Report: Fan Reaction Had Little To Do With Recent WWE Release

Report: Fan Reaction Had Little To Do With Recent WWE Release

Earlier today it was reported that Kenice Mobley, the writer who recently admitted to not knowing Bobby Lashley’s name, was released by WWE.

Following on from that news, Sean Ross Sapp is reporting on Twitter that Mobley’s comments on the Asian Not Asian had “little to nothing to do” with the company’s decision to fire her:

For what it’s worth, I’m told fan reaction to Kenice Mobley’s podcast appearance had little to nothing to do with the decision for WWE to let her go. I was told it was more of an internal concern. What she was told, I’m not sure.

Sapp notes that he was told the decision to cut Mobley was more down to an “internal concern” that officials had. He does explain that he was unsure of what Mobley was told about her release.

For those that haven’t heard, Mobley was in the news a fair bit this week after she admitted to knowing very little about the current WWE product, including the name of the WWE Champion:

“Yes, I have just been hired by WWE. Given the things that you know about me and my entire life and what I’m into, yes (that’s surprising). Yes, also a surprise for me. They did not require me to know anything about wrestling but I do have a background in film production and comedy writing and they’re like, ‘Perfect. Come on in’.

“So I am on the Monday Night Raw team. So there’s Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and the people I know that are on it are Bobby – his name is either Bobby Ashley or Bobby Lashley and I really should know that. He’s like this giant Black guy and he and the people who are part of his crew, I know that they call – or at least as of last year, they called themselves The Hurt Business. The Hurt Business. They wear suits and they’re like, ‘We’re cool’.”
