Friday they have come to terms on the release of A.W. (a/k/a Abraham
Washington) as of August 10, 2012, weeks after the boisterous
personality made a rape joke on the July 30 episode of Raw.
According to a company spokesman, A.W., whose real name is Brian Jossie,
was terminated due to his continued use of offensive and inappropriate
remarks in public settings following the ordeal.
A representative for WWE told TMZ.com
Friday evening, “Unfortunately, Brian Jossie, playing the character of
A.W. was terminated because he continued to exhibit poor judgment by
making offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on
Jossie angrily spoke out against WWE via Twitter following the announcement, stating they “turned its back” on him.
“It was the #WWE that made me bold and now it has turned it’s back on
me,” he said. “Just be normal shut up and be a yes man so you can
collect your check and feel like your special. #SELLOUTS!! I remember a
time when the WWE didn’t care about breaking the mold but now everyone
is so afraid of their own shadow. #RemeberTheFans. Thank you WWE for
creating me and then killing me because I only portrayed what I grew up
watching… The #WWE!!”
