PWInsider reports that Sullivan was quietly released from the company last month, and WWE officials confirmed the news to them.
Sullivan changed his Instagram name and removed details of his affiliation with WWE in his bio a couple of hours prior to when this news broke out.
WWE reportedly had big plans for Sullivan after his last return, but he was taken off TV just a few weeks after returning, and was never seen again.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Sullivan no-showed a TV taping and his name was never brought up during backstage meetings after that, and was eventually released.
There were plans for Lars Sullivan to defeat John Cena at WrestleMania at one point as well, but they never materialized.

“There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
