We still do not have the full scoop on Cody Rhodes requesting his release from WWE but I did speak to a source that had more information. Apparently WWE planned to just let Rhodes’s deal run out and he demanded to be released as soon as possible.
Several WWE contracts are coming due in June and July. Talent are either being low balled on their downsides or not being offered new deals at all. Triple H is pushing that they clear up some free space on the roster and is hoping to call up a few more NXT acts before SummerSlam.
