Dexter Lumis has shown off his artistic interpretation of an iconic Vince McMahon photo as he readies himself for post-WWE life.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful first reported the news of ten WWE releases, including Dakota Kai and Dexter Lumis. Departing WWE alongside Kai and Lumis are Malcolm Bivens, Harland, Persia Pirotta, Sanjana George, Draco Anthony, Raelyn Divine, Mila Malan, and Blair Baldwin.
Fightful Select went on to report further details on the releases, including who made the call and the non-compete details:
John Laurinaitis made the cuts and cited budget cuts as the reason. The email internally read “Due to budgetary cuts, and with immediate effect as of today, 4/29/2022, we have come to the terms to release the following. Those cited have 30-day non compete clauses.
Now Dexter Lumis has taken to social media to give his parting shot to WWE showing off an artistic impression of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and giving one last stoic thumbs up.
