WWE: Reason For The Release Of Mike Mondo

WWE announced Friday that Mike Mondo has been released from his contract.

Mondo, real name Michael Brendli, was arrested earlier this month for a DUI. The wrestler tested for a blood alcohol content level of .094 and then .091, both of which are above the .08 legal limit in Florida.

Formerly of the Spirit Squad, the wrestler had been working in Florida Championship Wrestling as Mighty Mikey.

His arrest marked the third DUI incident in recent memory for WWE performers in Florida; Ted DiBiase, Jr. and Santino Marella had also been charged with driving over the legal limit.
