While the Jordan Myles/ACH situation continues to rumble on,
the NXT wrestler isn’t the only person desperate to get out of their WWE
contract. It was only a matter of days ago that Sin Cara requested his WWE
release, and now there’s an update on the masked grappler’s future.
It was Monday, during WWE’s European tour, that Cara took to
Twitter with a heartfelt message explaining how he wanted out of WWE as he no
longer felt valued as a wrestler or as a person. Despite the El Paso native’s
unhappiness in the workplace, it was initially believed that WWE would not be
letting him out of his current deal. Instead, it appears that the former NXT
Tag Team Champion may get his way after all.
After the 42-year-old’s request and subsequent Twitter post,
WWE sent him home as they decided what to do with a wrestler who still has approximately
three years left to run on his current WWE deal. Having previously refused to release the likes of Luke
Harper and Mike Kanellis after similar public outbursts, WWE’s stance seems to
have changed from outright not letting contracted talent out of their deals.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE is open to granting
releases for talents who they feel won’t end up signing for AEW or, if they do
sign for AEW, would make no real difference to the AEW product. As such, Sin
Cara may well be afforded his WWE release at some point in the near future - particularly with Cara reportedly wanting to focus his attention on the world of MMA.
