Report: Oney Lorcan requests WWE release


In a list that continues to grow, Oney Lorcan reportedly requested his release at the end of October according to PW Insider.

We have been unable to independently confirm the news as of this writing. WWE has yet to comment as well.

A month away from turning 34, the Boston, MA, native signed with WWE in the fall of 2015 and has primarily been seen on both NXT and NXT UK and as of earlier this year, 205 Live. Lorcan (real name Chris Girard) has been teaming with former rival Danny Burch and the two are scheduled to wrestle for the PROGRESS tag team titles next weekend.

While he hasn't publicly commented on the report, he recently changed his Twitter handle back to his previous ring name of Biff Busick and linked to his Pro Wrestling Tees page.

Lorcan would join several wrestlers who requested their WWE release more publicly like Sin Cara, Luke Harper, and Mike Kanellis.
