Alex Riley and Hornswoggle — RELEASED From WWE … And They’re Not the Only Ones

WWE has just announced the releases of Alex Riley, Damien Sandow, Santino Marella, Cameron, Zeb Colter, El Torito and Hornswoggle.

The company posted a statement Friday on WWE.com wishing them all the best in their future endeavors — with the list of names being updated throughout the morning, presumably once each had received word.

Wade Barrett also announced he was let out of his contract early.

Hornswoggle has been relatively unused on television since he was suspended back in September 2015 — but he’d been with the company since 2006.

Riley had recently been making a comeback on NXT television and most recently wrestled Shinsuke Nakamura at a taping. He famously accompanied Miz to the ring at WrestleMania.

Colter last appeared on TV when he was accompanying Alberto Del Rio to the ring after he first returned to the company, but he’s been unseen since they split.

The last time El Torito was on RAW he was beat up by Diego … and with the repackaging of Primo and Epico that’s underway, we’re guessing he saw the writing on the wall.

No comment from any of the wrestlers at this point.
