Longtime Employee Gerald Brisco Furloughed, WWE Willing To Release “Just About Anyone”



Longtime employee and WWE Hall Of Famer, Gerald Brisco was reportedly part of the recent releases made by WWE during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to bounce back from the financial damages suffered because of the global crisis, WWE released and furloughed several employees without issuing any prior warning.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Brisco, 73, has been furloughed by WWE.

Widely regarded as one of the all-time greats in the wrestling industry, Brisco has been on the WWE team since 1984. He is best known for his time as one of Vince McMahon‘s stooges during the Attitude Era.

Brisco had been working as a talent scout of late, and since there are no amateur wrestling competitions or college wrestling tournaments going on during the pandemic, WWE made the decision to lay him off for the time being. The Hall Of Famer is the one responsible for bringing a young Brock Lesnar to WWE.

Brisco is a former WWE 24/7 Champion; he won the title by defeating fellow colleague Pat Patterson during the RAW Reunion special.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to create an increasing number of problems for WWE. Having successfully steered clear of all roadblocks in the last couple of months, the billion-dollar company once again overcame yet another major hurdle last night.

WWE happens to be ready for another batch of releases during this pandemic if the need arises so to do.

According to WrestleVotes, WWE is willing to let go of “just about anyone” who requests his/her release. It would be interesting to see if any talent has the courage to request his/her release during these difficult and unprecedented times.

While Superstars are free to dream about a move to AEW, it is to be noted that Tony Khan’s promotion does run on a budget despite the huge financial backing.
