WWE Superstar Gran Metalik has reportedly requested his release from the company, with the former Mascara Dorada apparently wanting to return to the independent scene.
Metalik signed for WWE back in 2016 as part of the Cruiserweight division, with the Lucha House Party member having stints on 205 Live as well as the main roster.
It is unknown at this time if WWE has accepted Metalik's request to be released, or if he will be remaining with the company.
According to a report from Mas Lucha, Metalik has requested his release due to a 'lack of opportunities' on WWE programming.
The Mexican wrestler Gran Metalik, who in Mexico we knew as Máscara Dorada, has asked the North American company WWE to release his contract due to lack of opportunities and a clear project within its ranks; this was confirmed to Más Lucha by sources close to the masked tapatío, who debuted on the Raw brand in 2017.
For several months Gran Metalik, a member of Lucha House Party, had shown his dissatisfaction with the way his career has been handled so far, so he seriously considered asking for the release of his contract, which is valid until 2023.
Metalik will likely have a 90-day non-compete clause in his contract should WWE choose to honour his request to be released.
The former Mascara Dorada will most likely head back to Mexico as part of CMLL or even AAA to continue his career, although there is a chance that he may join the likes of AEW, IMPACT or NWA at some point in the future.
