5 Reasons why WWE released multiple Superstars recently- TJP, Itami & Dillinger
- Did Vince McMahon not see potential in them?
#4 Itami and Dillinger had asked for their releases
It isn't always WWE who lets you go. Sometimes, it's the talent themselves that demand that they are released from their WWE contracts. One needs to remember that even though WWE is still the leading name when it comes to sports entertainment, there is a brand new player in town and it is called All Elite Wrestling.
We know that Tye Dillinger had asked for his release, and you can read his statement in the post linked above. Similarly, Fightful.com had reported that Hideo Itami had asked to be released from his contract too. Both of these individuals must have seen others not just survive but thrive outside the WWE bubble.
Itami may not necessarily sign with AEW and could head back home to Japan. Whatever the case may be, these men are immensely gifted and should carve a path for themselves outside the WWE.Published 23 Feb 2019, 08:56 IST
