Gerald Brisco has been relieved of his WWE duties after thirty-six years with the company.

Ok, want to get this out the right way. Last night I received a call from [WWE] Chairman Of The board [Vince McMahon] to let me know after 36 years of dedication to [WWE] I am no longer needed. I’m ok with this. I will still be around to help talent. More info will follow. Thanks.

Gerald was responsible for finding talent like Brock Lesnar, Jason Jordan, Chad Gable and many more.

Brisco had previously been furloughed by the company in April.
