Lars Sullivan, who has been a part of the WWE system since 2013 has been released from the company according to PWInsider. The site noted that Sullivan was let go in January.
Sullivan made his NXT TV debut in 2017 and competed on several TakeOver shows. He made his Monday Night RAW debut the night after WrestleMania 35 and the following week, he moved over to the SmackDown brand and became involved in a brief storyline with Lucha House Party (Gran Metalik, Lince Dorado & Kalisto).
Shortly after his arrival to RAW and SmackDown, a series of old message board submissions from Sullivan came to light. Some of the messages that he wrote were racially driven and homophobic. He was fined by the company and WWE issued a statement to Sports Illustrated, apologizing on behalf of Lars.
Both Big E and Titus O’Neil reacted to Lars’ messages that he posted on said forums:
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.
