Headlies: WWE Mourns The Loss Of JTG

5 Submitted by on Fri, 20 June 2014, 08:00


Columbus, OH – WWE dedicated this week’s edition of Friday Night Smackdown in Columbus, Ohio to the memory of former WWE Superstar JTG.

A number of wrestlers were released last week in an event many have dubbed “Black Thursday”. While some of the releasing were expected, the loss of JTG hit many by surprise. A candlelight memorial was held in JTG’s hometown of Brooklyn while tributes sprang up across the internet.

Storylines and promos were suspended for this taping as many in the company felt it would not be right to continue on without acknowledging JTG’s departure. The open to the show saw the entire locker room gather on the top of the ramp, many wearing black doo-rags.

Vince McMahon, who hasn’t been seen on WWE television in months, appeared to give a heartfelt speech. A ten-bell salute rang through the silent arena as all in attendance paid their respects. Many wrestlers broke character including a visibly-distraught John Cena and a red-eyed RVD.

In-between matches, several wrestlers recounted their feelings and memories about JTG.

“I remember when JTG was my manager for a week,” said Tyson Kidd. “That was cool.”

“Thanks for retweeting me! It was awesome! Then I deleted it! Ryback rules!” screamed Ryback

“Money..money…yeah…(sigh) yeah,” said a weeping Big Show.

“Psh, I’m not dead, idiots. And it’s not like anyone noticed when I was there,” said an unimpressed JTG. “It was my fault for getting fired. I shouldn’t have been hiding inside Stephanie McMahon’s purse. I guess Icarus flew to close too the sun, son.”

JTG continued, “Whatever, I’ll actually get to wrestle on the indies and make plenty of green. Speaking of which, does anyone have some change so I can take the bus? Ch’yeah!”

    Be shocked if that Ryback tweet was NOT real.

    I hold those three letters dear to my heart now and now think of them as Just Truly Great in honor of our fallen comrade.

  3. Hashington says:

    RIP JTG aka Little Jimmy.

    Seen by few, loved by all.

    2014 is going to be remembered for a lot of things in wrestling:

    -C.M. Punk walked out of WWE (for real this time)
    -The Undertaker’s Streak was broken
    -Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Title in the main event of WrestleMania XXX
    -The Ultimate Warrior was inducted into the Hall of Fame, then passed away 3 days later

    But as shocking, exciting or disappointing as those moments were, you’ll never forget where you were when the heartbreaking news broke. WWE’s once promising future turned bleak when it was announced that 8-year veteran JTG had been released, ironically in response to WWE’s stock falling a couple weeks earlier, when clearly the stock could’ve been boosted if WWE just buckled down and pushed JTG as more than a “D- player”. June 12, 2014 is a day that will live in infamy forever. #neverforgetyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyo….yo…..yo…….yyyooooooo 🙁
