UPDATED: WWE Releases Brad Maddox Over Dark Match Promo

November 25, 2015 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

UPDATE: PWInsider reports that Brad Maddox’s release happened because of language that he used during his promo before his dark match at the Smackdown taping last night. Maddox used the phrase “cocky pricks,” which upset WWE officials and led to the decision to release him.

ORIGINAL: WWE has announced that they’ve released Brad Maddox. Maddox has been on the main roster since 2012, first working as a referee and then becoming the General Manager of Raw after Vickie Guerrero was removed from the position. After being “fired” as GM in May of last year, he had been on and off TV and worked house shows and dark matches in different personas; his last match for the company was a dark match at the Smackdown taping last night, where he lost to R-Truth.

WWE’s statement follows the format of their standard “release” statements: “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Brad Maddox as of Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2015. WWE wishes Maddox the best in all of his future endeavors.”
