Sounds strange that he never sought a reason or asked WTF to anyone. It's like he didn't fight for his job. I'd be furious and wanting to know why... AND IT'S OVER!

I agree, especially after such a long career. He watched others around him drop with the ownership change and knew it was bound to happen eventually I think.

The transition of new ownership has ruined a lot of things already. A lot of great things have come out of this, but we have lost a lot too. Goldberg stands out to me so far as the biggest

Goldberg stands out because he was the voice of the fights for so long. He traveled the world with them for almost 20 years, 1 month notice is a little low of a blow

At least he was given notice though and wasn't just let go. That wouldn't surprise me with the new ownership

I am shocked to hear he was given a month notice. Regardless if he had the rumored drug problem or whatever the issue was, he deserved some respect at least with the departure.
