During last night's Monday Night Raw broadcast, tag team partners Rhyno and Heath Slater were forced to face each other by Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin in order to keep their job, with Slater getting the victory.  The storyline was that Rhyno was fired, while Slater learned he wasn't getting to stay a pro wrestler, but would instead become a referee for the Raw brand.

We've received a number of questions about Rhyno's status with the company.  As of this morning, we are told he is still slated for the South American tour that kicks off tomorrow in Santiago, Chile, so this would appear to be something storyline-based, not an actual exit from the company by the former ECW World Champion.
