Albert Hardie Jr., who is once again using the ring name ACH, released an expletive-laden video on Twitter this evening officially announcing that he has quit WWE.
“As of today I’d like to officially announce that I quit *** WWE. I am no longer an employee. I refuse to work for racist … I *** quit. I hate that *** company and everything they stand for. All they did was hold our *** people back. I do this *** for the culture. I don’t need anyone’s *** permission to do what I want to do. Screw ‘Jordan Myles’ don’t ever call me by that slave name. Call me ACH and don’t forget the Super, ***. I quit! *** you!”

On Oct. 27th ACH first expressed his frustration with WWE and NXT management over the creation of a piece of controversial merchandise, even directly calling out Triple H and Vince McMahon in a series of tweets.
The t-shirt in question featured his stage name at the time, Jordan Myles, in white text surrounded by a red border in a way that made it look like a mouth. It bared obvious resemblance to historically racist imagery used to stereotype African-Americans.
WWE later issued a statement claiming that ACH had signed off on the design being used, which he refuted by releasing emails between himself and Baker Landon, Creative Services and Talent Coordinator for the WWE NXT brand.
On Nov. 3rd, ACH issued an ultimatum to management; “If WWE doesn’t reach out to me by tomorrow I’ll make sure my voice and my movement will be heard.” That was the last we had heard on the situation until today’s video announcing his departure from the company.
