“What up, Brodies? It’s ya boy, Bodhi Hayward. Brady Booker here, to tell you that I was just released from the WWE,” an emotional Hayward said. “I’m hurt, I’m embarrassed, and Brodies, I’m just down bad. For the last 18 months, Andre Chase University and wrestling has been my whole life… but I am no stranger to adversity. Adversity is something that has come up my whole life and I’ve always found a way to get on top. I will do it again. I’m Brady Booker, and I’m here to stay.”
Booker captioned the video and confirmed that he is under a 30-day non-compete clause, writing, “Thank you to all my brodies for the continuous love and support [heart emoji] The journey continues… #30days”
