WWE continued to release talent who has requested to be let go as Luke Harper is no longer under contract with the company.
On Sunday, not only did WWE grant the release of Sin Cara but also Harper as they issued the following statement:
“WWE has come to terms on the releases of Jonathan Huber (Luke Harper) and Sin Cara. WWE wishes them all the best in their future endeavors.”
Back in April, Harper requested his release from WWE but the request was denied at the time. This came after he worked some NXT live events in the latter part of 2018 and also underwent surgery due to a wrist injury.
Harper did work the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the WrestleMania 35 Kickoff Show but disappeared until he returned to help Rowan beat Roman Reigns at the WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view event in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Spectrum Center in September.
At Hell in a Cell, Harper and Rowan were defeated by Bryan and Reigns in a tag team match.
After being part of the feud with Reigns and Bryan, WWE decided to separate Rowan and Harper as Rowan was sent to RAW while Harper remained on SmackDown.
