However I'm reading on various news sites that he has indeed gotten fired for not cutting Flair off while he was mouthing off during the panel at Summerslam, where JR was the MC. So again, the WWE shits on good ol' JR and he's just the scapegoat I guess.
I think he'll be back again some day and in some form. But, if this is the end for him it's too bad that this is how it ended: thanks to a drunken Ric Flair.
