WWE releases Super Crazy.

World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of SmackDown Superstar Super Crazy as of Nov. 5, 2008. WWE wishes Super Crazy the best in all future endeavors.

and from the Wrestling Observer:

Wrestling Observer Newsltter

Smackdown wrestler Super Crazy (real name Francisco Pantoja Islas) reportedly quit the company at a show this past week.

It came out of nowhere, and he was said to be unhappy with his status in the company. He’s been been promised pushes a number of times, but they’ve never materialized.

Senior Vice President of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis didn’t take the news too well. Laurinaitis told Islas, “Do you know how many wrestlers in Mexico want to be here?”

Islas was telling friends that despite his low-level position with the company, he was happy with the pay, but unhappy with his job.

Should WWE release Islas, he is eligible to collect three months of pay without working due to the non-compete clause, but he’s willing to waive it because he simply wants to wrestle to the best of his ability. If he waives the non-compete clause, he is still not able to go to TNA for 90 days, but that’s probably not his goal anyway.

In an update to this story, WWE released a statement on the company website this afternoon acknowledging his departure from the company.

ECW results for July 15, 2008.

Highlights of Tony Atlas and Mark Henry from last week’s episode.

Tazz introduces Mark Henry and Tony Atlas.  Atlas puts over Henry and his strength.  To show how strong he is, Mark Henry bends frying pans with his hands.  Tommy Dreamer comes out, he wants to try to bend frying pans too.  Dreamer “tries” to bend the pan and then bashes it across Henry’s head.  The pan bends, Dreamer leaves the ring.

Teddy Long gives Tommy Dreamer the rest of the night off, because (to paraphrase) ECW is not Raw and he will not condone anarchy.

Mike Knox vs. Shannon Moore

Knox hits a sick looking Knox-out for the pin.

Chavo Guerrero (with Bam Neely) vs. Evan Bourne

Bourne does a pre-taped interview before the match: “I will defy the odds, because I defy gravity.”

Bourne hits moves I’ve never seen before and pins Chavo after a Shooting Star Press.

Tiffany and Colin Delaney talk backstage.  Tony Atlas and Mark Henry interrupt.  Mark Henry bear hugs Colin and tosses him onto some equipment.

The Miz and John Morrison (WWE tag champs) vs. the Hardys

Morrison hits the Moonlight Drive on Matt.  Morrison goes for the pin, but Jeff jumpts off the top rope and hits a Swanton bomb onto Morrison.  Matt Hardy rolls over and pins Morrison.
