WWE has announced that Luke Harper (Jon Huber) and Sin Cara (Jorge Arias) have been granted releases from the company.
A short statement was released by the company on Sunday afternoon to announce the news:
WWE has come to terms on the releases of Jonathan Huber (Luke Harper) and Sin Cara. WWE wishes them all the best in their future endeavors.
Arias, 42, was signed by WWE in 2009 and assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling where he wrestled as Hunico. He was brought up to the main roster as a fake version of Sin Cara to feud with the original, Luis Urive. The program culminated in Arias being unmasked and reverting to the persona of Hunico on the main roster. He later teamed with Camacho, who now wrestled as Tanga Loa in New Japan.
When Urive left WWE, Arias assumed the role of Sin Cara and wrestled under the mask for the duration of his tenure with the company.
After a minor program with Andrade and Zelina Vega that appeared to have wrapped up, Sin Cara requested his release publicly last month.
Arias attended the Combate Americas pay-per-view on Saturday night to support Alberto El Patron.
Arias revealed the news of his release earlier in the day:
As of today I have been granted my release from WWE.
Thank you WWE Universe it has been an amazing adventure. 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/JLUJoJPBmR

Huber, 39, signed with WWE in 2012 and worked in FCW (later NXT) before his call up in the summer of 2013 as a member of The Wyatt Family. The faction was formed in NXT with Harper paired with Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan and created an instant buzz after their unique vignettes were produced.
The Wyatts went through several breakups and reunions, specifically Harper and Rowan over the years. Their recent pairing came after months of Harper not being utilized after requesting his release this past April. Harper and Rowan were split up against after the draft in October with Rowan moved to Raw and Harper on SmackDown. Harper’s last on-screen appearance occurred at Crown Jewel where he was part of a 20-man battle royal.
