WrestlingNews.co has confirmed that Mark Carrano has been fired by WWE. Wrestling Inc. first confirmed his name after Dave Meltzer first noted on the Wrestling Observer forum that a major name was fired after the trash bag incident with Mickie James. Two WWE sources confirmed to us that Carrano was let go.
Carrano’s exit is directly because of the trash bag incident, but we were told that his exit was not totally unexpected. One source noted to us that the feeling was that his days were numbered once John Laurinaitis was brought back to work alongside Carrano as the heads of the Talent Relations department.
Carrano has previously been the person to call the talent to let them know that they were being released so essentially he was put in the “bad guy” role that has been passed on to Laurinaitis.
Carrano has been with the company for many years. Some fans may recognize him from appearances on E!’s Total Divas.
