WWE Releases Abraham Washington- No More Millions of Dollars!
That’s a wrap, folks.
Abraham Washington, the mouthpiece to the WWE Tag Team the Prime Time Players, has been released by the WWE today, which can be found HERE. Here is the official quote from the WWE:
WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar A.W. as of today, August 10, 2012. WWE wishes A.W. the best in all his future endeavors.
It was on July 30th that Washington made a comment regarding Kobe Bryant and the Colorado incident. That comment inflamed the WWE, which makes his release not too big of a surprise. This led to an explosion on Twitter by A.W, which is rounded up below:
“@TitusONeilWWE & @DarrenYoungWWE thank you for allowing me to speak on your behalf. You guys are the best and I’m glad to call u my friends!
“I’ve offended the wrong people that taught me how to have ATTITUDE It was the #WWE that made me bold and now it has turned it’s back on me
“Let this be a lesson to up and coming talent in the WWE don’t try and be great like the Rock or Stone Cold. WWE isn’t the same…
“Just be normal shut up and be a yes man so you can collect your check and feel like your special. #SELLOUTS!!
“I remember a time when the WWE didn’t care about breaking the mold but now everyone is so afraid of their own shadow. #RemeberTheFans
“Thanks to the fans who showed me support over the whole Kobe thing and to those I upset I apologize again. Remember It’s entertainment folks.”
A.W. then indicates that his termination is tied to WWE chief Vince McMahon’s wife Linda’s pursuit of a United States Senate seat in Connecticut, which many have speculated has led the sports-entertainment organization to steer clear of any controversial matters.
“I really do hope Linda wins that election because If not then all of this BS has been for nothing. #GoLinda!!” he wrote.
