WWE Roster Cuts: Ted DiBiase's Brother Brett Released

Florida Championship Wrestling, the developmental promotion for the WWE, has made a few talent cuts of its own. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via wrestleview.com), one of their first victims was Brett DiBiase.

The younger brother of Ted DiBiase of SmackDown had been wrestling for FCW since mid-2008. The 23-year-old is a third generation superstar as he's the son of the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and the grandson of Iron Mike DiBiase.

During his early time in FCW, Brett wrestled the likes of Sheamus, Wade Barrett and Dolph Ziggler. All of whom are major superstars in the WWE currently.

DiBiase formed a tag team with Joe Hennig, the son of Mr. Perfect, called the Fortunate Sons during his tenure in FCW. In January of 2010, they captured the Florida Tag Team Championship. The pair held the belts for two months after losing it to the Usos.

In April of 2010, DiBiase blew out his knee during a match. The next month he underwent surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Never recovering from the injury, the WWE took it upon themselves to release DiBiase. His information has been removed from Florida Championship Wrestling's Web site.

DiBiase was supposed to make his way up to the main roster soon. The original plan was similar to what he was doing in FCW as he was supposed to be involved in a faction with Hennig and his brother Ted to also be called the Fortunate Sons. The WWE apparently grew impatient with his injury, therefore he was released from the company.
