A.W. Reveals That WWE Fire Him For the Linda McMahon Tweet & Not the Kobe Bryant Rape Joke

We noted earlier that former WWE talent AW spoke with CTPost.com about his release and says he was fired for last week’s Linda McMahon tweet.

In an interesting tidbit from that interview, he revealed that he received a phone call last Friday from WWE executive Jane Geddes informing him of the release. This shows that Geddes is now handling the departures. Previously that was a duty of John Laurinaitis but as we have noted, Laurinaitis lost many of his duties to new Triple H hires and recently lost the job of VP of Talent Relations.
