Shit, Shane just quit. That makes Stephanie and Triple H next in line for the company when Vince dies. Perfect..
Quit, as in storyline quit? So he'll come back later with some washed up and supposedly retired wrestler to reinvent them and take on his dad. That sounds the most likely option. Very dramatic, with closeups of McMahon's furious face at the end of the programme to show how much he's pissed off or something. (I'm just guessing, I have no idea what storylines are going on nowadays.)
Although I watched 5 minutes of Smackdown the other week, that CM Punk twat was saying how great he was and how he deserved a title shot because he was the most epic wrestler of all time. Then I turned it off.
No, quit as in quit.
Heres what he said.
"It is with great sadness that I announce my resignation from the WWE, effective January 1, 2010.
I have never even considered a future outside the walls of the WWE. However, sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and while it is the most difficult decision I have ever made, it is time for me to move on.
First and foremost, I would like to thank my father for the incredible education working with him has provided and for giving me the opportunity to play a role in building WWE into the global phenomenon that it is today. I am extremely proud to have been the 4th generation in this business, and I am grateful for everyday I was able to work along side not only my own, but the entire WWE family.
Thank you to all of the WWE Superstars both past and present for your passion, pride and dedication. You are truly the engine of the organization and it has been a pleasure to work with, learn from and get to know all of you. Thank you for the privilege of sharing the stage with you and for allowing me to become but a momentary member of your elite brotherhood. I have so much appreciation for the many sacrifices you endure, both physically and personally, to make this business the success that it is. The respect I have for each of you is immeasurable.
Finally, there are no words to express my gratitude to WWE fans the world over for supporting this company through good times and bad and for your unbridled passion that fuels the Superstarsí performances. I am profoundly grateful to have been able to entertain you both in front of the camera and from behind the scenes. You are the greatest fans in the world.
I will always love this business and will remain a fan forever.
EDIT:And to make matters worse, a main eventer in WWE has bragged to friends about taking marijuana.
"One main event WWE star has boasted to friends about failing for marijuana 14 times. This particular wrestler hasn't faced the same scrutiny from management as some of the mid-carders whose pushes were stopped due to repeated test failures. However, the fine for failing for pot was recently levied from $1,000 to $2,500 and it has him thinking twice.
Like many wrestlers in the company, he is now using a product sold at head shops (retail outlet specializing in drug paraphernalia related to consumption of cannabis and other recreational drugs) which gives off a similar effect as marijuana, but is legally sold and does not show up in drug tests."
I reckon its Orton. Hes failed many drug tests and is known to smoke.
