Brodus Clay says Planet Funk is 'still in orbit, ya dig'

Rumors of Brodus Clay's demise may have been greatly exaggerated.

That's according to The Funkasaurus himself, who took to Twitter to let the world know he's not dead just yet:

"Don't believe the hater hype plant funk still in orbit ya dig!"

This after word broke that Clay's funky gimmick was being shelved due to Vince McMahon being unhappy with his ring work after just one bad match with Heath Slater. Which is quite ridiculous when you think about it because A) he was working with Slater and B) it happened during a Smackdown taping and never actually aired anywhere.

Of course, pro wrestling reporting is always touch and go, so it's entirely possible that the gimmick itself was never in trouble but rather Clay was given the WWE equivalent of a slap on the wrist by simply being ripped off television for a couple weeks.

Whatever the case may be, if we're to believe the man himself (and in this case there's no reason to think he's lying), the Funkasaurus from Planet Funk who is funky will be back in our lives soon enough.

Somebody call my momma.
