Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned that HoHo Lun wasn’t fired from WWE … the wrestler requested his own release in order to deal with a family situation.
WrestlingInc first reported Lun’s exit and now a rep for WWE confirms, “WWE has granted HoHo Lun’s request to be released for personal reasons.”
Lun came to WWE by way of the Cruiserweight Classic where he made it to the second round and was eliminated by current 205 Live star Noam Dar.
HoHo had been used sparingly on NXT TV, but did team with Tian Bing in the Dusty Rhodes Classic.
His last televised match was against Velveteen Dream in a losing effort back in late June.
UPDATE: In an interview with WWE.com, HoHo revealed that his mother is sick and said he requested his release to be home with her in Hong Kong.
