Cameron Grimes looked to have a promising run in WWE until his world came crashing down when he recently announced his release from the global juggernaut in an emotional video released on social media.

The news of Grimes’ departure from WWE came amidst the initial wave of releases with the onset of WWE’s new era. Cameron Grimes experienced a notable peak in his WWE tenure during the height of his ‘To the Moon’ phase, where his character amassed considerable wealth through GameStop stock.

However, during recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Grimes revealed that exploring the stock market gimmick provided him with a unique perspective on business dynamics, prompting him to recognize the potential vulnerability of his role within WWE. With a prolonged absence from in-ring action and financial considerations in mind, Grimes anticipated his eventual departure from the company.

“Starting the stock market gimmick, it made me see businesses in a different light. Following these companies and playing with stocks. I would see things in a different light. So I knew [after being called up] that I hadn’t worked in over a year and I’m making a decent salary. So I knew that if somebody was to look at the books, I’m going to be the first person who’s going to be cut.”


While the specifics surrounding Cameron Grimes’ release remain unclear, speculation suggests it may have been a result of financial considerations. Moving forward, Grimes will continue his wrestling career under the name Trevor Lee, with the 90-day non-compete clause limiting his ability to compete elsewhere until July. So we will have to wait and see what the future holds for the former WWE star.
