On June 2, WWE released talent from the company for the third straight month. WWE has cited "budget cuts" as the reason for releasing talent over the past 14 months.
Karl Anderson, who was released in April 2020, has some advice for those giving out "thanks" after being released.
"We know what it's like to get canned from WWE. Here's the advice I would say; enough of the 'thank you' tweets. Give me a fucking break. When you get canned, let it go. How about hashtag 'fuck off.' I don't think less than 24 hours after being fired...take a second to take a breather. Take it easy with the thank you bullshit within 24 hours. Breathe it in and take it all in for just one second. Put together a plan of attack before you start thanking all these motherfuckers that fired you because...people give Jim Ross a lot of heat, but I have respect for Jim Ross because, when we got canned, he said, 'There's a reason why WWE decided to not do business with these individuals anymore.' It's as true as it can get and Thank God. We made the most money we've ever made in our lives this past year and that's after WWE," said Anderson on Talk N Shop.
Anderson & Doc Gallows signed with IMPACT Wrestling once their 90-day non-compete clauses expired. They are also featured regularly on AEW television and have been able to run their Talk N Shopamania events.
