Stunt Granny Lunch Conversation – #WWE ‘Future Endeavor Day’

th

Jeremy: So no more releases as of yet.

Kevin: I would have to think it’s ended now unless the rumor mill is true that no one can get a hold of JTG.

Jeremy: HA, poor JTG. Did you realize he was still employed?

Kevin: Yes because I’ve gone thru that roster page too often recently during shows. If I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t know. He doesn’t even make Main Event.

Jeremy: If there was ever a time to replace him wouldn’t it be now? They have Xavier Woods after all.

Kevin: There is no reason to pay someone who can’t even make it to Main Event. JTG should be gone.

Jeremy: Unless he is a trainer behind the scenes? I have no clue what he does as a function for the company.

Kevin: Knowing the inner workings would always help. Maybe he helps choreograph the Funkadactyls routines.

Jeremy: Saw Chris post that he hasn’t had one match this year. What a great way to make money.

Kevin: More reasons to can the guy unless he’s doing something else for them. I bet he’s the mole who is giving TNA the scoop on the WWE’s story lines.

Jeremy: Then he is the worst possible mole ever. I have always figured TNA’s “mole” was the TYV in the office. “Hey look what they are doing. We should do that.”

Kevin: I can’t wait to see what they try to replicate tonight. Hold on, weren’t we talking about everyone who got canned? We haven’t mentioned any of them yet.

Jeremy: Oh yeah, well it sort of goes hand in hand. Some of these people could end up in TNA.

Kevin: If TNA is smart, they’ll stay away simply because more rip off jokes will follow. I know some of them might be useful with re-packaging but none of them are so good that they’ll drag TNA out of the dregs.

Jeremy: Out of the list of the released Evan Bourne will probably end up in ROH again or Dragon Gate USA. He is too talented for this to be the end of his career.

Kevin: He should land on his feet. No one else will care about the pot smoking. The rash of injuries usually subsides at some point. Hell, once brittle Fred Taylor even had a string of injury free years for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jeremy: His injuries were from a car accident as well and then a string of “bad luck.” Regardless he has immediate merchandise potential as I have said since WWE called him up. TNA should take a look but they won’t.

Kevin: He’s the only guy I wouldn’t blame them for picking up. I’d be disappointed in him if he did that though. Everyone in wrestling has to know it’s a black hole.

Jeremy: At this time though if they come calling you sort of have to listen and at least consider it. Drew Mcintyre can still make a go of things.

Jeremy: Allow me to interrupt this conversation for breaking news: JTG has been released.

So this is Christmas?

Happier times.

And what has WWE done:

World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of WWE SmackDown Superstar Kaval (Brandon Silvestry) as of today, December 23, 2010. We wish Kaval the best in all future endeavors.

Fuck the heck?

Serena’s Gone, One More Round, Serena’s Gone

Yeah, no, it'll be great! Shave your head! We're totally not going to fire you any time soon. We swear and stuff.

According to Figure Four Weekly:

Serena of the Straight Edge Society.

This decision was made several days ago but I guess just got out today.

So I can’t say I’m like super angry about this or anything, it’s just really weird. She was being pushed, she just received a fairly high profile win this past week on Smackdown, and things seemed to be going pretty smooth for her. I have no idea how this came about, so I’ll be interested in hearing more details if/when they become available.

In the meantime, it’s a story about a chick so it’s probably good for a thousand views by itself. – Dusty

Daniel Bryan Released? (Update #3)

David Blaine might have just used his street magic powers to make Daniel Bryan disappear.

Unlike anything Matt Hardy has ever been involved in in his big fat useless life, this is a possible work I am actually interested in. From WWE.com:

WWE has come to terms on the release of NXT first season rookie Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) as of today June 11, 2010. We wish Daniel Bryan the best in all future endeavors.

This is potentially a part of the NXT Invasion Angle. We here at Stunt Granny will keep you abreast of the situation. Huh huh huh, I said “breast.” – Dusty

UPDATE: From Meltzer:

The people who needed to know were told that Bryan Danielson was fired for choking ring announcer Justin Roberts with his tie during the angle on Monday night. That shot was edited from replays of the show. It’s not known why this would lead to someone getting fired and from all accounts, Danielson was described as the type of person you want a dressing room filled with.

The choking with a tie was described as being too violent for what is allowed on WWE television.

UPDATE PART 2: Gabe Sapolsky put as his Facebook status “It’s not a work”.

Someday I hope it’s explained to me why WWE made this ridiculous, IQ lowering decision.

Update Part 3: According to Prowrestling.net, John Cena is as upset as the rest of the online WWE fans about the release of Bryan Danielson aka Daniel Bryan. It looks like Dusty was correct to assume that this firing was a work in the first place because Cena wouldn’t comment on something like this without the company’s permission. Cena going against the company would be like Matt Hardy turning down a ho ho buffet. – Kevin

Peace Out Eric Escobar

He's the one wearing glasses.

According to WWE.com:

WWE has come to terms on the release of Smackdown superstar Eric Escobar as of Jan. 17, 2010. WWE wishes Eric all the best in his future endeavors.

So long, Eric. I’ll never forget… actually, yes. I will forget everything about you, pretty much immediately. You were really really bad. – Dusty
