Full Details On Eugene & Crime Tyme's Releases: Hilarious Backstage Story
February 8, 2021
This weekend, WWE released SmackDown! wrestler Eugene and RAW tag team Cryme Time.
Eugene was released by WWE because he recently violated WWE’s Wellness Policy for a third time. After a recent drug test, Eugene had a prescription drug show up in his system and he was unable to produce proof the drug was properly prescribed to him by a doctor.
As for Crime Tyme, there’s a very interesting story behind this one. Backstage, there has been heat between Crime Tyme and Cade & Murdoch for several weeks. During an altercation at a house show this weekend, shad from Crime Tyme said to Trevor Murdock, “Whatever happens out there happens”. This was seen as a direct threat and Murdoch addressed Shad’s threat in front of the rest of the locker room.
Cade & Murdoch decided to pull a rib on Crime Tyme involving the referee of their match that night and a major swerve. There is a spot in the match where JTG gets bumnped out of the ring and gets back in right before getting counted out. The swerve is that the refs were going to count very fast at the end and disqualify Crime Tyme – -without them knowing hte real finish to the match. After it went down, Crime Tyme was shocked — but immediately gave the referee their finishing maneuver – took off his belt and auctioned it off in the crowd!
Although the referee was protected during the move and they stayed in character by auctioning off his belt, Crime Tyme still performed their finisher on somebody who did not expect it or was trained to take it and were seen as the real “bad guys” of the whole situation. They were released after the show.
