The WWE and Ezekiel Jackson Part Ways
This should'nt be a surprised to anyone; Ezekiel Jackson, who was the final ECW champion back in 2010, is no longer with the WWE. He's not been seen on TV in about two years, and has suffered a number of injuries that kept him sidelined. We doubt anyone will truly care, primarily because Vince's love for him waned not too long after he got going, but it feels like this has been a long time coming.
The question is, who's next on the chopping block (contract not being renewed block?)? JTG's not been seen in a New York minute, and could be next. Here are Zeke's thoughts regarding his departure:
"In July 2008 I made my #smackdown television debut with "Thee Brian Kendrick"... much love to TBK for seeking me out and choosing me. I was fulfilling a dream I had as an 8 yr old kid who saw and fell in love with professional wrestling for the first time through my neighbors window in #Guyana South America... On April 6th 2014 my contract expired so #WrestleMania 30 was #bittersweet. I thank God for all the blessings he's bestowed upon me in the last 7 years. In my time in the #wwe I became the last #ECW Champion and a one time Intercontinental Champion... I've also traveled the world given the opportunity to do what I love. Encountering some of the most passionate and reliable fans in the world... I am deeply appreciative to Vincent McMahon and the #WWE for allowing a snotty nose lickle bai from Victory Valley Linden Guyana to live out my childhood dream on the highest level. #Godspeed to the company and all of my friends and colleagues. #beblessed Extremely excited for the next chapter in my life. I'm looking forward to this new season.... I'm still 290 pounds and #healthy. I can be reached for bookings, sponsorship and signings through my manager at: Rjsmanandco@gmail.com #Godbless"
I'm not retiring, my contract expired. I've been out of the ring long enough #zeke is ready to dominate... firstname.lastname@example.org
