– WWE has announced that Manu (Afa Anoa’i, Jr.), son of Afa the Wild Samoan, has been released from the company.
Manu was signed to a developmental deal in late 2006. He was brought up to the Raw brand last year to second Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes as part of a second generation unit.
There had been some unhappiness about his work and look, which led to his removal from the Legacy group. He hadn’t been seen in several weeks after being broken off from the Legacy storyline with the last tease sort of being that he and Sim Snuka would have some sort of partnership.
