WWE released a statement saying, "WWE has come to terms on a mutually agreed upon release with Simon Gotch as of today, April 5, 2017. WWE wishes Gotch the best in all his future endeavors". What this means for the future of Aiden English, Gotch's tag team partner, is unknown at this time.
It has only been a year since the WWE brought the Vaudevillians to the main roster.
He was also a contender for the Smackdown tag team crown, though he never won it. After the WWE superstar draft, they were part of another tag tournament for the newly created SmackDown Tag Team Titles, but they lost in the first round to the Hype Bros.
Gotch has been in the company since 2013, when he signed a developmental contract with NXT. From here, they continued to be buried and have done nothing since.

Six people arrested after the attack on Westminster have been released, while four are still in custody, Scotland Yard says. On Thursday, hundreds gathered to hold a vigil to pay tribute to the victims of the attack .
Aiden English will reportedly now be getting a singles push, returning to the Broadway singer gimmick that he used in NXT prior to forming the Vaudevillains. No word yet on what will happen to Aiden English of The Vaudevillains but Gotch is already taking indie bookings.
The timing of the news coincided with WWE calling up a number of former NXT stars to the main roster after WrestleMania 33, including former tag team champions The Revival, Shinsuke Nakamura and Tye Dillinger.
Simon Gotch is gone from WWE.
