Good evening folks, EWNCW anchorman Dick Thompson here with an EWNCW exclusive!
EWNCW management have announced the release of both Captain Amazing and The Flying Dutchman. Both talents had been relegated to jobber status as of late, and both were released by EWNCW following the Bred for Combat ppv. EWNCW would like to wish both men the best in all future endeavors.
We also have an update on 3 other EWNCW talents.
Hanz Gruber was seen quitting EWNCW at Bred for Combat. We can confirm that the departure is legitimate, and not part of a storyline. Gruber asked for his release just one week before the Bred for Combat ppv, which is why the decision was made to have Gruber drop the Rage Ignition Championship to The Blue Flash. They then decided to run the quitting angle to write Gruber out of EWNCW. We're told that Gruber decided to ask to finish up due to personal reasons, and we're told that EWNCW management have left the door widely open for a future return.
2 other talents were seemingly written out of EWNCW at Bred for Combat.
Firstly Billy McCoy. We understand that EWNCW have released Billy McCoy, which is why the injury angle with Arthur Lansdale was run on the ppv.
We also understand that The Beard of Zeus has been released by EWNCW, which is why he was also involved in a brutal injury angle with Shaz.
We hear that both Billy McCoy and The Beard of Zeus have been traveling together recently and were both involved in several incidents that lead to them arriving to EWNCW very late. There are rumors that these incidents involved drinking and that both men had been turning up to shows late after being at bars. These rumors are NOT confirmed though.
All that's confirmed is that both talents have been released by EWNCW. However, we understand that EWNCW management have again left the door open for a return if both men, given their hard working past with the company. Billy McCoy is a former International Champion and was in line for big things, while The Beard of Zeus is a former World Heavyweight Champion and a former multi-time tag team Champion as part of the legendary tag team and stable God Money, and was a cornerstone of the main event scene on the Rage brand.
So to confirm, both The Beard of Zeus and Billy McCoy have been released from EWNCW. EWNCW would like to wish both men the best in all future endeavors.
On another note, EWNCW management have announced that they have signed an unnamed top star to the company! We don't have any details on who it is, all we know is that it's a top star that will bring even more star power to EWNCW. We'll bring you more on this story as we get it!
One final update to bring you! We previously reported that Mr Grind_Bastard had stepped down as head writer of the Inferno show, but was open to taking up a lighter role on the creative team. We can now confirm that Mr Bastard has accepted the role as writer of the Warzone show. Friday night Warzone has endured an uncertain and unbalanced time with writers coming and going with the show. However, the show has shown a lot of potential based on the latest shows. EWNCW management are confident that Mr Bastard is the right man to bring stability to the show. There is talk that the day the show goes out might be changed to accommodate Mr Bastard's schedule, with Tuesday being pegged as the new day of the show.
That concludes tonight's news round up!! As always, stay tuned for the latest folks, and you stay classy EWNCW!
