Cameron was best known for her role as one of the "Funkadactyls" alongside wrestler Brodus Clay before spending some time on the WWE reality series "Total Divas".
Damien Sandow was also released from his contract on Friday after a career with WWE that last more than a decade. Most recently, Sandow had some success working alongside "The Miz" in an angle where he pretended to be his "stunt double" on air.
"WWE wishes them the best in all their future endeavors," the company said in a statement released on Friday.
None of the superstars who were released had been regular parts of television programming in recent months except for Colter, who was a manager for Alberto Del Rio upon his return to WWE last year before once again disappearing off screen again.
