Kharma has reportedly told friends that that the company wanted to give her time to clear her head following the emotional year she had. She recently suffered a miscarriage and also got engaged.
While she is no longer on the active roster, the door has been left open for the two to work together in the future.
WWE is not expected to release a statement on the release for two reasons. The first is that she hasn't been used in months and was only used for a very brief period of time within the company. Also, Linda McMahon's senate campaign is focusing on the fact that she is a "job creator" and WWE doesn't want her opponents lashing out at them for "firing" talents. This is also the reason we have not had any "spring cleaning" cuts this year. They are planning to wait until after Linda's senate run to clear out any "dead weight" on the roster.
For those wondering, she does have the standard 90-day non compete clause, which means that she cannot appear for anyone else without WWE permission.
