WWE developmental talent TAC (Brandon Carter) was released on Friday.
Carter was a former offensive tackle for Texas Tech University who came into development as a long-time wrestling fan.
Carter previously used Twitter for several outbursts a few months ago and said he wasn't afraid of being fired, unlike the other people "playing it safe".
In November, he wrote: "Not one person in developmental or #wwe have the accolades that I do, yet they act like they are deserved something. #wwe you deserve more! Same generic cookie cutter wrestlers. ONE speaks out and he's a REVOLUTION starter? Change is coming! #wwe you deserve it! #TAC REVOLUTION." The comment was later deleted.
Several days later, similar messages were sent to John Cena and other WWE personalities before the Twitter account went silent.
