WWE News: Rusev Reveals How He Got Released, Shad Gaspard's Death Acknowledged

-- In response to a fan who asked him how he got fired by WWE, Rusev noted that he received a text message asking him to call the office. Zack Ryder and No Way Jose, both of whom were also released at the same time, indicated that they received the same instructions.

-- WWE acknowledged the late Shad Gaspard on their NXT broadcast yesterday, showing a graphic along with the words "In Memory of Shad Gaspard 1981-2020." Some fans wondered why the company didn't make any mention of him on Monday's Raw and a source noted that it was simply because at that time, despite the odds, there was no official confirmation that he had passed away.
