According to those close to the situation, Tomko had been told by WWE creative that he and Gene Snitsky were going to be put together as a tag team after WrestleMania 22.
At RAW last night, Tomko was not used while Snitsky teamed with Goldust. The pair is going to be teamed in the future as a ‘freaks’ tag team.
Tomko immediately approached WWE management and asked why he wasn’t going to be pushed. He requested his release from the company and it has been granted this morning.
WWE.com will likely make a statement shortly.
