• Longtime WWE Employee Reveals Why He Told Vince McMahon To Fire Him

During a recent interview on Total Engagement, longtime WWF/E music composer Jim Johnston talked about WWE beginning to use CFO$ for their music instead of him and this led to him asking Vince McMahon to fire him.

Below is what Jim said:

“I don’t want a job where I don’t have to work. There wasn’t ever a millisecond where I thought, ‘Wow, isn’t this great? I’m really not doing that much music, but they’re continuing to pay me! Oh my God, what a great deal!’ It was awful. I hate that. I hated that feeling.

I’ve got handcuffs on, I can’t contribute and I eventually told Vince that as well. I said, ‘this is not right.’ I also told him at the time is like, ‘hey, if you’re unhappy with me, fire me. Fire me right now. You can fire me right now. I’m taking the pressure off. Go ahead. Fire me.’ Because that’s not the way I roll. I don’t like that.”

Jim was asked about possibly working with All Elite Wrestling in the future and below is what he said:

“Sure, absolutely. Give me a call.”
