As reported earlier, Rob Conway, Too Cold Scorpio and Vito were recently released from their WWE contracts. These are considered part of Stephanie McMahon’s house cleaning moves to show that she’s putting her stamp on the roster now that John Laurinaitis reports to her, not Vince McMahon, on a daily basis. She has a much greater influence on roster moves than before, as unless it’s someone on the top third of the card, Vince is probably going to rubberstamp any roster decision she makes. That wasn’t the case with John Laurinaitis’ recommendations to Vince in the past.
Ariel’s profile was quickly removed from ECW.com after it was announced that she was being let go. Strangely, Scotty 2 Hotty’s profile is still up on WWE.com at the moment.
