Reason for Cryme Tyme being released

As reported on the site earlier, Cryme Tyme was fired by WWE after the 9/1 RAW house show. While we were aware some kind of backstage altercation with Cade & Murdoch was involved after the two teams' match, details were sketchy until now.

Apparently, there was a problem laying out the match backstage, and a comment was made clear by either Cade or Murdoch that whatever the problem, maybe it will be settled in the ring. Then during the actual bout, Jason Paul (JTG) found himself outside the ring for a regular spot they do, but ended up being counted out. One version of the story is that the tag champs told the ref ahead of time they were keeping JTG outside the ring as a rib because of the backstage chat before the match. However, Cryme Tyme ended up attacking the ref, and while they weren't shooting, they were said to have gone too hard on him, even giving him the G9 (their double-team finishing move) which didn't sit well with anyone as the ref wasn't a wrestler, nor was he trained to take bumps and could have ended up seriously hurt. They took his belt off and threw it into the stands. Keep in mind none of this was scripted or planned.

Apparently, the scuffle continued backstage, as Cryme Tyme belittled the ref to the point it created a scene and John Cena had to break it up and tell them to leave the guy alone. Then they yelled at Barry Windham who produced the match, as they felt he should take the blame for double-crossing them. Windham stood his ground and reported the ref did the count-out finish because it was simply a count-out situation and WWE refs are taught to react in real time to matches these days, so JTG shouldn't have spent so much time outside the ring. Surely upon hearing all this, having in mind the firing mode he's been in, Vince McMahon didn't last long before he let the two go.

As we reported previous, Shad wrote after these events that WWE is a "family" and he knows he'll be back some day

Well after hearing this I guess its no shock that they were fired. Stuff like this won't be taken by the WWE but I can't picture Cryme Tyme doing this. They seemed like good guys who were just out to entertain the crowd and have a good time.

I can see them getting back to WWE at one point but likely under a new gimmick and it could take awhile to happen if it would at all.

Maybe WWE will sign them as seperate wrestlers, not together. Doing solo.

Officially now they have to sit out for 90 days maybe the WWE will cool off in that period.

Maybe they will and maybe they won't. It'll probably come down to who is going to step up in the tag team ranks and if nobody does then we could see these guys back pretty fast.
