Alexander Wolfe has broken his silence on being released by WWE.
Wolfe was among six wrestlers and two referees to be let go from NXT. The reason cited for the cuts was due to budget cuts. Last April, WWE released several main roster and NXT wrestlers. This year was no different other than the company spreading out the cuts over the course of a month.
Wolfe took to Twitter to issue this statement:
“Just for the record: My WWE contract will expire on June 15th. That means I’m a free agent on June 16th. I have a lot in my head right now so let’s keep it short: Thank you @WWENXT @WWE for 6 year. Bye bye.”
Wolfe signed with WWE in 2015 where he started out with the Sanity group that eventually led to a call-up to the main roster and placed on SmackDown. After the group was split up, Wolfe went to NXT UK where he joined the Imperium group.
He just worked Tuesday’s NXT episode where he dropped a quick loss to Killian Dain and was kicked out of the group after the match.
Just for the record:
My WWE contract will expire on June 15th.
That means I'm a free agent on June 16th.
I have a lot in my head right now
so let's keep it short:
