A former WWE Superstar has hit out at the company following Vince McMahon’s controversial appearance on Friday Night SmackDown.
The saga surrounding Vince McMahon and an investigation into his conduct took another twist on Friday night as a defiant McMahon appeared in Minneapolis live on SmackDown. The man who is now – for the time being – not acting as Chairman or CEO of the company – opened the show telling the world:
“It is a privilege as always to stand before you here tonight, the WWE Universe. Especially a privilege to stand here in this ring in Minnesota. I’m here simply to remind you of the four words we just saw in the, what we call, WWE signature. Those four words are then, now, forever, and the most important word is together.”
“Welcome to SmackDown!”
His appearance caused much consternation with former WWE star Maria Kanellis taking issue with the appearance on social media.
Now another ex-WWE Superstar has also hit out at the company with IMPACT’s Matthew Rehwoldt – the former Aiden English – taking to social media to give his feelings on no longer being part of the company:
“I was heartbroken when I got released. I’m so glad I don’t work there now.”
I was heartbroken when I got released.
I’m so glad I don’t work there now.

Despite McMahon’s appearance on SmackDown, it was Brock Lesnar who stole the headlines as he returned to the show, attacking Roman Reigns.
