Wrestling fans were greeted with the news that WWE star Tye Dillinger had requested his release from the company, making the request public on his twitter page.
“Before rumors being to spread, let me set things straight ahead of time. This evening, I requested my release from WWE.
“In the past 5 and a half years with them, I have seen and done some wonderful things. Things that I am proud of and will never forget. I have met and worked with unquestionably, some of the greatest talent on this earth and the pleasure has been all mine.
“I feel at this time this decision, as extremely difficult as it was, is what is best for myself and WWE. I wish to continue to grow as a performer and offer those paying hard earned money to watch a show I’m performing on, a little more of myself.
“To the male and female locker rooms, coaches and producers, to the production/ring crew, all the way up to the very top of WWE and most of all the fans… l wish you all the very best and thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.”
Many have commented on the tweet with their support, including executive vice president of AEW, Cody Rhodes, who said:
Fearless. I can’t wait to see what you do next. I wish you all the happiness in the world old friend.
Don’t settle. https://t.co/ZTcZtDiycf

Now we’re far from saying that Cody wants Dillinger in AEW, but the two did once tag together in OVW and it is known that they are good friends.
