So that’s what’s up. Even though some people might not like their job, they tend to like being employed. It’s nice to have a job and get to ply your craft, no matter what you actually do. There are a lot of jobs where you can improve over the years if you put in the work, which can make for a lot of hard work. Normally someone getting fired is not a good thing, but wrestling isn’t always a normal place.
R-Truth recently appeared on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness and talked about how being fired from his first stint with the company was a good thing for him in the long run. When he came back to the company, he even thanked Vince McMahon for firing him as he needed time to mature as a performer. After being let go from WWE, R-Truth went on to become NWA World Champion in Impact Wrestling, along with two NWA World Tag Team Titles.
This is what R-Truth has done since coming back. Check out some of his funniest moments (These are great):
Opinion: For a comedy wrestler, or an anything wrestler for that matter, that is quite the amount of maturity. R-Truth wasn’t the most interesting guy in the world during his first run with the company and needed the time away to become a more complete performer. That’s exactly what happened and now he is having another career resurgence. You don’t see that very often and it makes R-Truth seem that much more special.
