Join WhatCulture's Adam Wilbourn & Andy H. Murray as they bring you Wednesday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

Today's video begins with news that another WWE wrestler has requested to be released from the promotion (00:24), following on from the recent goings-on surrounding Mustafa Ali. This veteran actually made their request before Ali, however, and is still waiting for an answer.

From there, we rewind to this week's episode of WWE Raw, which, shockingly, was the subject of at least one last-minute change (07:01).


Finally, close on Nick Khan. Vince McMahon's right-hand man has spoken on a number of topics relevant to the company's business in a brand new interview, including the likelihood of WWE being sold anytime soon (09:35).
