Mike Kanellis has requested his release from WWE and took to social media to share the news with fans.
On Monday, the WWE star revealed the news in a lengthy statement explaining his decision to be let out of his contract with the company. As of this writing, there’s no word yet on if WWE plans to grant him the release.
This comes after Mike and his wife, Maria, had signed new WWE contracts that would’ve seen them be with the company for the next five years. In the statement, he confirmed that he signed a new deal back in June.
An excerpt from the statement reads, “I thought it was what was best for my family, and maybe from a financial standpoint it was. But I quickly realized that bringing my work frustrations and misery home with me is not good for my family and I no longer want my daughter to constantly see me come home defeated, sad and angry.”
This isn’t the first time that Mike has requested his release from the company. Back in January, it was reported that the married couple had asked for WWE officials to release them from their contracts.
At the time, it was reported that they’ve been unhappy with the WWE due to the way they’ve been used.
While some WWE stars have had their releases granted, many stars have been turned down.
