Mike Bennett/Maria asking to be released

What do you think of Mike Bennett and Maria wanting out of their WWE contracts?  Smart since they don't like how they are being used, stupid since they are cutting off a steady steam of income for hardly having to work for it, or something in between?  

It's hardly a big loss, but it's pretty disingenuous on Mike's part to very publicly work through addiction issues on WWE's dime and then turn around and ask for his release.  Granted he's in a loser gimmick going nowhere, but honestly the least you can do is suck it up and work out the remainder of your contract in exchange for all the goodwill that the company has shown.
