More On Test’s Firing, Even More On Talent Cuts, Vince McMahon; More

Ryan Clark


SmackDown! last night did a 3.8 rating on the overnight markets. It seems that the debut of The O.C. on Fox didn’t hurt Smackdown the way some had thought it would.

We are being told that the talent cuts are being done directly from Talent Relations. Most of the company’s employees are finding out people are released when they read it on WWE.com. Vince McMahon decides who will be cut and then calls Johnny Ace. Ace’s department then makes the calls to the wrestlers and informs them of their releases.

Several WWE sources have told us they were not surprised to see Test go because as one person put it, “Triple H has been out to get Test for years”.

There is a story on WWE.com about Harley Race being backstage at Smackdown this past week.
