Back To Business...
With great respect and consideration to all of my friends and supporters through the years, I sincerely feel that you should hear the following
announcement directly from me. At times information can get misconstrued on the wrestling Internet. I want to ensure that before the anticipated
communication leaks occur, that you get the complete truth that you so rightfully deserve.
During a telephone conversation yesterday with John Laurinaitis, from World Wrestling Entertainment Talent Relations, I was informed that the company
decided to terminate my booking contract dated October 3, 2003. The contract specifies that the agreement may be terminated for any reason whatsoever
by providing me with ninety (90) days advance written notice. My 90-day written notice will be issued by WWE Legal Department on Monday, April
I would like to say that our conversation was a courtesy, very cordial, and definitely not unexpected. The WWE creative department has not been able
to come up with a viable storyline for the Paul Bearer character since he was "buried" in cement at THE GREAT AMERICAN BASH on June 27, 2004.
The last two years have indeed been a blessing, as the company made a major life saving surgery possible for me. I will always treasure the many
friendships and memories of my almost 14-year association with The McMahon Family. I will never shut the door on a future relationship with WWE, as
you well know anything can happen.
The next 90-days will be very important for me, as I must make some serious career decisions. Once again, I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. For
some odd reason I feel like it's somebody's birthday around here tomorrow. I know it can't be mine! Then again, it very well could be. Hehee...
Take care, my friends.
