As seen in the video above, What Culture Pro Wrestling announced the departures of Joseph Connors, Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate and Trent Seven due to "WWE contractual obligations." All four men are scheduled to be part of the upcoming WWE UK Championship tournament. As noted, William Regal was recently interviewed by WCPW after the WWE UK Championship was announced and had said that talent working the tournament would still be able to work elsewhere, which apparently isn't completely the case.
"There is zero restriction on anybody working anywhere, except for these companies who won't let these fellas work for them [WWE]," Regal said in December. "They are free agents, just as long as we need them for certain dates, we'll give them plenty of notice. This is not the 'Big Bad Wolf' coming in to try and take away everything from anybody. This is to give these fellas, who we think are the best, some money in their pockets."
