Shahzam knew exactly what he's doing by bringing up the article on stream and acting all baffled and upset even though he knew he was out before the dephh leaks, and it became more apparent with Rawkus gone. He just wants sympathy from the public and he is somehow twisting the managements arm to maybe reconsider their plans. Steel was right. If there was a nuclear war, he will manage to survive and even thrive like a cockroach. I mean he's technically an A list actor simply by being on camera for hours everyday, the guy is so out of touch that he thinks his goodbye tweet is more important than the team's future. Now his selfishness and ego has put the org in a weird spot. He shouldn't have brought up the leaks on stream and put on that victim act of "OH my own team betrayed me".
With that being said, I would like to see him on an ascension team and proving himself again, it would be a good redemption story. Best of luck !
