You're Fired

Not quite as effective as Vince's "You're fired"

On Raw recently WWE COO Triple H (who that's a lot of letters) fired R-Truth and the Miz.  In fact, just like when Bobby "the Brain" Heenan got fired from the WWF (he was leaving for WCW) and tossed from the building by Gorilla Monsoon, Awesome Truth had a similar fate.

But I think we all know that Miz and Ron Killings aren't going to show up on TNA anytime soon.  Or ROH or even in my beloved AAPW (cheap plug).  I think most of us know that these "firings" just like Kevin Nash's are part of the storyline.

The WWE could probably have pulled this angle off a little better had they not gone on to their website and posted reaction from other Superstars about the releases.  And now there is an interview on the site with the Miz's mom, reacting to her son's termination.  Of course this has never happened with any other future endeavoured star, so as a fan are we really supposed to believe the firings are legit?

At least the WWE did take the step of removing the bios of the Miz and R-Truth from dot com.  Hopefully creative will keep them off TV for a bit (at least until the next pay per view which is less than 2 weeks away) to sell this.  Remember last year when John Cena was "fired", but was on Raw every week?  It just made that angle suck even more.
