Ricardo Rodriguez was released from WWE on Wednesday as part of the company's budget cuts. Since breaking Rodriguez away from Rob Van Dam, the company had struggled to find a spot for him on the main roster. Rodriguez was given a role on the Spanish broadcast team and worked occasional matches under a masked Lucha Libre gimmick known as El Local.

Rodriguez wanted to wrestle and that was something he shared in his first comments following the news of his release broke:

He's expected to work dates on the independent scene and Tweeted a photo on Friday where the was bowling in Florida with TNA Knockout Brittany:

    I think they made a mistake in releasing him. He could have been good with Kalisto and Sin Cara in NXT. Problem was the name El Local was doomed to fail due to him being a jobber and not taken as a serious wrestler.
