Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin revealed on his official Twitter account that he has been released from the company effective today.

The post reads, “I have been released from my wwe contract. I thank @wwe staff, talent, and of course the fans for Everything. Something ends, something new Begins. Looking forward to my next Chapter.”

Benjamin’s last televised appearance came as part of the September 11th episode of WWE Main Event when he teamed with Cedric Alexander to face off against The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar).

Benjamin is the eighth name confirmed to be released today following the departures of Mustafa Ali, Emma, Aliyah, Rick Boogs, Elias, Riddick Moss and Top Dolla.
