WWE Reportedly Fires Superstar, Hall of Famer Comments

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross announced on his Twitter this afternoon that Shad Gaspard has been “future endeavored” by WWE.

Although Ross’ use of “future endeavored” in that context, normally a comedic play on the fact that WWE always publicly wishes released Superstars the best in their future endeavors, is odd for something serving as an official statement, Ross has not wavered from the claim that the release is legitimate.

Also unusual was Ross’ commentary on the issue: “He certainly has decernable physical attributes & I hope he discovers best in ring persona.” Discernable (or discernible) is spelled incorrectly, and one would have to solely point to the Twitter character limit in justifying, “I hope he discovers best in ring persona.”

Ross added, “I hate to see any one lose work but the Cryme Tyme team had run its course imo. If Shad wants it badly enough he will be fine.”
