Brad Maddox explains his dismissal from WWE

Brad Maddox

Former WWE Superstar Brad Maddox confirmed that the release from WWE last week came after a bad choice of word he uttered during a dark match at the Smackdown tapings.

During his appearance on Busted Open SiriusXM Radio, Maddox said that he used the word “pricks” during a pre-match promo and it did not go down very well with those backstage. Maddox said that the choice of word really angered Vince McMahon and he was given the pink slip the day after it happened.

Maddox, whose real name is Tyler Kluttz, added that he was surprised that he got fired as Vince was really digging the idea of him teaming up with Adam Rose.
