WWE releases several superstars

Several superstars have come to terms on their release with the WWE today. We’ve seen many talents over the past year talk about how they feel that they’re not being used properly in the company, and in the past month, a handful of them have openly requested their release.



Hideo Itami thanked the WWE, co-workers, and fans for their support a month back. He wrestled his final match with the company on the 205 Live after the Royal Rumble and has now officially been released from the company.

A few days ago, Tye Dillinger took to Instagram to announce that he had asked for his release from the WWE. He thanked the company for the past five years but felt that this was the best decision he could make for his career. He also thanked the men and women that he worked with over the years and the production/ring crew. WWE made the official announcement today.

Another superstar frustrated with his placement on the card has been former Cruiserweight Champion and the winner of the Cruiserweight Classic, TJP. With the launch of 205 Live, it looked like the company was going to focus the division around Perkins. However, after losing the championship, he quickly dropped to the bottom of the card.

A heel turn would help earn him a few shots at the title down the line, but he never regained the title or a top spot on cruiserweight brand. After months of venting his frustration on Twitter, it seems he may have gotten what he wanted. WWE has officially announced his release today.

These aren’t the only talents to have been released today, as WWE already announced the departure of Arn Anderson today.
