Longtime WWE timekeeper Mike Yeaton released

The WWE layoffs last week had an unlikely victim, timekeeper and longtime employee Mark Yeaton.

The release was very much surprising to everyone within the company as Yeaton was well liked and was a big part of the ring crew. He has been employed with WWE for around 30 long years which made the release even more shocking to those in the company.

Yeaton was probably best known for being Steve Austin’s “beer thrower” as he was always the guy who threw those “Steveweisers” from ringside to Austin whenever there was a beer celebration.

“#Swigofbeer to my old beer thrower @WWETimekeeper Mark Yeaton. Best damn beer thrower in the world and great guy,” wrote Austin on his Twitter when he found out about the release.
