Alberto Del Rio serves as an executive and also a fighter.
Other names include Luke Harper and Mike Kanellis. Harper has to serve a few more months to make up for the time he was out injured meanwhile Kanellis is expected to sit out the rest of his contract while accepting offers for speaking appearances.
The company is expected to grant releases to the wrestlers who will not appear in the AEW with Sin Cara w=being one of the few names.
