On this date in WWE history: Eric Bischoff is fired, F-U'ed and dumped in a garbage truck

When it came time to relive Eric Bischoff of his duties on this date in WWE history, Vince McMahon came up with the most spectacular way he could possibly do so.

On December 5, 2005, Eric Bischoff was put on trial by Vince McMahon and subsequently "fired" as General Manager for his long history of "unscrupulous actions" in pro wrestling, which in reality was to get him off television so that he could write his book, Controversy Creates Cash.

Of course no McMahon firing would be complete without the usual on-air humiliation, so in addition to getting future endeavored, Bisch then gets F-U'ed by John Cena and thrown into a garbage truck where he is promptly compacted and driven out of the arena on Monday Night RAW.

Good times.
