The mouth of Joey Styles has once again got him fired from a wrestling company … this time he was released by EVOLVE over a tasteless Trump-related joke he made about a female ring announcer.
It all went down during EVOLVE 72 when Styles made a comment about announcer Joanna Rose who was in the ring at the time. Joey said, “Joanna, you look great tonight … and if our next President were here tonight he’d want to grab you by the … ” before stopping his sentence.
Joey then said that the word he was gonna say is what manager Stokely Hathaway is in real life, obviously implying that he was gonna say “p*ssy.”
WWN VP of Talent Relations Gabe Sapolsky tweeted after the show saying, “I deeply apologize for Joey Styles’ comments and am furious.” Adding, “We’ve parted ways with Joey Styles and that’s my final comment on this. Thank you for your support.”
Styles was released from WWE back in August and it appeared to be over comments made during a WWE Facebook live Q&A. He had only been with EVOLVE since September.
A rep for FloSlam says the comment will be edited out of the show when it’s uploaded to FloSlam.tv.
