According to PWInsider WWE has released WWE SmackDown Superstar Lars Sullivan (real name Dylan Miley). FW4Online is also confirming that Sullivan has been released.

FW4Online is also confirming that Sullivan has been released.

Miley signed a developmental deal with WWE in 2013 after initially training under Bobby Lashley in Colorado.  Miley debuted as Lars Sullivan in NXT in May 2017.

His debut on the main roster was on Raw in January 2019. He was then removed from WWE television until April 2019, where he attacked Kurt Angle the night after he retired at WrestleMania 36.  This would lead to a series of angles where Sullivan would attack babyfaces on Raw.  However, he would then spend time away due to serious personal issues that included social media posts with racist and homophobic remarks.

Sullivan’s last match was on the October 23, 2020 episode of Friday Night SmackDown defeating Chad Gable. 

As of this report, WWE has not made an official announcement.  We will have more as this story develops. 

WWE Superstar Titus O’Neill later took to Twitter to note that Miley approached the WWE roster to apologize.  You can read O’Neill’s Twitter post below:
