Count Luke Harper as the latest WWE wrestler to ask for their release.
The former Wyatt Family member shared a statement saying:
“As of this evening, I have requested a release from WWE. The past 6 years have been a simply, amazing journey around the world and back with lifelong friends and family. I am proud of it all and proud to say I shared the ring with my co workers.
This decision, as difficult as it was, feels right for myself and WWE. My goal in the future is to continue to grow as a performer and person and continue to make my family proud.
Thank you. From the top to the bottom of WWE. Thank you to the fans for your undying support. Thank you everyone.”
As we previously reported, Harper opened up about his return from injury being scheduled for AXXESS during WrestleMania weekend and how he felt about his current place in the company.
No word on whether Harper will be let go from WWE anytime soon. As you’ll recall, Tye Dillinger and Hideo Itami did the same recently and were granted their releases.
