Popular Star Makes First Post-WWE Appearance One Day After Contract Expires WWE

Donovan Dijak has made his post WWE appearance, returning to the independent scene just one day after his WWE departure.

Earlier this week, Dijak announced on Twitter that WWE had opted not to renew his contract, and he was set to become a free agent on Friday (June 28).

On Saturday, Dijak shared interesting teases, sharing a video of him picking up his leather jacket and sunglasses.

The now-former WWE star then appeared at Saturday night’s Blitzkrieg Pro show, interrupting CPA’s celebration before dropping him with his Feast Your Eyes signature move.

He then cut a heartfelt promo about what’s next for him, which you can watch below.

Dijak joined WWE in 2017. He initially competed on the NXT brand before making his main roster debut in September 2020 as Retribution faction member.

He remained on the main roster after the faction disbanded in March 2021, before returning to NXT in October 2022.

His second NXT run ended in May, with Dijak drafted back to Raw in the 2024 WWE Draft.

Dijak didn’t ever return to Raw, only wrestling at Main Event and Speed tapings ahead of his departure.
