Brodus Clay was released by WWE today as part of its bloodletting of the lower mid-card talent who creative simply has nothing for. On the surface, it seems a waste of a good monster who could have had at least a decent career as one if he wasn't killed dead when he was given a dancing dinosaur gimmick.
In fairness, he somehow managed to get that gimmick over.
Either way, he's gone, and already making plans for his future. According to TMZ, he'll be heading to Japan soon not necessarily to wrestle, though he won't rule that out, but to protect dolphins.
Brodus says he booked a trip to Japan for this summer and plans to protest dolphin hunting. He's been passionate about the cause ever since seeing the Oscar winning documentary, "The Cove".
He also apparently has plans to act and/or write a book.
In addition to this, Jeff Jarrett was active on Twitter today saying:
Well, the Independent Wrestling talent pool just got deeper today... And, it's really deep already... #GFW ... http://t.co/asoU8eX0g3— Jeff Jarrett (@RealJeffJarrett) June 12, 2014
Clay initially responded to that tweet saying he was interested in GFW but later deleted it from his timeline.
For his part, the man himself had this to say:

Update: Pro Wrestling Syndicate has revealed on its Facebook page that Clay signed with the promotion today:
