According to 1Wrestling.com

He showed up late to a house show over the weekend, which upset the wrong people. He was released after RAW last night.

I'm more thinking "doesn't he ever learn"? Generally when just starting work for a company, one tries to be on their absolute BEST behavior, especially when you've got a somewhat questionable history.

That was what, 3 weeks? Outside of Buff Bagwell's WWE stint, has there been a shorter one?

What a waste. Of course, he was one of the 20 that was going to participate ont he Battle Royal (like he had a shot). Maybe they can put Eugene in his place.

Geez ... as JR would say, his WWE 2nd stint was "quicker than a hiccup" ...

Wonder how the King feels about this?

Sexay was back?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I imagine King is a little miffed, a bit at the brass, but likely more at Brian. Not everybody gets a second chance in WWE, and King probably stuck his neck out to get Sexay the break. "I swear Vince, the boy has changed, grown up, he won't let you down."

Oh well.

None of them were in the audience.

He seemed to drop the Sexay gimmick in the NWA-TNA as part of a legitimacy angle for his character. He would have had a much better chance of getting over if he was no longer a grandmaster upon his return.

At the very least, he should have been shifted to SmackDown to accompany the dead guy, the voodoo man and the evil republican.

I am sure King had little to do with him being rehired, since they have little to no contact outside of wrestling.

Considering Brian Christopher was one of the last personnel moves by Jim Ross, does his judgement for reclamation projects seem poor? And, if so, why should the company stick out its neck again for a Jim Ross reclamation project in Jeff Hardy? Aren't they only putting themselves in a similar risk position, with the risk being even greater because Hardy would be more than a jobber?



These are desperate times. And desperate times call for desperate measures. Thus, its time to break out the Cubs/White Sox/Red Sox call to put the Kaiser back on the throne.

As with any investment, the risk would be greater but so would the possible rewards.

JR was also instrumental in the reclamation of Eddie Guerrerro, IIRC, so let's judge him on his whole portfolio and not his failures alone.

I'm looking at it more along the lines of guys Jim Ross is signing now that he no longer is in charge of personnel, except to hire specific individuals he thinks should be hired. When JJ Dillon left the job and Jim Ross took it, did JJ decide to hire a few guys afterwards, regardless of whether they fit into the overall plan/philosophy of the company? If not, why should Jim Ross be involving himself in an area that has now been passed to Johnny Ace?

The fault in this argument is that Dillon was leaving for WCW, and Ross is still with the company.

No, it wasn't cocaine at all. It was a body enhancing drug that is legal in the US and illegal in Canada. In his defence, Brian claimed that a friend of Steve Blackman's (who Brian was travelling with as well as Blackman) had put it in his luggage.

As for him getting fired again...when you get a second chance it's kinda wise to you know..show up on time and be humble.

As pathetic as this may seem, I'll put my first mark-out moment here. I was watching an AWA title match between Larry Zybsyko and Greg Gagne and it looked like Gagne was going to take the title off Zybsyko (sp?).
