It's been a while since we've seen a fired WWE employee exhibit the sheer anger that Abraham Washington has.
It is a rage that was ignited the moment WWE decided to part ways with Washington, who admittedly made the error of going too far on Raw.
A.W., who had been managing the Prime Time Players, would show support for his guys by speaking into a microphone at ringside.
Of course, in the midst of a match, Washington got carried away by making a less-than-kosher joke about Kobe Bryant.
Ultimately, it was the reason A.W. was cut from the WWE team.
But that didn't stop the 35-year-old manager from spelling out the hypocrisy and double-standards in the wake of his dismissal from the company.
By making his case with bold examples relating to Randy Orton, WWE's Be a Star Campaign, Vince McMahon's on-air indiscretions and so forth, everyone believed Washington had burned his bridges for good.
Yet not only are A.W.'s peers up in arms about his firing, there is a prevailing sentiment that his Twitter rants may help his cause after all.
According to the members-only section of F4WOnline.com (reported via 411Mania.com), Dave Meltzer believes Washington's presumptuous comments may—surprisingly—pay dividends in the future:
The more he says, the better his chances of being brought back in a while. Vince has no respect for people he bullies and don't fight back. He hired Bischoff, Bret (spent 10 years begging for him to comeback and even brought him back after Bret walked out on him the day of Mania), Sable, Billy Graham, yet never touched Heenan except for one shots. I doubt even he knows it but he's [A.W.] playing it smart in the long run.
One would never see such nonsense at play in any other organization besides pro wrestling, but as the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon can do as he pleases.
Ultimately, if McMahon is more inclined to respect those who challenge him, as opposed to those who don't, Washington may be brought back sooner rather than later.
And if that comes to fruition, A.W., who will have passed McMahon's test, just might receive a huge push as reward.
