Sean 'X-Pac' Waltman and the WWE have parted ways, it has been revealed.
This week's Ross Report on WWE.com contains the following brief statement from Jim Ross :
"WWE and Sean Waltman, aka X-Pac, have mutually agreed to part ways. Personally, Sean is one of my all-time favorite people in our business and one hell of a talented in-ring performer. I truly wish him nothing but success in the future."
Waltman and the WWE haven't seen eye to eye for some time - a few weeks ago, Waltman was booked to work Heat only for him to refuse, citing an injury as to why he couldn't perform on Heat and Raw. Waltman hasn't been seen on TV since the nWo angle was aborted.
Many insiders predicted it would only be a matter of time until the WWE released Waltman, and they have now been proved right. It's expected that he may go to Japan to work, as the NWA-TNA may not have the financial clout to make a move for him.
