Tye Dillinger Asks for His WWE Release; Posts Statement Suggesting He is Leaving

— WWE’s Tye Dillinger (real name Ronnie Arneill) posted on Twitter a few hours ago to indicate that he asked for his release from WWE, presumably before or after Smackdown Live. He also included a lengthy statement, thanking his fellow talent as well as others backstage in what seems like a farewell speech, which will likely lead many to presume that he was granted his release, though he didn’t confirm that. Coincidentally, yesterday was also Dillinger’s 38th birthday.

” Before rumors begin to spread, let me set things straight ahead of time:

This evening, I requested my release from WWE. In the past 5 and a half years with them, I have seen and done some wonderful things. Things that I am very proud of and will never forget. I have met and have worked with unquestionably, some of the greatest talent on this earth and the pleasure has been all mine.

I feel at this time this decision, as extremely difficult as it was, is what is best for myself and WWE. I wish to continue to grow as a performer and offer those paying hard earned money to watch a show I’m performing on, a little more of myself.

To the male and female locker rooms, coaches and producers, to the production/ring crew, all the way up to the very top of WWE and most of all the fans…I wish you all the very best and thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.
