As Rachel noted earlier here on eWrestlingNews.com, one of the big stories over the weekend was that Justin Gabriel suddenly asked for his WWE release. According to a source, Gabriel was upset with his place in the company. When he was removed from the Royal Rumble match, that was apparently the final straw, and he requested and received his WWE release.
Gabriel makes his first post WWE appearance Saturday at the Pro Wrestling Syndicate event Rahway, NJ. He is also being advertised for the WWNLive WrestleMania weekend events. He will be working under the name “PJ Black”.
For what it’s worth, there are numerous other WWE Superstars who have thought about doing the same thing as Gabriel.
