Superstars react to Big Show's firing on Twitter
The World's Largest Athlete met an ignominous end on Raw SuperShow, fired by EVP of Talent Relations and Raw and SmackDown GM John Laurinaitis while he wept on his knees, begging Big Johnny's forgiveness for the giant's jape about his voice the previous week. The brutal future-endeavoring, delivered with a smug smarminess even Mr. McMahon would have to envy, left the big man speechless and the WWE Universe stunned, unable even to muster up the traditional "Na Na Na" chant for a Superstar who's sent shuffling to the unemployment line. And while the WWE Universe itself still reels from the departure of their favorite giant ( REACTIONS: THE DAY AFTER RAW), the locker room took to Twitter to express its own reactions.
-R-Truth ( @RonKillings): "Still can't believe @WWETheBigShow got fired last night! Even after he apologized!"
-Zack Ryder ( @ZackRyder): "It sucks that @WWETheBigShow got fired. But I wonder if my Superstars Series 9 action figure will be worth more money now."
