There is an update on Luke Harper in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter and it doesn’t look like WWE plans on granting his request to be released.
Dave Meltzer noted that Harper has not been booked for any future shows but WWE won’t let him out of his contract.
Harper asked Vince McMahon if he wasn’t going to be used if he could be released in November on his contract expiration date. WWE recently extended his deal for an additional six months because he was out with an injury.
McMahon told Harper to ask “Triple H” Paul Levesque about that. Levesque did not respond to him.
