Stephanie McMahon has issued an apology to Mickie James via Twitter after James noted that she received her items inside of a trash bag.
McMahon tweeted, “.@MickieJames I am embarrassed you or anyone else would be treated this way. I apologize personally and on behalf of @WWE. The person responsible is no longer with our company.”
As noted earlier, Triple H tweeted out a statement saying that the person responsible for sending her items in the trash bag has been fired. John Laurinatitis also sent out a similar statement.
The word going around in WWE is that the person who was fired is a major name in the company. We’ll pass along more details when they become available.
Upon learning of the disrespectful treatment some of our recently released talent received on behalf of the company, we took immediate action. The person responsible for this inconsiderate action has been fired and is no longer with @WWE.

It turns out that Mickie James is not the only person to get a trash bag sent to them. Maria Kanellis says she got one too. Jillian Hall says she got one over a decade ago when she was released.
Last year I got one too. 😂 https://t.co/LraFKUWWGo

Well I’m glad Hunter took initiative but it’s been happening since before I was there. Is it always the same person? At least they did something I suppose 🤷🏻♀️ https://t.co/lrTXx4gGay
