Bret Hart Gone From WWE (For Now) - Original Storyline Plans

As seen last night on RAW, Bret Hart was removed from the Raw General Manager position by Vince McMahon for not attending the previous night's Fatal 4-Way pay-per-view (kayfabe). McMahon then informed fans that a new, anonymous General Manager would take control of the show, emailing announcer Michael Cole his orders. His profile has since been removed from the RAW Superstars section.

Word coming out of WWE following this week's RAW is that Bret Hart is gone for the time being. While there is talk that he might be back by the end of the Summer, he's gone indefinitely for now.

Not much details are available yet but it is known that there was concern from Lloyds of London, Bret's insurance provider, after the physical angle at the end of last week's RAW with the NXT Rookies. We can also confirm that he's getting married again as we reported earlier this morning here on the website. Bret is set to get married for the third time on 7/24.

Originally Bret was going to shoot a face-to-face angle at the Fatal 4 Way pay-per-view with the NXT Rookies but when he didn't make it to the show, plans had to be changed.
