WWE has uploaded a video (above) featuring Rhyno addressing rumors that he would be retiring from wrestling after being “fired” from Monday Night RAW.
Rhyno lost a “Loser is Fired” match against Heath Slater last week on RAW and continued to appear at WWE live events during the South American tour.
Rhyno notes in the video he will continue to fulfill his contractual obligations for live events, but isn’t sure where he will end up. So, it would appear WWE will push forward with this storyline for the time being as he continues to appear at live events.
