Former WWE superstar Murphy issued a statement on his official Twitter account in regards to the news that broke today that he was one of a number of names released from the company.

The statement reads, “So today ends my 8 years with WWE, what a crazy ride, highest of highs, lowest of lows, but whether I had 3 minutes or 20 minutes, I put all my effort into my performances. Nothing is harder when all you want to do is wrestle, but you can’t. In my opinion, I haven’t even hit my peak yet and I’m excited to see what the next adventure holds. I was lucky enough to work with some of the best talent in the world and learnt a tremendous amount, but trust me, the whole world will know what I meant by ‘Best Kept Secret’. Thank you all.”
