Mickie James is still waiting to tell her story after being released by WWE last week. She mentioned on this week’s episode of Gaw TV that she often felt “comfortably uncomfortable” during her latest run in WWE, because they tried to pigeonhole her into a certain mold. She promised to elaborate more on her experience next week.
It turns out that one of those uncomfortable moments happened again today, when James received her belongings from WWE in the mail...in a trash bag:
Triple H responded to this incident by stating that the person responsible has been fired:
Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talent received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE.— Triple H (@TripleH) April 23, 2021
Stephanie McMahon then issued a personal apology to James and reiterated Triple H’s response:
.@MickieJames I am embarrassed you or anyone else would be treated this way. I apologize personally and on behalf of @WWE. The person responsible is no longer with our company. https://t.co/nvN4WsKC0I— Stephanie McMahon (@StephMcMahon) April 23, 2021
CM Punk knows a thing or two about being treated like garbage by WWE while being released, and he made sure to chime in on Triple H’s response:
Meanwhile, Gail Kim didn’t sound surprised at all to see that this behavior is still happening in WWE:
Well I’m glad Hunter took initiative but it’s been happening since before I was there. Is it always the same person? At least they did something I suppose ♀️ https://t.co/lrTXx4gGay— Gail Kim-Irvine (@gailkimITSME) April 23, 2021
Speaking of which, Maria Kanellis confirmed that she received her trash bag in the mail last year after she was released by WWE:
Last year I got one too. https://t.co/LraFKUWWGo— MariaKanellisBennett (@MariaLKanellis) April 22, 2021
