Responding to the most recent round of roster cuts, former WWE Superstar Virgil has made the startling claim that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has “lost it”.
News of the latest round of cuts to the WWE roster was broken by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp on November 18th. A total of eight Superstars were let go including all of Hit Row, John Morrison, Tegan Nox, Jaxson Ryker, Shane Thorne, and Drake Maverick.
Many in the wrestling world have been reacting to the news on social media. One man who didn’t hold back in his criticism of the move was the former Million Dollar Champion, Virgil. The one-time butler of Ted DiBiase took to Instagram to make his feelings known.
“Between the sheets is where the dirt lays. Not saying much but the truth here. Vinny has lost it. He literally does whatever he wants with no structure. Trips has ideas and half way they cut the motor. People’s dreams get shattered, or maybe they get ignited. Depends.”
“For me, I have been through the ringer, used abused and amused for others to benefit. Hey man my gig was good but looking back if I wasnt hustling to survive I would be treated like dog sh*t to this day. Time to play your own game. Enough with the glass ceiling, the measuring stick, or the powers that be. Everyone needs to crush beef the way I do. Like a God.”
Virgil made his name as ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase’s butler in the late eighties in the WWF. Doing DiBiase’s bidding Virgil ensured DiBiase could find everybody’s price without having to get his hands dirty himself. When Virgil finally had enough of bowing to DiBiase’s demands he turned on his one-time boss, capturing DiBiase’s prized possession, the Million Dollar Championship. His success in the WWF was limited after DiBiase recaptured his title and Virgil left the company in 1995.
After some time on the independent scene, he transformed into Vincent and became the nWo’s Head Of Security in WCW. Although he was one of the most enduring nWo members, Vincent wasn’t one of the most successful, returning to a background role like his early days with DiBiase.
