In recent months, the Coronavirus emergency has caused a pandemic and a real economic crisis in all sectors. Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has also seen its finances heavily damaged by this virus and the Stamford company has been forced to fire some of its most famous characters.
Recently, the company fired several wrestlers including names such as the Bulgarian wrestler Rusev, and former United States and Intercontinental Champion Zack Ryder. The dismissal of Kurt Angle, one of the legends of the Federation and that of Mike Chioda, a well-known referee of the WWE, too has accounted for sensational decisions by Vince McMahon's company.
How Were Rusev and Zack Ryder Sacked?
Rusev and Ryder were at the receiving end of a curious curtain on social networks. Answering questions from fans Rusev made it clear that he was fired through a call from the WWE offices (a way considered quite polite to fire one of the most loved characters in recent times) and commenting on his post, Ryder said he was also removed in the same manner.
On Twitter, the exchange played out in this manner. A fan asked Rusev, "Yo Rusev come on man how u get fired?" To this, Rusev quote-tweeted his reply and said, "By receiving a text to call the office." Replying to this tweet, Ryder, who uses his real name Matt Cardona on the social media site, commented, "Haha you too?" Finally, once again quoting his reply to Ryder's tweet, Rusev said, "Whoever have a job step forward.
Miro and Matt where are y’all going!" Rusev and Zack Ryder are currently bound by the 90-day non-compete clause. It's said to expire on 15th July and thereafter the two will be free agents who can join any company. Rusev and Ryder haven't announced any of their future moves yet.
