World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is going to be devoid of yet another superstar after the recent announcements of Wade Barrett and Brie Bella leaving the company in near future. While Brie has stated that she will retire this summer, King Barrett is reportedly unhappy with his position in the company and will leave following his contract expiry.
Another wrestler has reportedly offered his notice to WWE and many within the wrestling community are happy with the decision.
According to speculations, Alberto Del Rio might be the unnamed wrestler who is willing to part ways with the company following recent creative differences. Officially no names have been released and WWE is trying to keep the news under wraps ahead of WrestleMania 32.
But it is certain that many within the wrestling fraternity delights with the wrestler choosing to leave the company.
The news was released last Friday on the “Bryan and Vinny Show” and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer confirmed the news. However, he did not give away the name of the wrestler.
“I know the rumor, have checked around and gotten no confirmation on it.” Dave Meltzer stated on his Twitter account.
It was previously rumored that Dolph Ziggler was the one willing to leave the company alongside Wade Barrett. Speculations suggested that Ziggler was set to sign for WWE’s rival wrestling promotion Total Nonstop Action (TNA). However, Ziggler did sign a new contract with the company thus cooling down the heat being generated on the news.
News of Barrett leaving the company have received mainly negative responses within the WWE locker room. Many are angry that Barrett has decided quitting when others are facing the same scenario and are still working hard to rise up the ranks within the wrestling promotion.
Although King Barrett is still wrestling for the Vince McMahon owned company, he won’t be staying for the longer term and if news are true, someone along with him is likely to leave following WrestleMania 32. Will it be Del Rio or anyone else? Only time will tell.
