WWE Releases Darren Young and Summer Rae

For Darren Young, 33, his release comes a bit more of a surprise than Rae's. It's sad to see Emma go because they tried re-casting her a bunch of times but could never get the storytelling right for someone who I personally think is a pretty good performer.

"WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Emma", they tweeted.

Summer Rae is the third release to be mentioned on Sunday. She had most recently been defeated by Asuka twice in the past week; first at "TLC" and then the following night on "Raw".

All questions regarding the former WWE Superstar's future in the professional wrestling industry will be answered in the days to come. She would have impressive runs in NXT, but often saw her main roster career derailed due to injuries. After an incident that led to her doing community service, WWE briefly released her in 2014.

Darren Young had been somewhat lost in obscurity over the last few months, outside of being paired up with WWE legend Bob Backlund. After fizzling out with The Nexus, he joined several other former NXT contestants from various seasons in the fifth "Redemption" season, and it was there where he teamed up with Titus O'Neil to form The Prime Time Players.

The WWE took to Twitter to make the announcement, which shocked wrestling fans. She had expressed her frustrations about not being used on WWE TV in July of this year, but appeared to be picking up momentum with her "trending" gimmick. Young suffered an injury earlier this year and plans for whatever creative push he would have were halted.
