The release of Maven Huffman was something of a surprise to the Tough Enough winner, who felt that John Laurinaitis was always on his side.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Maven recalled receiving the dreaded phone call from ‘Johnny Ace’ in 2005. He said,


“It was a Tuesday like any other day. I get a call from John, Johnny Ace, John Laurinaitis, who was the Vice President of Talent Relations. Getting a call from Johnny, I wouldn’t say it was unique, it wasn’t unique, but it was always concerning for one reason: Johnny is not a guy that would call you just to say ‘hi’.

“But I wasn’t concerned because Johnny was in my corner. Johnny always thought that I had something to offer and something to bring to the table.”

Maven was with WWE from 2001 to 2005 and is remembered for his Hardcore Title reign and for eliminating The Undertaker from the 2002 Royal Rumble match.
