— A lot of wrestlers in WWE were surprised to hear about Matt Hardy being let go. There is a general feeling that since Rhyno broke a planter in the lobby of the company hotel at WrestleMania, his release was expected. However, people were more surprised by Hardy’s release. The word going around right now is that he was fired largely because of his online commentary on the situation between himself, Lita, and Edge. Some feel that the company is crossing a line into holding what wrestlers do in their personal lives against them. One source is saying the company didn’t like that a close associate of Hardy’s was the one who spread the story to the media at first.
— With five people already let go in the last week, there is some worry amongst the talent that there will be more post-WrestleMania cuts in the near future.
