As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Houston, TX at the Toyota Center on the USA Network, Rhyno lost a match to Heath Slater with the stipulation of the loser being “fired from Raw.” WWE issued the following:
HOUSTON — After losing a one-on-one match to longtime friend and tag team partner Heath Slater during this week’s broadcast, Rhyno was fired from Monday Night Raw, per a stipulation ordered by the red brand’s “General Manager-Elect,” Baron Corbin.
Informing both Superstars that cuts would be needed for the Raw roster, Corbin scheduled a match pitting the former SmackDown Tag Team Champions against one another. Slater, unable to risk losing everything that he’s built for his family in recent years, had no choice but to defeat his friend and force the veteran Man Beast to leave Raw.
Moments later, the “General Manager-Elect” informed Slater that he would remain on Team Red as a referee, not a Superstar.
