Austin Aries Spoke On His ‘WWE Release’


Austin Aries was released from his WWE contract last week. Shortly after the announcement was made on WWE’s official website, Aries appeared pleased by the news, writing the following on his social media:

Earlier today, Aries released an official statement on his WWE departure, via his Twitter account:

Aries had a 90-day non-compete agreement attached to his WWE contract, which ends on October 5, 2017. He’ll continue to collect his downside guarantee from WWE until that point and will be able to use the Austin Aries name after the agreement expires. Aries can work indie dates during the next three months but the dates will have to be approved by WWE, meaning he won’t be working anywhere WWE doesn’t want him working after his non-compete expires.
