Karl Anderson Says Recently Released Superstars Should Stop Thanking WWE & Tell Them To "F*ck Off"
On the latest episode of his podcast, Karl Anderson spoke about the most recent round of WWE releases, and the Good Brother feels there should be less thanking, and more telling off on social media.
During the latest episode of his Talk N Shop podcast, "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson spoke about the surprising WWE cuts which saw the likes of Braun Strowman, Aleister Black and Ruby Riott released from the company.
For the most part, the Superstars have been very respectful and polite towards their former employers, taking to social media to thank the company and Vince McMahon for their opportunities. However, Anderson doesn't feel they should be so diplomatic. In fact, he believes they should tell them to f*ck off!
"We know what it’s like to get canned from WWE. Here’s the advice I would say, enough of the “thank you” tweets. Give me a f*cking break. When you get canned, let it go. How about #f*ckoff? I don’t think less than 24 hours after being fired, take a second to take a breather. Take it easy with the thank you bullsh*t within 24 hours. Breathe it in and take it all in for just one second.
Put together a plan of attack before you start thanking all these motherf*ckers that fired you because people give Jim Ross a lot of heat, but I have respect for Jim Ross because, when we got canned, he said, “There’s a reason why WWE decided to not do business with these individuals anymore.” It’s as true as it can get, and thank God. We made the most money we’ve ever made in our lives this past year, and that’s after WWE."
As Karl alluded to, he and fellow Good Brothers partner Luke Gallows were released by WWE last year before signing with Impact Wresting. Now, they're appearing as members of the reformed Bullet Club on AEW Dynamite.
What do you make of his comments? Do you think the Superstars need to be more assertive about their releases?
