Hideo Itami did the honors at Royal Rumble and on 205 Live, then got a touching farewell from the cruiserweight roster after word hit he’d requested his release, so we kind of knew KENTA’s was coming.
Similarly, Tye Dillinger tweeted out a statement about asking to be set free and got a lot of public support from this fellow independent contractors in WWE, so we figured it was just a matter of time before Ronnie Arneill officially hit the open market.
Last I’d heard, though, TJP’s unhappiness was just a gimmick. But with Theodore Perkins now released by WWE, who knows.
Here’s the company’s brief statements on all three:

Since WWE didn’t offer it, we’ll wish them well in their future endeavors. And keep you posted with any news about their exits, or possible next landing spots.
