More on the Release of Stevie Richards

From: WrestleScoop.com

Despite being released from his WWE deal, Stevie Richards was often praised by the agents for his in-ring work. Richards was even previously used to get Shane McMahon ready to work in the ring.

Apparently Richards had some backstage heat on him for rubbing people the wrong way by offering creative ideas aggressively. Richards had struggled to distance himself from being labeled just another ECW wrestler but had become a poor politician backstage. Despite his efforts, it was obvious Richards would never climb the ladder, so to speak, and he was released.
