Over the past year and a half, there have been quite a few notable names in the World Wrestling Entertainment that have asked for their release from the company. Cody Rhodes, Ryback, Wade Barrett, and Austin Aries are just a couple of the top of our head. They have not been satisfied with the way they have been treated by the company. Knowing that you can do so much more but that you’re not allowed to can really hurt.
That is why all of these stars decided to leave the biggest wrestling company in the world and to try their luck on the indy scene. Neville is the latest big name that is probably going to leave the WWE, but that is not all. There are reports from the people from WrestlingNews.co that multiple WWE stars are wondering about whether or not they should follow the same path that Cody chose. Here is what was said on their podcast.
“Cody doesn’t have any plans on going to WWE anytime soon. There are wrestlers in WWE going to him and getting advice on their own exit plans from the company. I know this for a fact. I can’t give you the names. I know that’s a bit of a tease but I can’t say the names but there are wrestlers that go to him for advice on how to leave the company.”
Today in the WWE, the general feeling is that no matter how good you are and how well you do, that is not going to get you anywhere if the higher-ups don’t want to push you, if you just don’t fit their plans. All of that is going to force some stars to depart and do what they want to do in the business that they have given everything to.
