During an appearance on the “Busted Open” show on SiriusXM satellite radio on Tuesday, Brad Maddox revealed he was released by WWE last week for using the word “pricks” during a promo in a dark match before the Smackdown tapings last Tuesday.

Maddox stated that the use of the word upset Vince McMahon and that was surprised about the release. WWE announced Maddox’s release last Wednesday.
