WWE Superstar Requests Release
The report states that Metalik’s reasons for asking this are because he’s frustrated with the direction his character is taking. Metalik’s contract runs until 2023.
He’s hoping to continue wrestling in the U.S., Mexico, as well as Japan. He once worked in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
This was on-and-off from 2010 to 2017. There’s no word around what WWE’s response has been.
Gran Metalik has 16 years of pro wrestling experience. From Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, he jumped into the spotlight at CMLL.
He first wrestled as Metalik, and later changed his name to Máscara Dorada. As Dorada, Metalik was known as a premiere Lucha libre “high flyer”.
He was a CMLL World Welterweight Championship four times. This record still stands today.
Metalik came to the WWE in 2016. He was in the Cruiserweight Classic tourney.
He went all the way to the finals. Metalik then ended up losing to TJ Perkins.
More On Gran Metalik
He would still appear in CMLL and CWC until he signed a deal with WWE later that year. Metalik had a stellar run with the company as a member of the Lucha House Party (LHP).
Sadly, Kalisto, part of the LHP, was released from the WWE in 2021. Metalik was last seen on RAW recently, competing with Lince Dorado in a Tag Team Turmoil bout.
If he’s released, Metalik’s last appearance on WWE would be this past Main Event episode. He and Dorado lost to Angel Garza and Humberto Carillo.
Will the WWE grant this superstar his release? It’s hard to say.
There have been several talents leaving the company as of late. Some are let go and some are being granted releases.
Although, as he has a tag team partner, the WWE could have specific plans for both talents. Only time will tell if he exits the company.
