Earlier today the WWE cut ten superstars including two former tag team champions and a man with 16 years of service at the company.
There could be more cuts to come, but so far, WWE has terminated the contracts of Aksana, former Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long, Brodus Clay, Yoshi Tatsu, Evan Bourne, Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Curt Hawkins and referee Marc Harris.
A few of the released wrestlers have been making statements via social media. Brodus Clay said on Twitter that now “greatness is on him” after his release. Curt Hawkins made light of the situation, tweeting “My worst nightmare has come true… I now have to start paying for my own wrist tape again! s–t. Now, who wants me on their show this weekend?”
Mark Henry, still employed with the WWE, took to Twitter to let everyone know it’s been eighteen years and he’s still collecting a paycheck from the WWE. Probably not the best thing to tweet out, considering ten of his former coworkers (including Teddy Long, who once managed Henry) are now out of work.
Curt Hawkins took offense to Henry’s statement and made a statement of his own.
Agreed. You’re an idiot, Mark.
