While he did participate in a WWE tryout last week, word is that WWE will not be offering former NFL star Shawne Merriman a deal as he reportedly did not look very good in the ring and got tired very quickly.
More Backstage Details on Kassius Ohno's WWE Release
Amongst various reports suggesting why Kassius Ohno was released from WWE, the most common being that the company was not happy with his physique and he apparently did little to improve it, there now seems to be another reason why he might have been let go.
Ohno was reportedly not happy with the push he was getting in NXT, and told co-workers around him that he didn't undertand why he was not being elevated higher than those he thought he was better than. News of his remarks apparently got back to NXT officials, and that sealed his fate with WWE. This, along with his age, physique and WWE not having any immediate main roster plans for him, lead to his release.
