from PWBTS:

"Rhyno has heat on him within WWE and was sent home before Mondays raw show due to an incident that occured at the post WM PPV party. During the party, which took place at the same hotel the wrestlers and crew were staying, Rhyno smashed a flower pot during an argument with his wife."

They've been doing nothing with Rhyno for months now. Think this could be the catalyst for him finally being released from the company?

What a shame, too. Just when he'd have a shot to possibly have a prominent spot on a PPV (the ECW one), something like this happens.

He smashed a pot. I'm underwhelmed.

Gotta agree with Matt here. He smashed a pot during an argument. Maybe it'll get him a stern warning or some type of performance and/or monetary penalty, but if they were going to fire him for this, then they probably would fire him for no reason at all.

Slower than you can say Jeff Jarrett.

Seriously, though, as others said, he's been used as a jobber on Heat for years, and this is obviously just an easy reason to get rid of him (especially if the rumors of Orton leaving feces in women's bags is true).

Really, I'd rather have him go somewhere where his talents can be at least somewhat appreciated, like TNA or Japan. He wasn't a world-class worker or anything, but he certainly deserved better than what he was getting in WWE.

Well, let's see...

Edge had an affair with another WWE employee (who was tied to yet another WWE employee), yet he's still around and getting the biggest push of his career.

Undertaker no-showed the Hall of Fame and got a huge WrestleMania win the next day.

Roddy Piper told sordid tales of the company's drug problems on a national television show, and he ended up back in Vince McMahon's good graces within 2 years.

Hopefully, breaking a flower pot won't be nearly as serious an offence, even if Rhyno doesn't have as big a name as those other guys.

Two of those things were not done in front of the public let alone on the biggest weekend of the year when talent is supposed to be on their best behavior. Yes it is just a flower pot but what does that show to the advertisers and the Hollywood types the WWE so desperately wants to impress?

As far as his future I don't think he survives this and I don't understand where all this Rhyno love comes from. He is an average at best brawler who has been dead in the watter since the Benoit feud didn't work out. You can toss Rhyno in the same group of guys that just looked good because of the Paul Heyman booking.

But he's OVER. The Gore is more popular than he is, and yet no one else uses the move as a finisher. It's his. And the WWE can't manage to find a role for him when they instead push Chris Masters, Tomko, Orlando, Simon Dean and Maven.

I think it started going downhill for Rhyno when he wasn't pushed as more of an enforcer for Paul Heyman (when he was GM) on Smackdown.

And if that wasn't bad enough, not letting he & Tajiri win the straps, only to have Tajiri win them with Regal a few months later.

Shesh...temper temper. The man beast Rhyno is apparently more beast. They've totally miss used him after he came back from his surgery. He's never found a groove. Maybe releasing him and hiring him back would work. How often does that happen though? I know Eddie and Marty Jannetty(Sp?) come to mind.

Why do people have so much love for Rhyno? I didn't watch ECW, so was he really good in ECW, or was he just smartly booked? Are people really Rhyno fans or do they just think that a Rhyno push would validate the deader-than-Owen-Hart ECW?

The Rhyno love comes from the fact that Rhyno is great. If used properly, he could be one of their better brawlers. Not everyone has to be Benoit, look at the two guys wearing the bigges titles right now. Rhyno is capable of better matches than either one of them.

I pretty much despise ECW and think it did a lot of harm to wrestling. I can't respect a group of people who respect the Sandman. My Rhyno love has nothing to do with ECW, and is in fact in spite of ECW. Only Booker T is as misused.

I gotta wonder how shits-on-a-girls-clothes is not worse than breaks a flowerpot. It may have been in a hotel on WM weekend, but I'm assuming the flowerpot was in a secluded area and not in the lobby. In any case, a firing would be an overreaction but in this company getting injured on the job can get you fired.

edit: Torch says it was the lobby. Oopsie. Anyway, reprimand. Dat's enough.

Edge's spear is pretty much the same thing -- Edge has even swiped the crouching-in-the-corner setup.

And having an over finisher is not the same as being over. Ask Scotty 2 Hotty.

Besides, I think the only reason the Gore is over so much is from months of Heyman screaming "GORE! GORE!" when he was an announcer. Not somuch Rhyno's execution of it.

What? Are you honestly trying to tell me that you think Rhyno is a great wrestler? Honestly?

I don't think Cena is worth anything in the ring but I will take Big Dave's best matches up against Rhynos best which were nothing more then hardcore brawls. Not that I have anything against hardcore brawls it's just well you're call him 'great' and all.


    I pretty much despise ECW and think it did a lot of harm to wrestling. I can't respect a group of people who respect the Sandman. My Rhyno love has nothing to do with ECW, and is in fact in spite of ECW. Only Booker T is as misused.


Personally I think both are just fine where they are now. Booker is an upper mid card guy who you can toss into the title picture and fans will buy it. Rhyno is an over mid carder what more do you want for them to do with him? With his neck problems and size he's not exactly champion material. His time to make an impact was back in '03 when he came back from surgery and like I said they blew it.

It was an irresponsible outburst that makes the company look bad. I think the 'shits-on-a-girls-clothes' you mention is Orton but that's just hearsay and I don't subscribe to the Observer to know if it's true or not. Do you? Lets say for arguments sake that it is. Who is to say that shitting in someone's bag is less wrong then breaking hotel property after fighting with your wife? Personally I they are both things I wouldn't want going on in my company but in the wrestling business one of them is a rib and the other one is a no no.

I don't understand where all this grand conspiracy talk is comming from. If they want to fire Rhyno they don't need an excuse to do so after all he is just Rhyno.

If he gets released at any point, it'll be after the June ECW PPV. It's not like he's getting in the way right now - waiting a few months won't be any different than what they've done with him the past six months or more.

Well, isn't that the point? Most finishing moves in wrestling are notably weak (The People's Elbow, The Worm, The Stinkface, The F-U, The RKO...) but get put over by the announcers as moves that are the deathblow for the opponent.

The announcer gets the move over, the move gets the wrestler over and visa versa.
