    Man they dropped the ball with him IMO. Guy has a lot of potential, and he's not getting any younger. I totally see his point of view.

    What an absolute colossal waste of talent. This guy can probably go anywhere and kill it.

    Very smart of him to wait until the Worlds Collide match aired so that everyone was talking about how talented he is before he asks for this.

    Shame it didn't work out for him but now he has that WWE tag on him, the big companies will be interested and he will be able to show everyone and WWE what they were missing out on.

    I echo the sentiments of everyone else. Luke Harper could have had so many fantastic matches these past few years but I guess they never saw him as someone worthy of even a modest run in the midcard for very long.

    Damn, some good potential gets coming up for AEW in Harper, Ambrose and/or KENTA.

    I'm genuinely saddened by this news. Like I've always been a massive believer in Harper and his capabilities. Yet it seemed for one reason or another he never got that real chance to like stand on his own like all the other members of the Wyatt family had.

    Re: Harper Requests WWE Release

    I was never really a fan of his but I can definitely acknowledge the fact he's an immense talent. Giant, athletic, can talk, can put on an incredible match. They should have followed up on his involvement in the Orton / Bray feud two years back. They bothered to make him seem like a big deal against Randy then just dropped the ball on him completely.

    Re: Harper Requests WWE Release

    Latest via WON:

    Right now the WWE side of things regarding Luke Harper is that he is not going to be released and they’ve added six months to his contract because they’ve said that his contract term that was to end in November, has been added to because it was frozen due to his time off for wrist surgery. So their viewpoint is that he can’t leave until just before next year’s WrestleMania. From an outside perspective, this seems to be a way to dissuade people from going public and saying they’re unhappy. The flip side was Dustin Runnels, who has been out for months with double knee surgery, but because he never said a word, denied he was leaving when rumors came out, was given a release and was able to immediately walk into a good position with AEW .
    Seems odd for him to post this big thing on twitter that he asked to leave, almost saying goodbye to WWE, when there was no indication from them that they actually would let him leave. That's quite the backfire for him, and again not a great look for WWE.

    seems like a longshot, but if they are going to start holding guys into their contracts like that then hopefully there's some pushback against this "independent contractors" bollocks employment type WWE holds guy under

    Wasn't the claim that WWE didn't want to come across as the bad guy company? I can buy it with what happened with Neville but timing seems funny.

    To be fair, Dustin did it right. Luke Harper didn’t.

    I agree that I hope that this stuff can heat up more of a look at the independent contractor status WWE cheats it's wrestlers with.

    Definitely a backfire for him though as of now, not only did he not get his release and get to go where he wants to go, he pissed them off, AND they added even more time to his contract! I'm sure this will make others think twice about trying to go public with their grievances.

    Re: Harper Requests WWE Release

    Tbf as soon as you go public in frustration or criticism they have every right to make it tough for you to leave or stop using you. Imagine if you complained on social media about the company you worked for. You wouldn't expect them to treat you well.

    Looking at it from another perspective, perhaps this could also benefit Harper. Now, he's not only seen as someone underused by the WWE, but he's a figurative prisoner. It could make his return to the indies an even bigger deal.

    At some point, these WWE wrestlers should hold back and just see what the state of indie wrestling will be like this time next year. There's enough guys trying to get into AEW and frankly, we have no idea if they're going to be a success or not.
