As we reported last week, Vince McMahon is reportedly not a fan of Luke Harper’s work and “doesn’t get him”. He also told Harper personally, in writing, that the company would not be releasing him. Harper requested his release last month after plans for a program with Sami Zayn were dropped. Not only did the company deny his release but they added six months to his contract due to time he missed with an injury.
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Harper hasn’t been booked for any future shows but WWE still won’t let him out of his contract. He asked Vince McMahon if he could be let go in November (his contract expiration date before WWE extended it six months) if he wasn’t going to be used. McMahon told him to take it up with Triple H, but Triple H hasn’t responded to Harper.
