SEScoops.com can confirm that Adam Rudman, the most recent head writer on the creative team, is already gone from the company.

Rudman was brought in just six weeks ago to replace Eric Pankowski (who left before WrestleMania and now works at CBS) and was let go by Stephanie McMahon late last week.

Rudman was well-liked by talent, spoke with them regularly and was open to their ideas. However, his lack of wrestling knowledge prior to joining WWE was seen by many as a sign that he wouldn’t last long.

BRITISH Wrestling legend Mick McManus has passed away at the age of 93.

One of the biggest names in the history of the business, and long-term star of ITV’s World of Sport, McManus truly was the man who fans loved to hate.

Frank Rimer, who runs the British Wrestlers Reunion, said: “I am deeply saddened to announce the death of the legend that was Mick McManus, who passed away at 1am this morning.

“Mick never recovered from the loss of his beloved wife Barbara and lost the will the live, despite the loving care of the nurses at the celebrity home for retired actors Brishing House where he lived out his final days.

“Even the arrival of his old friend Lord Richard Attenborough recently, failed to lift his spirits, refusing all food and drink until he quietly slipped into a coma three days ago.

“Mick was without doubt, through his own efforts, the greatest wrestling name that the UK has ever seen or will see again, and even 25 years after his retirement, he retained his aura of stardom until the end. He was 93.”

Tributes have already started pouring in on social media, with TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp star Marty Scurll posting: “RIP Mick McManus, the greatest British wrestling villain in history.

“I was fortunate enough to meet Mick a few times. True gent. Sad day.”


Legend (Y)
