WWE Is Not Allowing Released Wrestlers To Compete
This weekend there were four WWE Superstars who were released from the company. Luke Harper, The Ascension and Sin Cara were granted their releases, and now according to Tom Colohue, there are a small number of WWE Superstars who are also considering asking to be released by the company, as they have seen WWE grant the requests of these Superstars.
There is a thought that there has been a change of heart in WWE and they don’t want Superstars who are not really interested in being in the company. However, this has not been concerned and there are no reports of any more Superstars asking for releases yet.
Fightful also reported that the future Superstars who are expected to be released by the WWE might be coming from NXT and the releases might be made official around January and February.
However, there is more news to be noted regarding this, as just because the four Superstars have already been released by WWE, does not mean that they will be available to wrestle elsewhere immediately.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer confirmed that they had been told by the WWE that they would not be able to wrestle until they served their 90-day non-compete clause, which makes them eligible to wrestle again only somewhere around March.
None of these Superstars will be showing up anywhere until at least that length of time.
