Black Friday: WWE releases three main roster Superstars and one big name producer
WWE has confirmed the release of three Superstars: Tye Dillinger, Hideo Itami, and TJP.
Both Dillinger and Itami requested their release over the past few weeks, a wish that was quickly granted by the company. TJP’s release was somewhat of a surprise and was on 205 Live this week. The departure of all three was announced on WWE.COM.
Meanwhile, ProWrestlingSheet.com is reporting that Arn Anderson is no longer working for WWE as a producer. It’s not know what led to the popular backstage figure to depart the company. He had been employed since 2001 after WWE took over WCW.
With the recent emergence of All Elite Wrestling offering similar contracts to that of WWE, many wrestlers are starting to see the good in alternative employment from WWE. Up until a few weeks ago when AEW did not really formally exist, not many took the chance of requesting their release from WWE.
