WWE has cut ties with developmental wrestler Kassius Ohno, real name Chris Spradlin.

Spradlin, was informed of his contractual release from the organization while getting ready to begin training yesterday morning at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. After news surfaced of his departure, Pro Wrestling Syndicate announced on Facebook that as Chris Hero, he will face “Hurricane” Helms at their next event taking place on Saturday, November 16 in Rahway New Jersey. Pro Wrestling Guerrilla also jumped on the news via Twitter, confirming him for their All-Star Weekend 10 events in California in December.

We reported in July that Spradlin had issues with management over his weight and physique, which put his promising career on hold. He recently returned the ring, and in his final televised appearance, lost to Luke Harper—airing on this week’s episode of WWE NXT.

Spradlin has yet to comment on his release on Twitter.

    Who’s the one always saying these ROH guys shouldn’t go WWE?

    Who’s the one always saying the grass isn’t always greener on the other side?

    Who’s the one proven right AGAIN?

    I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count.

    Have a great weekend.

      So because a guy doesnt work out for whatever reason you are proven right? Do you know how many guys have tried and failed to make it in WWE, WCW, ECW and TNA for one reason or another? It doesnt mean that they shouldnt try to move on to bigger and better things. Things sometimes just dont work out or the company doesnt see a fit for the wrestler.

      Hey loser, I mean Creature, answer me directly…

      Who thinks WWE is perfect? I want THREE names. Give me THREE fu€king names that say WWE is perfect?

      I’ve been asking you for days know with no response.

      Thanks for proving me right, AGAIN.

      You say you’re exposing the WWE and it’s fans, the only thing you expose buddy is your pink man panties – your man-ties. You don’t expose anything other than your stupidity.

    So Hero gets cut because of the way he looks.

    And Danielson and Brooks are two of the ugliest guys on the planet – Brooks is over tattooed and a horrible example for the kids, especially with all those tatts and his promiscuity – Danielson’s beard, for whatever anyone says, looks like cr*p.

    Brooks is greasy – his face and sideburns – he looks like a rooster – Danielson all pale.

    And they get rid of Hero?


    Yet another reason for me to despise that company.

    I said he should never go there – believe it or not – told him personally at an event too – like I say


    Proved right again.

      So CM Punk is a bad example for kids because he has tattoos? So what. I think the more important thing is he doesnt smoke, drink or do drugs. How do you know he is promiscious? Hero was cut because management wanted a certain look and he didnt want to live up to the look they asked of him.

      You may think they look “gross” but they are still in shape. I really like hero but he told to get into shape and didn’t no one to blame but him.
