Recent WWE releases confirmed – 6/13/12

Several WWE developmental releases have been made in the last week, reports Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com.

Eli Cottonwood, who appeared on WWE NXT, requested for his release from the company and had it granted. Reports suggest Cottonwood received a job offer outside of the wrestling business and decided to take it.

Jiro, who was originally trained in Japan by TAKA Michinoku’s Kaientai-Dojo, has also been released, along with Benicio Salazar, a Mexican talent who worked under a mask in Mexico as El Hijo del Medico Asesino, and Sonny Elliot, a developmental talent from Australia, who have all been released from their developmental contracts.

All four wrestlers have been removed from the Florida Championship Wrestling roster page earlier this week.
