RD Evans shares his version of events.
On Apr. 11 it was reported that writer RD Evans had been fired from WWE over Bret Hart's Hall of Fame speech. Evans reportedly helped Hart with his speech and made the mistake of including Vince McMahon's name in the script. It was later reported that Evans actually quit the company after finding out McMahon was upset over the speech. In a statement on social media, Evans said, "I quit WWE."
Evans had gone silent on social media since the incident, but returned last night, posting a video showing his version of events and looking for work. Evans has also changed his nickname to "Quitman," referencing Bret Hart and his "Hitman" moniker.

In the video, Evans is censored from saying the name "Vince McMahon" even in his real life. He declares that he will wrestle for food before deciding he will only wrestle Orange Cassidy for food. Road Dogg would apparently hate that match.
Road Dogg stepped down from his position as lead writer on SmackDown following WrestleMania weekend.
Before transitioning to the writing team, Evans did have a good run on the Independent scene working for ROH and CHIKARA among other companies.
