WWE Releases Three Superstars and One Legend…
World Wrestling Entertainment is officially coming to terms on the release of three WWE Superstars and one backstage official. It’s very common this time of year for Vince’s house of wrestling to let go of some talent.
However, this instance is curious, because two of these men asked for their respective releases from the company.
TJP is the first Cruiserweight champion of the new revamp of the cruiserweight division. That being said, it’s a little surprising to see him leaving the company.
He isn’t giving a specific reason for his release, but we can only give TJP the best of wishes in his future pursuits in professional wrestling.
Thanks for giving me a chance and letting me play for the team I grew up watching 🙏💙❤️💛 https://t.co/r7001mqjx2

Hideo Itami requested his release earlier this year. Many sources claim Itami is unhappy with the way his character is developing on 205 Live and that’s the main reason he’s asking for his release.
It was confirmed today that Hideo Itami is no longer under contract.

Just a few days ago, Tye Dillinger took to Twitter to announce that he is asking for his release from WWE. He states there are no hard feelings between him and other talent/officials within the company. WWE is announcing his release today, alongside TJP and Hideo Itami.

Not a lot of people knew Arn Anderson is still under contract. Along with the other three previously mentioned, one of the original Four Horsemen is being released.
No reason is being given as to why Arn Anderson is being let go, but we do wish him the best in whatever he chooses to pursue next.
