    It’s an absolute shame to see these two go. I, for one, am really sad to see them leave, especially Slaughter who, if you’ll forgive the turn of phrase, has been a good soldier for WWE for years. He will certainly be missed by me, as will Ron Simmons, who could always be counted on to be entertaining.
