Former WWE creative team member Robert Evans announced on his social media page that he quit the company. Reports earlier on Thursday indicated that Evans was fired by Vince McMahon for allowing McMahon’s name to be mentioned during Bret Hart’s speech at the WWE Hall of Fame, but Evans’ brief statement makes it clear that he opted to leave the company.
Powell’s POV: Evans did not indicate whether there was backlash over the Hall of Fame or if he left the company for another reason. We’ll be sure to pass along any details should he choose to clarify.
