• WWE Wrestlers Afraid To Speak Out Regarding Wanting To Leave
Former SmackDown Tag Team Champion Luke Harper publicly announced that he has asked for his release from WWE and WWE officials saw this as him putting pressure on the company to give him his release.
This led to WWE officials not granting him his release and adding more time to his contract based on the time he missed due to being injured.
The same thing happened with Dash Wilder, as WWE went on to add more time to his contract due to the time he missed because of injury.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, WWE wrestlers are now afraid of speaking out regarding wanting to leave WWE as they are afraid WWE might add more time to their contract and won’t grant them their release either.
