Backstage Reason Behind WWE Superstar's Release

Adjust Comment Print

The company just posted that they have come to terms with Gotch on his release as of today. All that was said was that Gotch was gone as of April 5, 2017, and they wished him the best "in all his future endeavors". The Vaudevillains made their main roster debut on SmackDown in April 2016, and remained on the Tuesday night show after the brand split. Based on English taking the pin in a tag team contest prior to this week's SmackDown, it seems that the decision was a last-minute one. They last appeared on SmackDown Live on February 7. The news also bring up the question of what direction WWE could possibly go with Gotch's tag team partner Aiden English.

In their first match in the WWE, The Vaudevillains beat The Lucha Dragons en route to winning a No. 1 contenders tournament last but lost to the New Day at Extreme Rules.

Last year, Sports Keeda reported that there was actually a backstage fight between Simon Gotch and Sin Cara, but it appears as if the aggressor was the Lucha Dragon member.

Trump signs repeal of US broadband privacy rules
FCC chairman Ajit Pai is, however, supporting the repeal, saying that the privacy rules were flawed and were never implemented. The rules were passed by the Federal Communications Commission last October and were set to go into effect later in 2017.

With Gotch now out of the picture, English may be in line for a singles push. They faced-off against American Alpha and Simon took the pin.

Simon Gotch now can turn his attention to making a name for himself outside of the confines of the WWE. The Vaudevillains have not been used all that much since getting called up to the main roster, and they honestly had a gimmick that did not translate well to WWE television.
