You can add former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Christian to the list of WWE talents that have been released in the past week. His release has nothing to do with his agreement to do The Edge & Christian Show and is more of a technicality do to him no longer having an active performer’s contract. Christian received a concussion in March 2014 and WWE then decided to stop using him due to his history with concussions.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is also reporting that there were several internal lists going around last week and two other names on the lists that have not been released yet were Ryback and Adam Rose.
Rose is still serving a 60-day suspension due to suffering his second wellness policy violation. He is also currently under arrest following a domestic battery charge involving an incident with his wife. On top of his 60-day suspension he is now also suspended indefinitely.
Ryback has recently been very outspoken against the company and has not been used by WWE since his outspoken comments.
Nick joined WrestleZone in 2015 and has since worked hard to bring pro wrestling fans a variety of exclusive news insights, podcasts, videos and more.
You may know Nick as the former co-host for a variety of successful pro wrestling podcasts with names like Eric Bischoff, Bret "Hitman" Hart and Bill Apter. Or as his villainous pro wrestling manager alter ego "Rinaldo Piven"!
Nick does commentary for Black Label Pro and can be found promoting pro wrestling events for Chicago fans with Viva La Rasslin as well as Duffy's Bar & Grille in Chicago.
Nick has also trained and performed at the Improv Olympic, Annoyance, ComedySportz and Second City improv theaters in Chicago, IL.
