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

George Murdoch was taken off of "UN PC" and placed on his own show entitled "Nuff Said".

Fox News brass was aware of the harassment complaint against one of its streaming service's most high-profile hosts, these sources confirmed, but ultimately chose to move Tyrus, born George Murdoch, off Un-PC and onto his own new show called NUFFSAID.

It was recently reported that Tyrus was booted from the show due to an unspecified personal dispute with McHenry, but now it's been revealed that the dispute centers around McHenry's claim that Tyrus had sent her unwanted and unsolicited text messages with lewd, sexual comments, on multiple occasions.

Fox News announced last month that Tyrus would be fronting a new show called NUFFSAID.

The Daily Beast also cited two sources saying Tyrus was known for his off-color "politically incorrect" jokes and "he's got a wild sense of humor, if we're being generous", according to one female Fox employee.

The Daily Beast also reported on behind-the-scenes issues with Tyrus at Fox, made from his appearances on various shows.

Neither Tyrus or McHenry have commented on the story.

Update: Fox News has reached out to Ringside News for a statement which you can find here. Tyrus was questioned by The Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr via Twitter about the incident to which Tyrus responded, "No comment and don't message me again". He then blocked him.

Tyrus appeared on Fox's streaming show The Greg Gutfield show this past weekend. It was said by others with knowledge of Tyrus's professional environment that he had a long history of acting outwardly angry towards crew members. He teamed up with Robert Strauss (aka Robbie E) in a loss to RJ City and former WCW World Heavyweight Champion David Arquette.
