TNA Wrestling issued a statement on its website yesterday confirming the release of "Wildcat" Chris Harris. However, that statement was later pulled from the website. is reporting that this doesn't mean Harris came to a new agreement with the company as he was offered a new deal recently and turned it down as it wasn't happy with it and instead opted to let his current deal expire.

Sources close to the situation have stated that Harris was unhappy in the last few months with his current role within TNA and it seemed obvious to some backstage that Harris would be leaving the company very soon. He had what was described as a "farewell dinner" with a number of TNA wrestlers following the TV taping on Tuesday.
