Ho Ho Lun was surprisingly released from WWE after just one year with the company on Friday. But the Cruiserweight wrestler acknowledged in an interview with WWE.com why he left the company.
“I went to Hong Kong for vacation about three weeks ago and that’s when I realized that my mother is sick,” he said. “That’s why I decided to tell Matt Bloom, the head coach of the PC, that I wanted to request my release.”
“I want to thank the WWE fans for supporting me over the last 13 months,” Lun said. “I hope that they can keep following me with my next journey, because I will be making history by helping the scene in Asia. And maybe one day, I can come back to WWE again and perform as a WWE Superstar.
Lun joined WWE as a participant in the Cruiserweight Classic last year, where he was eliminated in the second-round by current 205 Live star Noam Dar.
Lun has appeared sporadically on NXT TV and teamed with Tian Bing in the Dusty Rhodes Classic. His last televised match in NXT was a loss to Velveteen Dream in June.
