Chris Jericho fired from WWE

I know, this is old news. Last week on Raw, Jericho was “fired” by acting Raw G.M., Stephanie McMahon.

Well, I just noticed today that they have extended such storyline elements to the web, including the WWE Universe web site.

It has been noticed that previously fired employees have had their profiles shut down, citing a Terms of Service violation. Jericho’s account has been given the same treatment, even though we all expect him to be reinstated tonight by Vince.

WWE Universe:  Chris Jericho

Bravo, Joey Styles. I do like what you’ve been doing online.

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
