Triple H issued the following statement regarding this:
“Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talent received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with WWE.”

Mickie went on to issue a final statement on this matter:
“I would like to address this one last time, then we can all move on. I have so many amazing things on the horizon. The last thing I desire it to have any of that tainted with ugliness and negativity.
I take zero pride of joy in the fact that someone would lose their job ever. Especially someone I considered a friend. I am confident that Vince & the McMahons had no idea that this is how we were sent packing.
It hurt a fragile me much more 10 years ago when my belongings arrived on my doorstep, because WWE was my everything. I’ve grown as a woman and a person as much as we all have in this business.
I am stronger today than I’ve ever been and smart enough to know that it wasn’t a deliberate attack on me. However, the symbolism can not be denied.
I am sorry that a thoughtless and tone deaf act would cost anyone their job. But I am not sorry that I had the courage to ensure it will never happen to anyone else moving forward.
So if that’s my final mark in this company moving forward I am ok with that. When I first started in this business one of the best pieces of advice I received was, ‘Just leave the business better than you found it kid’ and that has always been my ultimate goal.
I love you all so much. I am legitimately grateful for my time at WWE and throughout my whole career. I am looking forward to everything that is next. I truly hope you are too and perhaps you will join me.
Sincerely and Humbly Yours, Mickie Laree James-Aldis”

• Old School NWA Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Old School NWA Legend Lou Thesz would have celebrated his 105th birthday today.
Lou Thesz is considered one of the greatest pure technical mat wrestlers of all time. Some might even argue he was the greatest.
If you combine all of Thesz’s 3 NWA World Heavyweight Championship reigns, he was the Champ for more than 10 years combined.
In 2016, he was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their 1st annual “Legacy” wing inductions.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & R.I.P.
