referee Mickie Jay was a recent guest on the Monday Night Mayhem radio show and spoke candidly about being released by WWE last year while battling cancer. When asked whether he was offended by being fired while struggling with such a serious health issue, Jay told the hosts, "I'll tell you the truth... I don't really have any ill feelings at all, and I'll tell you why. They kept me on for about five months after my diagnosis. And after they released me, they paid me for three months, which they really didn't have to because in the contract I signed, they would payout for injury pay, and of course, I wasn't hurt in the ring. So they really didn't have to do anything for me, and I have to say John Laurinaitis was very cordial they way he handled things with me, and I have no ill feelings. In fact, I don't how I would have survived if they would've have paid me out for those three months."
