It’s a now acquainted sample. After WWE pronounces a wave of expertise releases, we get a wave of barely smaller gracious, grateful messages from the expertise about their time with the corporate, and the way a lot we followers imply to them. They shut with a vow that the perfect is but to return.
Cassie “Peyton Royce” McIntosh is the most recent:
Thanks, Peyton. It was a blast watching you remodel from any person I’d thought I’d seen on a Shimmer present one time to a performer who persistently entertained me whenever you confirmed up on NXT, Uncooked, or SmackDown. Wanting ahead to no matter comes subsequent for you.
Close to these statements? Whereas there’s some a part of me that will pop for any person tagging Vince McMahon & crew with only a GIF of a Stone Chilly salute, it’s in all probability not going to occur. And whereas it’s shitty Peyton, or Samoa Joe, or any launched wrestler didn’t get to fundamental occasion WrestleMania or have a prolonged run with a high singles belt en route an Undertaker-esque lifetime contract, they did get to stay their dream, and they’re extra marketable now than they had been earlier than they labored for the most important firm within the historical past of the wrestling enterprise. A number of them would return to work for WWE, and a few of them will.
They’re heartfelt and so they’re good enterprise. They let the expertise and their followers have a second to understand one another. I’ll by no means look ahead to seeing them, however I can’t ever be mad at them.
Right here’s wishing the perfect for Royce, and everybody who misplaced their job yesterday.
