ECW star Balls Mahoney, who hasn’t been seen in months beyond a loss to Kane on Smackdown, was officially released by World Wrestling Entertainment this afternoon.
Mahoney was hired by the company for the relaunch of the ECW brand in 2006. A former ECW World Tag Team champion with Masato Tanaka, this WWE run (he had a quick run in the mid-1990s as Xanta Claus that lasted all of two appearances) featured Mahoney in a storyline linking him to Kelly Kelly and feuding with The Miz.
It appears WWE is finally getting around to their post-Wrestlemania housecleaning. I’m more surprised it’s happening on a TV day, as they usually relegate such things to towards the end of the week.
