Riddick Moss got the axe
Rick Boogs is up there on the dumb "Vince McMahon name generator" ideas.
His real name is Boogenhagen. Probably wishes he went with the Hagen instead.
Riddick Moss has potential, he'd be a good pickup for Impact or if he committed to wrestling on the indies. Hell of an athlete/physique, just got saddled with an awful gimmick and name
Not surprised Ali got released, but the timing is weird given he was advertised to face Dom on the NXT PLE coming up.
wouldn't be surprised if that whole faction of Gargano, Candace, Lumis, Indi are all sacked by the end of the day
Gargano and Candace would be in AEW before tomorrow morning in that case.
These decisions aren't being made with any booking in mind.
Sure but I doubt it's something they just learned today, they could have done a pivot this week. Unless it's decision coming from the accounting/HR nerds at the top of Endeavor and they didn't involve WWE leadership at all in the process.
They didn't contact Gargano and Candace when they got released the first time
Shelton Benjamin joins the released list
Shelton Benjamin and Dolph Ziggler gone
Didn't Ziggler try to do stand up at one time?
He'll be in AEW
Is his father alive?
Ziggler is a bummer. Love that guy.
not surprised by most of these though. I like a few of them a lot though. Hope they land on their feet and kill it
WCW booking decisions come in clutch for these
Is there a link for this?
Ziggler and Benjamin had really long runs. Almost unheard of actually.
Seriously, what kind of money were these mostly jobbers getting paid?
Crazy how they just letting Ziggler go in the same fashion as some jabroni. He deserved a better send off than that, he’s a Triple Crown champion after all.
Shelton never reached those heights but he deserved better too.
Ali, Ziggler, and Shelton should have a ton of options. If they want to keep wrestling, they shouldn’t have any problem having a job lined up as soon their 90-day no compete expires.
Do you mean an Edge-like send off?
I don't even care if she can wrestle. Somebody put her on TV.
Shit something other than good luck on your future endeavors.
Emma should go back to Impact. She was doing good there. And Moss should follow her.
Top Dolla has NWA world champion written all over him
90 day no compete when they fire you is bull shit
Ali would kill it in New Japan. Get him in that Best of the Super Juniors and just let him cook.
I mean they do get paid so there’s at least that.
Especially since they're classified as independent contractors
Pretty sure they can work if they live in California or Washington. But would forgo the money.
Stay home for 3 months and get paid or go straight to work.......I know what I'd do.
Well WWE done wrapped up that WON award for Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic yet again, will be the 21st time in the last 23 years
For firing people? I think letting a predator like Vince back in is a million times worse.
Disagree that Mox lacked the reaction time. You can see him shout "finish" to the ref when Rey hits the sit down finisher the first time. Knox is just an idiot and didn't count the three, so they had to do it again. I think Mox thought he was more hurt than he was, so he called an audible.
Countinng developmental Ziggler was there continuously since 2004. Probably making 7 figures for the last decade plus.
Shelton Benjamin from 2000-2010 and 2016 to current.
wrestlers should have lifetime jobs obviously
They twice won the award for firing people after announcing record profits. Signing their largest deal ever for Smackdown then mass firing people in the same day while also bringing gate records all over the place falls in line with that.
