He isn’t a fan either. The WWE roster has changed so much in recent years that it is hard to keep track of where everyone is going. That is not exactly a great thing to see, as several wrestlers are going all over the place, with most of them making their way out of the company. Some wrestlers have even done this by choice, and that seems to be the case again with another veteran.
According to PWInsider.com, Brian Kendrick has requested his release from WWE. Kendrick has been working as a coach and occasional wrestler, though he has not wrestled a match since October. He had been scheduled for a match against Harland in NXT but the match never took place. Kendrick has reportedly requested his release from the company for the last six weeks.
Kendrick has wrestled on and off for WWE for several years in multiple stints. He is a former Tag Team and Cruiserweight Champion who has most recently wrestled on 205 Live. His most recent run in WWE began when he took part in the Cruiserweight Classic, making a relatively deep run in the tournament. There is no word on what caused him to request his release or why WWE has denied his request.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that seems to keep happening and I don’t know what it is going to take to make it stop. At the end of the day, WWE is doing smoething that is running off a lot of its wrestlers and that is not a good thing to see. Ultimately, some people will stay, but at what point are so many people gone that the company is taking some serious damage?
What do you think of Kendrick? Where else could he go? Let us know in the comments below.
