The following was issued on WWE.com today:

“World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of SmackDown Superstar Scotty Goldman (Scott Colton) as of February 20, 2009. WWE wishes Scott the best in all future endeavors.”

Goldman, who was part of the Smackdown brand, had only been used a few times in the ring by the company and was hosting a web series on WWE.com. His web series and profile have already been removed from WWE’s website. He will be making his final WWE appearance on tonight’s Smackdown in a match with Umaga.

He was well known by many wrestling fans before signing with WWE during his time with Ring of Honor as Colt Cabana and later with the MTV “Wrestling Society X” promotion as Matt Classic.
