• BREAKING: WWE Officially Releases 2 Wrestlers, 3 Names Released This Week
As we noted before SmackDown wrestler Tye Dillinger asked for his release from WWE this week and he has now been granted his release.
Below is the statement that WWE issued:
Tye Dillinger released
“WWE has come to terms on the release of Ron Arneill (Tye Dillinger).”
WWE has also released 205 Live wrestler Hideo Itami (who also asked for his release):
“WWE has come to terms on the release of Kenta Kobayashi (Hideo Itami).”
Similar to Big Cass’ release last year, WWE didn’t wish Dillinger & Itami best of luck in his future endeavours.
Another name that was released this week was Arn Anderson. ProWrestlingSheet is reported that Arn was released on Thursday. Anderson worked as a backstage producer and his last run with the company started back in 2001.
All Elite Wrestling’s Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes tweeted the following regarding Arn’s WWE release:
Love AA. I stole all of his catchphrases & use them on a daily basis. He went to bat for young talent & at the same time is essentially responsible for all of the current top guys & “golden circle”. He’s not corporate, but that’s a compliment. Can’t take wrestlers outta wrestling
