Stephanie McMahon Releases WWE Hall of Famer

WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett just departed WWE, and while many thought he left on his own according, Brad Shepherd reports that Jarrett was let go by WWE. Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan are now co-CEO’s of WWE, choosing who works for the company.



Two other WWE Hall of Famers still have prominent roles in WWE as part time on screen performers. WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg recently opened up on not getting a chance to square off against WWE Hall of Fame ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. Austin and Goldberg were huge money drawing stars of WWE and WCW in the late 90s. With their aggressive in-ring style, fans always dreamed of a match between the two. However, that did not materialize.

Goldberg reveals why the match never took place

The two iconic stars did share a ring at WrestleMania 20 however when Stone Cold worked as the special guest referee in a match between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. On Talk Is Jericho, Goldberg explained why a match with The Texas Rattlesnake never happened.

“There’s no question that I wish it would’ve happened. That was the match to have. Why it never happened, I think 90% of the reasoning behind that was [Austin’s] neck issues and my finishing moves, right? Whether it be the spear, whether it be the Jackhammer, I don’t think that those are moves that he would’ve wanted to, wanted to do, nor would his boss would’ve wanted him to do. I think it was a safety issue more so than anything.”

The former WWE Universal Champion has been away from WWE. His last match took place at Elimination Chamber in February, when he had challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. However, he was unsuccessful in his attempt. Meanwhile, Austin worked an impromptu match against Kevin Owens and emerged victorious at WrestleMania 38.
