A WWE Raw star is leaving the company.

After impressing on the independent scene, Dijak signed with WWE in 2017, but his run with the company is now coming to an end. Back in May, it was reported his contract was coming up soon, and no agreement has been reached.

Since the RETRIBUTION stable collapsed and the star eventually returned to NXT in 2022, he’s regularly impressed with his in-ring work, becoming an important part of the show. However, after being moved to Raw as part of the 2024 Draft he all but disappeared from television.

This led to reports that WWE had no plans for the star despite his main roster switch.

Dijak Confirms WWE Departure

In a new post on social media, Dijak broke his silence on the speculation to confirm he’ll be leaving WWE when his contract expires on June 28th. In the open letter to fans, the former NXT star said the company never negotiated with him over a new deal, despite his attempts to open a dialogue. Dijak added he was thankful but disappointed at how his run had come to an end.

Here’s the truth,

WWE never negotiated with me. We attempted to negotiatiate and they stonewalled us. They never made me a single offer, then they informed me they would not renew my contact at the eleventh hour. 2 months ago I was in one of the best matches in NXT history, and a top match of Wrestlemania weekend. On that day, a top executive in WWE told me I was “crushing it.” I was slated to feud for the NXT title but I got called up to RAW instead.

I consistently outperformed everyone’s expectations, especially throughout 2023 and early 2024. I never complained about anything or was difficult to work with. I tirelessly pitched ideas to anyone who would listen, as recently as the day before I was notified. I never once missed a booking, and I was injured 1 time in 7 years for 3 months. I’m thankful, disappointed, but also excited. This has lit a fire under me to relentlessly prove myself to the world. All I ever wanted was a fair shot and now I have the opportunity to go out and take it.

That’s enough talk, now it’s time to Do or Dijak.

My last day under a WWE contract is June 28, 2024. Bookings/Interviews:
