Lars Sullivan no longer with WWE


Lars Sullivan is no longer with WWE.

WWE officials have confirmed that Sullivan, real name Dylan Miley, is no longer with the company. PWInsider first reported the story, noting he was released from the company last month.

Miley had not been seen on WWE television since last fall, when he made his return to the company on the SmackDown brand following a knee injury. He routinely attacked a number of stars, including Jeff Hardy and The Miz, and also had sit-down interviews with Michael Cole. He soon vanished from television, however, with no explanation given.

Signing with WWE in 2013, Miley wouldn’t start appearing on NXT television until 2017, first using his real name then later going by the Sullivan name. He challenged then-NXT Champion Aleister Black at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II for the title in a losing effort in 2018.

Vignettes for Miley started to air on main roster television in the fall of 2018, but plans for his television debut were delayed due to anxiety issues. He eventually made his debut in April of 2019, attacking Kurt Angle. A few months later, he suffered a knee injury in a match against the Lucha House Party that kept him out of action for over a year.

Miley was fined $100,000 and was required to complete sensitivity training in 2019 after offensive message board posts made by Miley surfaced. They contained racist, offensive, and homophobic messages that Miley later apologized for.

“There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago," he wrote on social media at the time. "They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
