Brian Kendrick has gained his WWE release.

Last week, PWInsider reported that Brian Kendrick asked out of his WWE contract back in December, but had not been informed of said release. We've since confirmed that Brian Kendrick is no longer under contract to WWE.

Another source indicated that Kendrick was expected to be at the AEW Dynamite show in Chicago on Wednesday, though we're not sure in what capacity. We've yet to verify that with Kendrick or the company.

Kendrick last wrestled for WWE on the 205 Live brand in 2020. Outside of that and a couple of Saudi Arabia battle royal matches, Kendrick hasn't wrestled on WWE RAW or Smackdown since December 2017. He appeared on NXT 2.0 during a brief story with Harland, setting up a match that never happened. He'd been serving as a producer with the company, stating that he'd only be wrestling part-time.

Now, we know what Kendrick will be doing. Kendrick will wrestle Jon Moxley live on TBS on February 2, as announced by All Elite Wrestling.

Fightful has live coverage of AEW Dynamite every Wednesday.
