Mojo Rawley was the final name that WWE announced as part of their recent wave of ten main roster cuts. It turns out that he was the first to get the bad news.
According to Mike Johnson on PW Insider Elite Audio, Mojo Rawley was quietly release from his WWE contract in March. The company just didn’t make an announcement about his departure.
“Mojo was released earlier than everybody else, he was released in the beginning of March, and it just hadn’t been announced. It makes you think if there’s others that have been released, and WWE’s just keeping it quiet for whatever reason. Mojo says he’s free as of May 31, so that means he was released far sooner than anybody else”
Mojo Rawley’s 90-day non-compete clause is up on May 31st. That is far before the July date that the rest of the recent releases have.
We’ll have to see if WWE announces any more releases in the near future. They apparently held onto Mojo Rawley’s release announcement and just decided to tack it in with all the rest on April 15th.
