Tajiri requested his release from WWE after signing a new three year deal several weeks ago. He was burnt out from the travel and also wanted to spend time with his wife who was having password issues getting into the United States. As noted yesterday, he will have a no compete clause of 90 days. There are no bad feelings between the two sides.
Christy Hemme actually offered to attend the OVW TV tapings last week despite not being needed. OVW staff had figured that she would be on a promotional tour in New Zealand with Batista overseas but she did not go. She was notified of her release on Monday.
Brock Lesnar is already in Japan and it looks like he will be wrestling this weekend despite all of WWE’s legal threats.
