Did WWE Fire Austin Aries?

No details on the release were given in the announcement, which simply reads, “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Austin Aries”.BREAKING: #AustinAries has been released from @WWE.Meltzer added however, that upon hearing of his release, Austin Aries was thrilled, a sentiment which seemed to be echoed by his post-release Tweet which said “it’s a a lovely day”. With potential dream matches looming on rosters like Global Force Wrestling, Ring of Honor Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling, ROH’s partner in business, we wish the best to Austin and can not wait to see what his future holds.Aries’ departure comes as his girlfriend, Thea Trinidad, made her NXT debut a few weeks ago with Adrade “Cien” Almas. He actually did pretty well there, until an orbital socket injury he sustanined during a match with Shinsuke Nakamura put him out of action near the end of the year. He will be be able to work independent shows during that period that WWE approves of.WWE, however, apparently wanted to keep fans’ eyes on him, and he was brought in on commentary for Cruiserweight Division/205 Live matches on Raw.Yesterday, WWE announced that they have released Austin Aries from the company.Aries now faces a 90-day cool-off period in which he can only make wrestling appearances approved by WWE, meaning he probably won’t be able to sign for any major promotions until October.Aries was reportedly unhappy backstage, and it was noted that he was upset about the fact that his Cruiserweight Title match with Neville was cut from the WrestleMania 33 DVD, therefore neither man received any royalties from the match.
