The Wrestling Observer is reporting that several higher-ups in WWE were surprised to see Kaval released from the company. It’s also being said that the general feeling is that Kaval wanted his release from WWE and it was granted. With nothing major having been done with his character and no big plans in place for Kaval’s future, the feeling seems to be that Kaval was frustrated and asked for his release. WZ reported yesterday that a source we spoke with who is close to Kaval echoed this sentiment, claiming that Kaval had indeed finished with WWE several days ago and felt that the company wasn’t the right fit for him.
It’s also being said that WWE is quicker these days to grant releases when talent asks for them as WWE feels TNA is no competition for them and doesn’t care very much if talent ends up there.
