Negative Reaction Among WWE Wrestlers To A.W.’s Firing; Could He Be Rehired?

Wrestler reaction to A.W.’s firing by WWE on Friday for what a company spokesman said was due to his continued use of offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on social media after making a rape joke on the July 30 episode of Raw is said to be as negative to any termination in a long time.

Upon learning of the news, A.W. posted a barrage of Twitter messages roasting the sports-entertainment organization for what he perceives are double standards, such as Big Show making a similar remark referencing NBA player Kobe Bryant’s sexual assault case years ago and Vince McMahon reneging WWE’s anti-bullying campaign on Raw weeks ago by ridiculing Jim Ross’ affliction with Bell’s palsy. Though it would appear that he is squashing any chance of a return to the organization with each scathing tweet, Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer sees things otherwise.

He posted on the F4WOnline.com message board, “The more he says, the better his chances of being brought back in a while.

“Vince has no respect for people he bullies and don’t fight back.

“He hired Bischoff, Bret (spent ten years begging for him to comeback and even brought him back after Bret walked out on him the day of Mania), Sable, Billy Graham, yet never touched Heenan except for one shots. I doubt even he knows it but he’s playing it smart in the long run.”

    This is the beginning of the end of heels in WWE. Every heel is going to be scared of doing something thats not PG and getting fired.

    i dont see the big deal about aw getting canned. its not like he did anything memorable UNTIL the raw comment. to me its no loss. he brought nothing so i dont give a fuck. also the pg thing just isnt about linda’s senate run, its also for the sponsors. theyre raking in the money from sponsors gearing towards family. theyre a business 1st and foremost. the pg era is here for a long haul so get used to it

    It’s sad that we live in a society where people get their jollys off by acting appalled. People in entertainment say things to entertain. I’m sure AW and the comedians in recent news had no cruel intentions when making their comments.

    Orton will never get fired, matter fact anybody who is in the popular table is safe.

  • Alex

    @kayPaxs That is unless he fails another drugs test.

  • desconosido

    They fired him but had a thing 4 Charlie sheen

  • peter

    next raw we all need to tweet
    #aworweriot

  • Richard

    Ironically, I think A.W. is going to end up getting his job back. I at least hope so.

  • Diesel

    They release the only guy that has charisma, personality, potential, and the ability to talk. He could also crack a joke and not be corny, unlike every cena segment since 2005.

    @Adam wich is why we still have these chicken shit cowardly heels its because wwe is too scared to actually have there heels cross the line to become actuall villans so the only way they can get them heat is by making them cowards i dont mean to sound like a mark who cant let the past go but remember when wwe werent afraid to let guys like triple h piper and slauther actualy be real evil villans for god sake they let sarg burn a american flag on tv as punk would say: wwe take your balls out of your purse already

  • RCmaster305

    and if bryan can chock josh with a tie and still comeback im sure AW will be back soon especially with all the support he is getting from the boys its not like they can be mad at him for the twitter rant when it is the truth

  • bork lazer

    Get off the Caps Kid!! Nobodys gonna read ur post anyway!

    As for you guys saying “New guys cant bring heat without crossing limits”.. well look at Brock. He doesnt talk much on the Mic but his actions turned him from a face to a heel as soon as he debuted! It went from “We Want Lesnar” chants to “You Suck Lesnar” in a jiffy. Theres more ways to bring heat than to say something stupid on the Mic especially in this shitty PG era.

  • Joseph

    The release of AW did not bother me at all. I found him too annoying and he distracted from the matches.
