The wrestler's shirt design was the cause of much controversy recently, spinning out of control after he took to Twitter to call WWE out for putting his name on a racially offensive tee.
The former NXT star revealed being done with the promotion in a live Twitter video on Wednesday, also informing that he's dropped the Jordan Myles moniker and is now going by his initials ACH; his real name is Albert Christian Hardie Jr.
"As of today, I would like to officially announce that I quit f***ing WWE; I’m no longer an employee," he exclaimed. "I refuse to work for racists."
"I f***ing quit - f*** them, I hate that f***ing company and everything that they stand for - all they did was hold our people back!" Hardie continued.
Hardie would remind wrestling fans to never refer to him by his "slave name" again.
"Don’t ever call me by my slave name," he said. "Call me ACH and don’t forget the Super, b***h. I quit! F*** you!."

WWE released a statement following Hardie's accusations, claiming that they'd run the design by him and got the okay.
"As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding," the statement read. "This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned."
The wrestler says he told WWE he didn't like the design but they printed it anyway, adding he'd only seen it on a white background before it went into production.
He's Still Within His Rights
It's really unfortunate how this has turned out and, whether you feel he's handled himself poorly or not, Hardie does have the right to distance himself from an employer he believes is racist.
Technically, though, wrestlers signed to WWE aren't employees but are independent contractors.
