WWE announced Sunday that they have released Luke Harper (Jonathan Huber), Sin Cara (Jorge Arias), and “The Ascension” Konnor (Ryan Parmeter) and Viktor (Eric Thompson) from their contracts. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: Harper and Sin Cara both previously announced that they had requested their releases from the company. Harper recently filed a trademark on the Brodie Lee name that he used on the independent scene. It will be interesting to see where the four wrestlers land. Harper strikes me as the standout of the four and AEW would seem to be a good fit, though we don’t know the terms of the releases.
