Wade Barrett Just Confirmed He Is Leaving WWE; Six Other Superstars Released

The WWE roster trimmed their rosters today, with the most notable name on the list being that of Wade Barrett. Or King Barrett, as he was sometimes known.

It had long been speculated that Barrett would be gone from the company when his current contract expired in June. On Friday afternoon he posted on Twitter that he has reached an agreement with the WWE to terminate his contract early, making him a free agent (and technically unemployed, we guess).

The rest of the roster cuts are more of the “you’re released” variety. According to a statement on the WWE website, Santino Marella, Cameron, Hornswoggle, Alex Riley, El Torito, and Zeb Colter were also relieved of their duties, even though some of those people aren’t even currently on TV. Hell, Santino Marella retired back in 2014.
