Sami Callihan, who was known as Solomon Crowe in NXT, was released from his WWE contract earlier this month. It now appears he requested the release so he could go out on his own and revamp his image.
According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Callihan was unhappy with how he was progressing in NXT and the way WWE was using him. He eventually got frustrated and wanted to leave. Callihan reportedly wants to “reinvent his image on the independent scene as one of the best wrestlers in the world.”
Callihan reportedly left the company on good terms and the door was left open for a possible return in the future.
