According to WWE's official website, Helms and two other wrestlers -- Maria and Paul Burchill -- were all given pink slips.

The WWE didn't specify why Helms was released -- but it could have something to do with his arrest on January 27 for public intoxication.

He asked for his release before the incident but WWE denied. Helms has long wanted to form a tag team again, and joining Shannon Moore in TNA.

It's so funny that Shane Helms was released and Chris Jericho wasn't and they gave Jericho a championship. In my opinion, HHH must've manipluated Jericho to help Helms getting drunk and fired. And what happened to Matt Hardy in all this? Wasn't he there when they both got arrested?

Maria will be back after Celebrity Apprentice. This is a contact issue. She can't appear on TV while Apprentice is running. So they'll resign her after its done.

Helms, well, his run was done anyways even before this arrest. His release had nothing to do with it. He'll be in TNA in 90 days. I have no doubt of that.

I wish they would release Rey Misterio. The gimmick of that tiny ugly troll beating up the big guys has grown very old and worn thin. Unless they want to have a match between Rey and Hornswoggle, I say it's time for him to go.
Rey must have nude pics of Vince McMahon to get the star treatment that he has received for years.
