Update on Roderick Strong asking for WWE release

Last updated

It appears Roderick Strong is going to have to stick around and he won’t be leaving WWE anytime soon.

After Mustafa Ali, news of the former UE member asking for his release came out earlier this week too. Fightful is reporting that Strong has actually asked for his release from the promotion multiple times over the last few months. He has grown frustrated with many things:

‘Roderick Strong has asked for his WWE release ’˜multiple times’ over the last several months. We’re told that Strong has grown frustrated with many things over the past year within the company and had requested his release, which has been denied by WWE.’

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer further added that while Roderick Strong can quit the company, officials will have the option to freeze his deal. As far as his current contract goes, word is that he still has a couple of years left:

“You can quit, but then they can freeze your deal, so that doesn’t really do you any good. He’s got a couple years left on his deal because he just signed last year before everything changed.”

With such a long time remaining in his current contract, Strong is not likely to be able to jump ships anytime soon. His only hope is getting his release from the officials, but they don’t seem to be in the mood for the same.
