Meanwhile, according to a report from Fightful Select, John Laurinaitis is the person behind the latest round of releases in the WWE, and he cited budget cuts as the reason.
The superstars have a 30-day non-compete clause, which means they can't wrestle anywhere else for the stipulated period. The report also mentions that Malcolm Bivens, who managed Diamond Mine, told the company that he wasn't planning on re-signing after his contract expired.
He allegedly turned down an offer for a new deal back in February. Cody Rhodes recently made his return to WWE after more than six years of pushing himself forward on the independent circuit and being one of the main men behind the rise of AEW.
Back in 2016, Rhodes felt he was being held back in WWE while also mourning his father's death, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes. This situation then led Cody and his wife Brandi to ask for their release from the company in May 2016, a request that was granted.
Lashley has since been unveiled as The All Mighty and has been handed the push that he arguably deserved during his first run with the company.
