Shane Thorne was brought up to the WWE main roster as a part of Retribution. He was given a strange mask and a stranger name. Now the former Slapjack is no longer with the company.

Sean Sapp confirmed that Shane Thorne is no longer with the company after today’s cuts. He was released before anyone got to really see his face on the main roster, quite literally.

Shane Thorne was given Crocodile Dundee gimmick after Retribution’s demise, but he never had a chance to debut it on television. Sadly, he will not be able to do that now after today’s news.

Hit Row, John Morrison, Tegan Nox, Drake Maverick and more were also cut today. Budget cuts was the official reason given for today’s firings, but the trend is becoming all too common.


We’re hoping that Shane Thorne will be able to land on his feet. Hopefully, his next job will provide him with better opportunities than WWE ever did.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
