Luke Harper (Jonathan Huber) announced Tuesday via social media that he has requested his release from WWE. “My goal in the future is to continue to grow as a performer and a person to make my family proud,” Harper wrote. He also thanked WWE and fans (read the full statement below).
Powell’s POV: Harper did not indicate whether WWE agreed to grant the release. Tye Dillinger previously wrote a similar statement and ended up getting his release days later. At age 39, it makes sense for Harper to get out if the company doesn’t have any plans for him.
