WWE has announced that they have released Ryan Parmeter (Konnor) and Eric Thompson (Viktor) of The Ascension.
Their release does not come as much of a surprise since they haven’t wrestled on shows since April. Their last match was a loss to Heavy Machinery on an episode of WWE Main Event on April 8.
Konnor first signed with WWE’s developmental system in 2005 and then departed in 2007 before being signed again in 2010. He was moved up to the main roster in 2014.
Viktor trained in the Hart Dungeon in the late 90s and early 2000s and was signed by WWE in 2011. He also made his main roster debut, alongside Konnor, in 2014.
They join Luke Harper and Sin Cara on the list of names released earlier today.
