FATP: My reaction to AW being fired

Normally, I don’t do weekend or breaking news columns, but something’s happened in the last 24 hours that made me feel like I had to sit down and get my thoughts out. Yesterday, WWE announced that they’d come to terms with the release of AW (Abraham Washington) and wished him all the best in his future endeavours. For those of you who don’t know the story, here goes. On the first “non-special” three-hour Raw on July 30th, Titus O’Neil was in a match with Kofi Kingston. AW (as Titus’ manager),Read More
- AW says he, Darren Young and Titus O’Neil are supporting Linda McMahon in her 2012 Senate campaign. He wrote on Twitter last night: “#AWPromotio$ says vote for Linda McMahon!!!

- A three-way WWE Tag Team Title match with Kofi Kingston and R-Truth vs. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young vs. Primo and Epico may end up on the WWE SummerSlam card.

- A fan in attendance at last night’s WWE live event in Jackson, Mississippi reports that either Mike DiBiase or Brett DiBiase worked the show as a referee. It’s likely Brett as he has worked for WWE developmental as a referee in the past. Brett and Mike are the brothers to injured WWE star Ted DiBiase. DiBiase’s appearance came during the WWE Tag Team Title match with Darren Young and Titus O’Neil vs. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth. Young and O’Neil hit their finishers to win the tag titles until DiBiseRead More
