Steve Cutler was launched by WWE final week after Vince McMahon was reportedly upset with him testing optimistic for COVID-19 after attending a New 12 months’s Eve celebration.
Deonna Purrazzo, his girlfriend, later got here out with a collection of tweets addressing the scenario. It seems that there’s extra to this story as his departure nixed a storyline on the SmackDown model.
Dave Meltzer famous on immediately’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE had plans to do a six-man feud that might see Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, and Murphy in opposition to Baron Corbin and his Knights of the Lone Wolf (Cutler & Wesley Blake). When Cutler was fired, WWE needed to nix the storyline and now Blake nor Murphy doesn’t have a spot on TV in the mean time. Cutler can also be the one WWE star to be fired as a consequence of testing optimistic for COVID-19.
Meltzer famous that Cutler initially had a spot and Bryan Alvarez identified how the Knights of the Lone Wolf have been on TV for 2 weeks earlier than they disappeared. Meltzer famous the rationale they disappeared from TV was as a consequence of Cutler testing optimistic.
“He’s [Cutler] out, he’s now a free agent. He [Murphy] isn’t getting used as a result of there isn’t a spot for him. They booked him into this factor with Aalyah and now they haven’t discovered how get out of it. It was gonna be Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio, and Murphy in opposition to Corbin, Wesley Blake, and Steve Cutler. Nicely, you’re taking Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler out then there’s no spot for Murphy until you wanna make these Dominik Mysterio matches three on 1 as a substitute of two on 1. They determined to go along with the two on 1.”
