Sin Cara Asks for WWE Release

It was revealed Monday that WWE Superstar Sin Cara has asked for his official release from the company. In an emotional post, he’s taken to social media, thanking WWE for the opportunity, but trashing them at the same time because he wasn’t given an opportunity.

In a tweet that has been translated into English, Sin Cara wrote in a release earlier on Monday:

Last night, after praying and considering it a lot, thinking about my children and in the future, I made one of the most difficult but sensible decisions I have had to make in my professional wrestling career; I have asked for my WWE release.

He added that he was not valued as an athlete, even when he stayed loyal and worked as hard as he could. There is no comment from WWE on his status or if they’ve granted his release.

Jake Hager Tells Rusev to Quit WWE

Even though Rusev seems content with his role in WWE right now, it didn’t stop AEW’s Jake Hager from chiming into a conversation on social media between Rusev and a fan.

The fan wrote:

“Dear @wwe if you want to just drop the @RusevBUL @fightbobby and @LanaWWEangle with literally no explanation… I’m good with that. Just walk away and pretend the angle never happened. No backlash, we’re good.

Because Rusev had the tweet sent directly to him and he saw it, he simply responded with, “Dear, guy …. nobody cares what you are good with.” 

Hager then replied and wrote, “Leave her and that a–hole company. #ImWithAEW.”

Rusev has not responded, but he did clarify tweets he sent while in Saudi Arabia asking for prayers and said those tweets were not a reflection of his concern for being in an international country or fear of being unable to leave. It was simply a sign he was frustrated that things were taking so long, but said he would absolutely go back to Saudi for WWE’s next show.
