    Piers Gallagher released from FWA after 13 years




    Wrestlingclique.com is reporting that veteran commentator Piers Gallagher has been released from the FWA after 13 years with the company following a series of offensive tweets. The tweets, which have since been deleted, aggressively target the current state of women's wrestling, the lack of a women's division, and the FWA valuing in-ring talent over eye candy, of which
    Piers Gallagher has always been critical.

    The tweet that likely got him fired, was when he name dropped Izzy Van Doren and Penny, referring to them as "Titless jack rabbits that wouldn't have recieved TV time in the days of Gabrielle, Saddle Sally and Lucy Pinder".

    The FWA is currently in a rebranding phase, and the FWA Board Of Directors apparently hit the panic button when these tweets gained traction and swiftly terminated Gallagher's contract. It is said that Langdon Trafford, Piers Gallagher's longtime broadcasting partner, is unhappy with the decision to release Gallagher, though he has gone on record stating he does not agree with Gallagher's views and that the tweets went too far, he still feels the punishment was harsh.

    It is rumored that Langdon Trafford was already on his way out the door and when FWA returns in January, we may have an entirely new commentary team altogether. More on this story as it develops.

    @TheSullinator: Piers Gallager was a douche. He was a poor man's Alex Jones. Glad to see him gone.

Mocking them to make you feel less of a geek for being on a geek on a wrestling forum is lame. If you want to not read their posts, I can fix that for you.

    You are up next, once we can prove you are the one peeing in the soap dispenser in the ladies bathroom.

    Re: Piers Gallagher released from FWA after 13 years

    Oh Piers. Honey. Sweetie. Me Amore.
    How can someone think so little of women's wrestling when he saw me become the most dominating and first woman to win the world title since Gabby
    Wait...there might have been someone in between Me and Gabby...
    Forgot her name. She probably wasn't important anyway.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    @TheSullinator: it was a habit I started back when PASSION was still employed here. No way I was going into the men's bathroom with that thing lurking in the stalls and sniffing the toilet seats.

    @IAmThunder: If I don't remember it did it really happen? #foodforthought

    @IAmThunder: Good to know you like living in the last though. Suppose you need to feed of past accomplishments

    @IAmThunder: I on the other hand prefer to live in the present and look to the future.
