Speaking on the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross gave details surrounding WWE’s decision to fire Stacy “The Kat” Carter in 2001.

Ross explained that, according to the reason he was given, Carter had challenged the creativity and decision-making of some of the company’s producers and writers, prompting Vince McMahon to fire her.

“It was just that Vince came out of the blue, said, ‘You know, I’m getting too many complaints about Stacy and I’m not gonna tolerate it. And I want you to let her go today.’ Boom, it was that quick.” [H/T 411mania]

The WWE Hall of Famer added that he felt bad about McMahon’s decision and he did not agree with it, especially as Carter was married to his broadcast colleague, Jerry “The King” Lawler, at the time.

As a result of Carter’s firing, Lawler resigned from his role with WWE in protest. However, he returned to his position as an announcer nine months later.

Jim Ross mentioned on his podcast that Stacy Carter does a lot of work with rescue animals and she owns a hair salon in Dallas.

The highlight of her WWE career arguably came in December 1999 at the Armageddon pay-per-view when she won a Four Corners Evening Gown match to become the Women's Champion.
