Fulton has been with the company since September 2012, joining SAniTy in September 2016 before being removed from the group and replaced by Killian Dain due to a legitimate injury he had suffered.
Fulton took to his Twitter account to speak about his release. Suffice it to say, he is excited about what is to come and he promised to be back in the future and show why he was meant to be there.
Here is the full post by Fulton:
Later on in the day, Pro Wrestling Sheet confirmed that NXT trainee Leo Gao was also released from his contract.
Gao’s release may stem from a neck injury he suffered over the summer. While he never performed on television, Gao was loved by the members of the WWE Performance Center following his tryout in China.
Gao took to his Twitter account to say that he wasn’t expecting his release, but he will keep on smiling and so should you.
Here is what he said:
Life is like a box of chocolates, you never konw what you're going to get.So should be keep smile! pic.twitter.com/yGVHL9gB3B
