There will definitely be some backstage heat on Edge and Lita in some circles within WWE due to the release of Matt Hardy. When it comes down to it, Hardy was simply the guy who WWE could afford to lose to lessen the tension between the trio. WWE is in the process if trying to make Edge their next big star. Management has not always been super high on Hardy’s interviews either and felt that oft he two guys, Edge was more marketable. Management is also not high on the internet and the news that revolves around it regarding WWE and it didn’t help at all for Matt to make the situation public, or confirm reports that had been posted. Lita and Edge were looked at by management as the two who never took the situation public and kept it very low profile.
Rhyno’s release isn’t going to sit well with some inner circles within WWE either. Rhyno did create a scene in the hotel lobby and gave WWE an excuse to get rid of him. WWE management was never high on his look or in ring style either. He has been going through some tough times the last several months including a separation from his wife. She is planning to move to Germany and will be taking his daughter. This now leaves him jobless during the tough times. Rhyno could wind up with TNA as well, although he would work under a different name.
