That would be a good reason. WWE has long since used a series of legends to boost up their modern roster. With so many current famous names throughout WWE’s history they have quite the selection to pick from. There have been some great successes over the years but sometimes these things just do not work out. It seems that was the situation with one of the biggest names in WWE history.

During a recent edition of the Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle revealed that WWE Hall Of Famer Bob Backlund refused to put the Crippler Crossface on Chris Benoit because he wasn’t standing up. Soon after this, Backlund could not remember his lines during a backstage segment and asked to do it over, not realizing that it was being aired live. Angle believes that was the deciding factor and Backlund was gone from the company soon after.

Opinion: If both of those stories are true, I can certainly understand why WWE would want to get rid of Backlund. Having one such issue would be enough of a problem but to have those two situations in a row would be too far for anyone. I’m not sure what caused the problem, but you can only make so many mistakes in the company before they pull the plug and that seems to be the case.

What do you think of Backlund’s time for the WWE? What is your favorite reason for someone to be let go from the company Let us know in the comments below.
