Troy 'Two Dimes' Donovan released by WWE


Troy ‘Two Dimes’ Donavan is gone from WWE.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that Donovan was released from the company yesterday due to a policy issue.

“Troy ‘Two Dimes’ Donovan of the D'Angelo family was let go yesterday [June 11],” Meltzer reports. “This wasn't a budget or creative decision, but a policy issue and he was told he may be brought back in a year.”

Donovan had recently been introduced on NXT television along with Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo as associates of Tony D’Angelo. His highest profile match to date was at NXT’s In Your House event on June 4, where he, Stacks, and D’Angelo defeated Legado del Fantasma. As a result, Legado del Fantasma had to join D’Angelo’s stable.

WWE had announced Donovan’s signing back in March. Prior to signing with the company, he had been wrestling for a year and a half on the independent scene. Under the name Cole Karter, he appeared on several episodes of AEW Dark and AEW Dark Elevation, most notably losing a three-on-one handicap match to Paul Wight on the episode of Elevation that aired on October 23 of last year.
