Luke Harper announced on Twitter today that he has requested his release from WWE, a decision that he says feels right both for him and the company.

The former Tag Team champion was recently part of the Worlds Collide special at Axxess and was part of the Andre The Giant Memorial battle royal at WrestleMania as well.

He wrote that in the future he wants to continue to grow as a performer while keeping his family proud.
