It now looks as though there is a serious chance that Rikishi may be released from the WWE. With the amount of time he has been sidelined with his ankle injury, many feel that he is now just milking the injury. This comes after the request for Rikishi to lose a certain amount of weight and he only lost a portion of that.

Rikishi is still under contract to the WWE, but he still has a great deal of heat with upper management after he appeared on his relative Afa's show while he was rehabbing from an injury, but told the WWE is still unable to appear on a show for them. There are rumors that a roster spot may not be waiting for Rikishi when he returns.

WWE released former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion Rikishi yesterday.

Rikishi hasn't been in action lately due to an ankle injury, and the general feeling amongst others was that he wasn't exactly hurrying to return as quickly as he could have. Reasons for this were believed to be down to the fact that he had a higher downside than an upside to wrestling, thus made just as much money not working, as he would have working.

It was also known that WWE wanted him to lost weight so that they could possibly change his gimmick, but he didn't do so.

Rikishi could possibly be joining TNA in the near future. At least the word going around right now is that TNA is interested in bringing him in, and think that he could do better for himself in TNA than he did in WWE.

Rikishi is said to not be interested in working for TNA for now. He apparently came away with a bad impression of the promotion after the few shows he has watched. He also figures he won't be used well, given TNA's policy of pushing their own homegrown talent above others.

At this point, Rikishi is hoping that WWE will eventually bring him back. He is also looking into other indy promotions as well.
