Recommended Posts

It wasn't a part of their long record holding reign, but Demolition DID do the three man team thing when Crush joined the group during their 2nd reign as champs.

Any truth to the story that the writer was gay and anti-Trump?

His tweets appear to confirm both. https://twitter.com/tommiecas

I'm sure a fair and reasonable man like Vince would never fire someone for those reasons, though.

How many threads will this be posted in? Probably quite a few. But I think this is the first one.

I don't think Vince would fire anyone for being gay, considering who his right hand man for 30 years was. But according to Court Bauer, Vince once fired a writer for looking like an alien and it was "too weird to look at him" so who knows?

Well, the guy said himself that his firing had nothing to do with his being gay or the election, so there's that.

What the hell did Sheamus do to his head in that video? Looks like he branded himself??

Crush joined during the third reign.

I see Victator pointed that out already.

The writer that was recently let go by the WWE, the guy people were talking about before on the same damn page.

Context clues, people.

My brain is fried from teaching exams apparently.  But hey, I passed.  I can't find my car when I park anymore though.

To be fair to Vince, the guy does kinda look like an alien.

Why are sites speculating that because he's gone the women's division will suffer?  Aren't Steph and Hunter both huge advocates of the women?

It doesn't matter if they are or if anyone is. It just matters if Vince is at that given moment which is always the problem. Sure he might like giving the women time to shine right now, but all it will take is one really bad match to set him off and next thing you know it will be another 10 years before there's ever a Women's main event on RAW again.

Because people enjoy jumping to conclusions without thinking rationally?

Well, they lost Lawler, too.  He was a big advocate of women's wrestling

Speaking of the women's roster apparently Lana worked a match at an NXT house show as a babyface and she has a dancing gimmick. She has a dancing background.

So in my absence have people come to see Braun Strowman as the best wrestling prospect in over a decade. 

Size, speed, charisma and dude can talk.

The WWE would like to wish John Cena the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Yeah, I mean after all, since the guy was gay and liberal, clearly that was why he was fired.  Never mind that I'm pretty sure everyone he worked with knew that the whole time and if that REALLY was such a sore spot with the McMahons, he would never have been hired in the first place, but no, let's go with "Dude, did you see his Twitter when Trump won?  No wonder Vince shitcanned him."

I heard he got fired because he flunked out of the Terry Garvin School of Self-Defense.
