No One Gets Fired. Everyone Fires Themselves
Serena got canned this week for partying while Straight Edge. In an effort to preserve the gimmick of one of their top stars, the WWE wanted Serena to keep the fast life on the down low.

While Bowden wanted to pursue 400 wins, Florida State wanted to re-energize a lethargic football program that had slipped in Bowden’s last six seasons.
