WWE Releases...So Far



If you're not aware of the how and why, this article from Fightful will explain.

Even though releases are probably long overdue since WWE has absolutely been stockpiling talent for a while now, I didn't want to see them in this current environment.

For me personally, seeing Karl Anderson and Drake Maverick leave the company are the biggest losses.

That said, I absolutely hate it for all involved. Somehow I missed that Luke Gallows was also released.

It has been reported by Sean Ross Sapp at Fightful that Eric Young has also been released. Heath Slater is gone as well.

Follow Sean on Twitter (@SeanRossSapp) for the most up-to-date releases as I won't be at my computer all day today. Also Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens (@ifyouseekcasey) is an excellent resource and has shared that KURT ANGLE, Sarah Stock, and Aiden English have also been released.

The full text of the release announcement in the Tweet above is pasted below. (WWE has since updated the article so I am striking through this text. All these names are valid, but others have been added.
WWE has come to terms on the release of Drake Maverick (James Curtin), Curt Hawkins (Brian Myers), Karl Anderson (Chad Allegra), Luke Gallows (Drew Hankinson), EC3 (Michael Hutter) and Lio Rush (Lionel Green). We wish them all the best in their future endeavors

Agents Shane Helms, Lance Storm, and Fit Finlay are all reportedly gone as well. It's safe to assume there will be more, and I'll continue to add to this throughout the day.

As of 8:35 PM here's the names. This does not include behind the scenes talent or NXT talent.
WWE has come to terms on the release of Kurt Angle, Rusev (Miroslav Barnyashev), Drake Maverick (James Curtin), Zack Ryder (Matthew Cardona), Curt Hawkins (Brian Myers), Karl Anderson (Chad Allegra), Luke Gallows (Drew Hankinson), Heath Slater (Heath Miller), Eric Young (Jeremy Fritz), Rowan (Joseph Ruud), Sarah Logan (Sarah Rowe), No Way Jose (Levis Valenzuela), Mike Chioda, Mike Kanellis (Mike Bennett), Maria Kanellis, EC3 (Michael Hutter), Aiden English (Matthew Rehwoldt), Lio Rush (Lionel Green), Primo (Edwin Colon) and Epico (Orlando Colon Nieves). We wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
