”In the case of Black (Tom Budgen, 36, also known as Tommy End), there were issues with the writing staff but in the end, he and Murphy were both wrestlers where Vince McMahon was said to not understand their style of wrestling. There is no word on if these cuts will affect talks to bring his wife, Thea Trinidad Budgen back, which was the idea last week.”
Melzter went on to claim that Black made himself look foolish by saying that Vince McMahon liked him when it was Vince himself who made the decision to let go of him.
”Tom Budgen went on a diatribe after where he looked incredibly foolish. He did the same bit about how it wasn’t Vince McMahon, who liked him, not realizing it was McMahon who made the firing decisions.”
