Following his departure from WWE in 2014, "The Funkasaurus" continued his wrestling career as he joined IMPACT Wrestling under the name Tyrus.

Tyrus told me he left "UN-PC" because he wanted to host his own show but then blocked me when I asked him if his departure was connected to Britt McHenry.

Fox Nation host George "Tyrus" Murdoch, better know amongst wrestling fans as ex-WWE star Brodus Clay, has been kicked off his show after following a sexual harassment complaint tabled by co-host Britt McHenry. The Daily Beast reports that Tyrus sent McHenry "unwanted and unsolicited text messages with lewd, sexual comments" on multiple occasions. Co-host and complaintee McHenry has yet to comment either. When Fox News found out about this they simply moved him off of the "Un-PC" show and onto another show called, "NUFFSAID". Two sources who have worked at Fox told The Daily Beast that Tyrus had a reputation for making off-color or "politically incorrect" remarks or jokes.

"While we are not at liberty to discuss the details of any employee matter, we follow strict protocols when matters such as these are brought to our attention, and we make no exception", a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.

No word on if the network has taken disciplinary action against him.

The Daily Beast also reported on behind-the-scenes issues with Tyrus at Fox, made from his appearances on various shows. He has yet to comment on the matter as of this update. It's worth noting that the article mentioned The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr reached out to Tyrus last week before the allegations were reported.

Tyrus appeared on Fox's streaming show The Greg Gutfield show this past weekend. Murdoch wrestled as Tyrus during his run with TNA/Impact Wrestling, and also wrestled as Brodus Clay in WWE. He teamed up with Robert Strauss (aka Robbie E) in a loss to RJ City and former WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette.
