I'm told Abraham Washington was very close to getting fired late last week after the fallout from his dated Kobe Bryantjoke on last week's WWE Raw. While the company is high up on his character, Vince McMahon was very upset over the comment and wanted him gone.

Vince began to calm down but was still leaning towards firing him. My source says he was talked out of it by someone in his inner circle although we didn't hear who it was. The reasoning was that the story started to die down pretty fast and if they fired him over it, it could result in another round of coverage from the mainstream media.

This could have actually worked counter to WWE's goal to limit negative publicity so not only did AW keep his job but his television time as well.
