According to Meltzer:

"Crash Holly has also been officially terminated by WWE."

I won't rant and rave anout them being bastards for firing him, but I'm sorry to see the little guy go. The MFer thing was a good gimmick for him. Here's hoping he thrives at whatever he chooses to do next.

Ah, I remember his debut, getting into a fistfight with his cousin Bob. Too bad.

I guess since Crash was causing a system failure on the Windows Mattitude Player, the WWE uninstalled him.

But ... but ... who will review the movies?!

Crash is gone. Man, he was good. Sad to see him go. The super-heavyweight gimmick was great stuff. Isn't he the most decorated WWE hardcore champ?

Edit: [Nope, according to Solie.org, Raven had the belt 25 times.]

i'm gonna miss Crsah *deletes; retypes* Crash.

I too was digging the MF'er deal. The thing where he was lining the ring with WWE magazines the other week was hilarious.

The man has definitely been loyal to WWE all these years. I know during his time off though he was actually working bouncing gigs on the side.

If he does decide to go on the indy scene though, I wish him the best of luck.

It's not yet on WWE.com. Did he mention why he was released? "Terminated" makes it seem like he did something wrong, rather than WWE deciding to break up Team Mattitude and having nothing to do with Crash.

Crash is one of those guys who are probably better off wrestling in gyms rather than arenas. It kinda sucks when you consider that he was getting pretty good at the Moore-on gimmick. I would say that there is probably a good possibility that he'll end up in TNA at some point.

At least Shannon Moore and Kanyon are safe for now.

THANK GOD!!!! Nobody else here agrees (so far) but BY GAWWWWD I hated him. Plus, he totally uncooled the entire Mattitude thing. He sucks, he's boring, annoying, the works. I bet he ain't really fired though. Bah.

My guess is that it's a mainly a cost-cutting move similar to the D-lo situation. A JTTS that's best days are far behind him. He was never insanely over. And I agree that he iddnt fit in with the Mattitude phenomena.

Hah hah, Gold. That Titantron was hilarious.
He was definitely humorous to watch at times..but that's pretty much it(that and 'ruining' the hardcore division, some would argue). It was going to happen eventually, I just have to wonder why it took so long, unfortunately. I wish him well though.

He is still listed up on the WWE site, as I type. I don't know if they just haven't gotten to deleting him.

I wasn't a fan of Crash's Mattitude gimmick, but I liked his reign as Hardcore champ. And I also liked when he teamed up with cousin Bob.

Too bad for him, but I won't miss him. I don't think he did anything for the Mattitude gimmick either. His role would be better served by someone like Kanyon. Matt and Shannon need a bigger guy to serve as an enforcer, and Kanyon is big enough to fit the bill.

I'll miss him being the 24-7 paranoid Hardcore champion...ah memories. Ok, I thought I had a tear in my eye. Just a little bit of glare off my screen causing me to squint.

Although I never really thought much of him, and pretty much regarded him as just another name on the roster, you have to kind of feel bad for him. He's always been right on the edge (as far as job security goes). He then got the MF'er gimmick. He must have thought that his job was safe for now. And now he's been let go.

And if they were gonna' get rid of a Holly, it could have at least been Bob.

Crash is a decent little wrestler but totally bland. He should fit in well in Ring Of Honor.

He did a lot with the 24/7 gimmick, he was really did the most with it. But once he got into wrestling, he was good but nothing too spectacular and when your his size and look it's very difficult.

I never got into his MFer character, it just seemed to come out of nowhere and didn't really add anything just a smaller Shannon Moore.

I've always heard he was a major fan of the wobbly pops and even came to autograph secessions and work a little off... WWE even made a storyline about it with him loving liquor and messing up stuff making him and cousin Bob lose and Bob Holly getting angry with him, that storyline lasted all of 2 weeks.

Ah, yes. That was fun, wasn't it? I think, if you're going to introduce a character out of nowhere, having him get powerbombed on top of a semi is as good a way as any.

Anyway, this made today interesting if only for my reaction reading the news sites: "Hogan's gone, eh? Meh, ah well. I won't really miss him at a... CRASH! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHY, GOD? WHYYYYYYYYYY?"



Then I yelled "SANDORAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!", but that's not really anything to do with wrestling.

That's a shame. He was always fun to watch, especially at house shows. I thought his MF'er gimmick was pretty funny. I liked how he always climbed the ropes one-by-one to get into the ring. I think the problem with him not getting over and being kinda bland points back to the cruiserweight division not getting pushed enough. Of course he's bland when he jobs to A-Train every week. If the cruiserweight division had been pushed more, that would've probably led to an increased role for him.

I saw him in a match with Shannon Moore, or it might have been Hurrican Helms, I think a year or so ago on one of the syndicated weekend shows. He was wrestling "cruiserweight" style. And it was AWESOME! But he rarely used that style, I always thought he was more entertaining with that style than using, "Big man" style as he did most of the time. He was doing hurricanranas and everything that night. I guess he will be in TNA soon.
