WWE: Reactions to A.W.’s ReleasePosted on August 11, 2012 by Cassidy Wrestling NewsShare On: Tweet After A.W. (Brian Jossie) was released from the WWE early Friday evening due to his comments about Kobe Bryant on the July 30 edition of RAW as well as over undisclosed comments since then, F4WOnline.com is reporting that the backstage reaction to A.W.’s termination is mostly negative among the Superstars. Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer had a unique take on A.W.’s release, as well A.W.’s ripping in the company, “Vince [McMahon] has no respect for people he bullies and don’t fight back. He hired [Eric] Bischoff, Bret [Hart], Sable, Billy Graham, yet never touched [Bobby] Heenan except for one shot. I doubt [if he even] knows it, but he’s [A.W.] playing it smart in the long run.” Do you think A.W. is ‘playing it smart’ or burning bridges? Post your comments in the box below.
