As of today (Monday 23 April 2012) WWE Tough Enough Champion Andy Leavine has had his WWE contract terminated by WWE therefore he has been released of his duties from both the World Wrestling Entertainment and appearing at Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) under the name “Kevin Hackman” or any other aliases, looks like The Hackman could not hack it in WWE/FCW.

He was suspended last August  after disregarding  his working agreement by violating the WWE Wellness Policy, it was heavily suspected that this was drug related.

This is an official statement that Ring Side News provided:

Andy Leavine, winner of the most recent season of Tough Enough, has been released by WWE. 

Leavine had actually been signed to a WWE developmental contract before the 2010 season of Tough Enough. After winning the reality competition, he was sent to Florida Championship Wrestling, where he wrestled as Kevin Hackman. 

He was suspended for 30 days last August for violating WWE’s Talent Wellness Program. 

Details have not been made public regarding the release of Silent Rage but Big Andy took it like a man by tweeting this at 19:18GMT today:

Whatever the case maybe, Andy Leavine is surely taking this well and would like to wish Andy Leavine all the best in his future endeavours.

See you on Spike TV Andy.
