As a part of the 2024 WWE Draft in April, Dijak was called up to Monday Night Raw from the NXT brand. Outside of a Main Event and WWE Speed taping, Dijak did not officially make his main roster debut as a 2024 Raw Draft selection.

Taking to his social media pages, he revealed that he’ll be entering free agency as his contract was not renewed. He noted that a new offer was never presented to him. Dijak added that at the ‘eleventh hour,’ WWE opted to let him know they would not be renewing his deal. 

Below is his full statement: 

Here’s the truth,
WWE never negotiated with me. We attempted to negotiate and they stonewalled us. They never made me a single offer, then they informed me they would not renew my contract at the eleventh hour. 2 months ago I was in one of the best matches in NXT history, and a top match of Wrestlemania weekend. On that day, a top executive in WWE told me I was “crushing it.” I was slated to feud for the NXT title but I got called up to RAW instead. I consistently outperformed everyone’s expectations, especially throughout 2023 and early 2024. I never complained about anything or was difficult to work with. I tirelessly pitched ideas to anyone who would listen, as recently as the day before I was notified. I never once missed a booking, and I was injured 1 time in 7 years for 3 months. I’m thankful, disappointed, but also excited. This has lit a fire under me to relentlessly prove myself to the world. All I ever wanted was a fair shot and now I have the opportunity to go out and take it. That’s enough talk, now it’s time to Do or Dijak.
My last day under a WWE contract is June 28, 2024. Bookings/Interviews: [email protected]
