• Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Reportedly Fired For Getting New Tattoos & Backstage Attitude
As we noted before, WWE released the following names yesterday:
– Tye Dillinger
– Hideo Itami
While Dillinger & Itami asked for their releases, TJP’s release came as a shock to him.
According to BodySlam, TJP was fired because of the new tattoos he got and his backstage attitude.
For those who don’t know, WWE talent are supposed to take permission from WWE officials if they plan to get new tattoos or have long hair and want to cut it (as seen in the case of Baron Corbin, who had to wait until he was finally granted permission to shave his head) as that’s necessary if the talent is a part of WWE video games or has WWE action figures.
On the other hand, TJP was also said to be someone who was difficult to work with, both with wrestlers and higher ups in WWE.
