WWE sacks Mark Carrano for disrespecting Mickie James – WWE Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development Paul Triple H has confirmed that Senior Director of Talent Relations Mark Carrano has been sacked for disrespecting former WWE Superstar Mickie James. Mark gave Mickie her belongings in a black garbage bag after being released by the company last week.
Triple H on Twitter wrote, “Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talent received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE.”
While Mickie James wrote on Twitter, “Dear @VinceMcMahon Im not sure if you’re aware, I did receive my @WWE care package today. Thank you.
Maria Kanellis confirmed accepting a junk bag after her flight, whereas Gail Kim expressed that this kind of incidents had been happening for some time. Kim had worked with the company from 2002 through 2004, and from 2008 until 2011.
WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon apologized to James, stating that she was “embarrassed” that she or anyone else was treated that way.
James made her WWE main roster debut in 2005 and was placed in a storyline with Trish Stratus, in which James’ gimmick was that of Stratus’ biggest fan turned obsessed stalker, an angle which ran over eight months.
She received a push and she won her first WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 22, a title she has held a total of five times. James also won her first Divas Championship defeating Maryse Ouellet at Night of Champions in 2009, to become the second of five Divas to hold both the Women’s and Divas titles.
She was released from the company in April 2010, after which she returned to TNA, where she became a three-time TNA Knockouts Champion.
