-- WWE Hall of Famer "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase stated during an interview with the Poughkeepsie Journal that his son Brett will be released from his developmental contract with WWE at the end of the month. The third generation talent was forced to bow out of competing earlier this year after suffering multiple knee injuries and is now unable to continue working as a referee.
"When he realized he couldn't wrestle without being in pain, well maybe we can go the referee route. Well, then we have a fourth knee surgery. I got to thinking about that and referees are actually up and down even more than wrestlers. Usually when we go down, we're going down on our back. When they go down, they go down on their knees," DiBiase said. "Brett will really officially be released at the end of this month. He's come home now. He's in great spirits. He's sad that it hasn't worked out for him. But on the same token, he was very frustrated and the frustration's over. We got closure."
