» WWE releasing referee Wes Adams was considered by many as being the victim of circumstances. Adams was the referee on ECW two weeks ago in the match between John Morrison & The Miz vs. Mark Henry & Matt Hardy on August 12 that had a screwed up finish. The plan was for Miz to save Morrison after a super side effect, but Miz missed his cue and Morrison suffered a flash knockout from the bump. Morrison ended up trying to kick out at the last split-second when he realized Miz wasn't coming in to break up the pinfall. Adams still counted the pinfall and did his job as all WWE referees have been instructed to call every match as a shoot. When he ruled the match was over, things didn't look good on TV and you could tell everyone was confused. Many within WWE noted it wasn't Adams' fault as he was regarded as a nice guy and a scapegoat for this incident. He is now taking on bookings as a wrestler on the indy scene.
