AW spoke with on Monday and says he was released from WWE for a tweet he posted last week about Linda McMahon. He wrote:

"#AWPromotion$ says vote for Linda McMahon!!! The PTP'z support Linda and so should you! #voteordie4Linda"

AW told

"That's how they show support for their employees who want to support Linda. They fire them. That's complete bull(expletive).

"For some reason they don't want to associate [Linda] with anything to do with wrestling because it's in the past. Vince doesn't want any association with her campaign. They told me it's two totally different entities, which I didn't know. I thought I was doing a good thing."
