The somewhat unexplained release of Christy Hemme caught a number of wrestlers off-guard Monday, as the diva was known for having a strong will to improve her wrestling ability.
Sources say that Hemme was notified of her release early Monday; the belief is that the typical 90-day no-compete clause will attach.
Hemme was scheduled to start full-time with Ohio Valley Wrestling after returning from an overseas promotional tour with Batista this week. That trip was reportedly cancelled late last week, with Hemme learning of her outright release today.
ChristyHemme.com has not yet reported the release.
