In a series of Tweets, a pair of WWE stars have gone public after they state that WWE has denied their request for release.
After previous speculation, the Dyad from NXT (previously known as the Grizzled Young Veterans before their most recent character iteration) have spoken out publicly about the issue.
With James Drake (Jagger Reid) and Zack Gibson (Rip Fowler) taking to their Twitter accounts to share their thoughts.
“As of today, WWE has denied my request for my release.
“I want to thank you all for your support throughout my career, I’ll never take that for granted.
“My contract with WWE expires on 14th October 2023.
“I’m excited to share our next chapter, once we are free agents.”
With Zack Gibson (still using his current ‘Rip Fowler’ moniker) writing:
“Today WWE have denied our release, which was requested on April 3rd.
“On 15th Oct ’23 we will be free agents again.
“I personally want to thank all of our fans for your continued support, it means a lot to both of us especially during times like these! We’ll see you on the 16th!”
He then added:
Our statements tonight are simply factual and intended to keep our fans (who have been asking questions) updated.
I would like to add that @JoeGacy and @avawwe_ are both boss and will continue to smash everything that they do! Lots of love for both
We’ll continue to provide updates as available on the situation.
