Zeb Colter
WWE announced on Friday that they have released Santino Marella, Cameron, Zeb Colter, El Torito, Alex Riley and Hornswoggle. WWE issued the following:

WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstars Santino Marella, Cameron, El Torito, Hornswoggle, Alex Riley and Zeb Colter as of today, Friday, May 6, 2016. WWE wishes them the best in all of their future endeavors.

Riley signed with WWE in 2007 and was called up to the main roster in late 2010 and was paired with The Miz. Later in his WWE career, he was working as an announcer and a wrestler in NXT.

Hornswoggle signed with WWE in 2006. He won the Cruiserweight Title during his stint with the company.

Colter returned to WWE in 2013 to be the manager of Jack Swagger and Cesaro. He later managed Alberto Del Rio.

UPDATE: Wade Barrett noted on Twitter that he is officially done with WWE. His contract was set to expire in few weeks, and WWE let him out of his contract early. He posted this on Twitter:

Barrett signed with WWE in 2006, and he made his main roster debut in June of 2010 as the leader of the Nexus. He held the Intercontinental Title five-times during his career and won the King of the Ring in 2015.

    2015? Damn it took them some time to announce that.

  • Brett in MN

    And so it begins. They’ve hired a lot of people since the last time they did this. I expect there’ll be 12-15 released this round.

  • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn

    Lol SMH Alex Riley tried

  • Bradley Patterson

    I really wish they would have had Ryder and Riley form a tag team…could have been a good fed up heel-ish team….zeb could have still been used as a manager for a team like the revival.

  • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn


  • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

    Cameron, El Torito and Santino got released as well lol

  • The “Cleaner” Kenny omega #???

    Well imo alex riley was a great talent that never got his shine, hopefully he can go to Japan and be successful there no point of going to tna .

  • Barooq Kidd #POP

    I heard Barrett is done also

  • Bite Me You Loser

    Hornswoggle & Torito had nothing to do. Santino retired so how can they really release him. Cameron was horrid, Zeb was short term, and Riley sucking up to Trump didn’t help him!

  • Misfitz Freud

    Damien Sandow has also been released by WWE (source

    • Lisa

      F___ WWE.

    I will miss Alex Riley and his entrance theme. Great talent. Barret is great too.

  • Zack

    Ahhhh the day is finally here! Now to see if any new surprise releases happen later today or this weekend.

  • Zack

    Also, kinda been waiting out Cameron’s release since day 1. She was an embarrassment. Didn’t care about the business, only wanted to promote her brand. Didn’t respect wrestling. I know a lot of these people deserve a little sympathy for getting released but good riddance to her.

  • Quote the Ravens, nevermore…

    And Damien Sandow…

  • The “Cleaner” Kenny omega #???

    I only wish wade barrett, sandow and riley could’ve gotten a better pushes while with the wwe

  • Omega’d

    WWE F*cked up with Barrett. He had big potential to be a top level star and they ruined it.

  • Fat Owens Fat

    Good Riddance that Santino Marella and Damien Sandarella were released at once!!!

  • It Begins kid

    Why isn’t Eva Marie on the list?

    • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

      She slept with Vince to keep her job lol.

  • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

    I have said this the last couple of years and I’ll say it again, WWE has no idea how to develop most of their mid carders.

  • Bite Me You Loser

    Sandow just got released too.

    • Bonkerz

      They freed Sandow… from his contract… B*stards….

  • The “Cleaner” Kenny omega #???

    Biggest question is how does sandow get released but david otunga is still employed???? Please help me understand

  • Zack

    The roster is still too overloaded for even half of these people to get a legitimate spot on the two shows. I expect some more releases coming.

  • Zack

    We gonna start placing bets on who’s next in the event of a 2nd wave of releases this weekend? My money’s on Swagger.
