Lars Sullivan hasn't been on WWE television since November 2020 and he reportedly won't return.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, WWE quietly released Lars Sullivan last month. A reason for his release was not given.
Sullivan was part of the SmackDown brand but had not been on the show since November when he did a sitdown interview with Michael Cole explaining the importance of bullying in his life. Lars last wrestled on the October 23 episode of WWE SmackDown when he defeated Shorty G (Chad Gable).
Lars was signed by WWE in 2013. He made his NXT debut in 2017 and made his main roster debut on WWE Raw following WrestleMania 35 when he attacked Kurt Angle.
In May 2019, WWE fined Lars $100,000 for controversial remarks he made in the past on a bodybuilding forum. He was also required to complete sensitivity training. Lars addressed the remarks prior to his fine being announced, saying “There is no excuse for the inappropriate remarks that I made years ago. They do not reflect my personal beliefs nor who I am today, and I apologize to anyone I offended.”
Due to a knee injury suffered in June 2019, he was off television until October 2020. He had just four televised matches on the main roster.
