Joey Styles fired from Evolve

Joey Styles was let go from Evolve tonight after making some unfortunate comments during the broadcast of Evolve 72.

During a promo segment opposite Stokely Hathaway, manager to Evolve World Champion Timothy Thatcher, with whom Joey has been feuding with to an extent, he veered off topic to say that despite Evolve vice-president and booker Gabe Sapolsky forbidding him to make political jokes, he had a live microphone. He proceeded to compliment ring announcer Joanna Rose on her appearance before suggesting that the president-elect might like to “grab her by the—”, cutting himself off and saying that the word he left out brings him to Mr. Hathaway.

The promo segment finished and the (excellent, check the recap) main event went on as people voiced their displeasure to Evolve. Mr. Sapolsky then Tweeted the following statements:

If there’s one thing you can say about Evolve, it’s that they always have a prompt response to customer dissatisfaction. How do you feel about this, Cagesiders?
