The idea being Erick Rowan being fired is because WWE wants fans to believe that he's an important character in the stories. Lower level characters are rarely in danger of being in these types of predicaments. Rowan is still scheduled to work the Royal Rumble, so some sort of resolution should come for his character in the near future. Management has lost a little bit of faith in him, but they want to keep the push going for a bit.

When word broke out that a couple of WWE performers were doing silent protests during TLC against management by working at a lackluster pace, fans immediately started wondering which wrestlers were guilty of doing that. One of the names being tossed around right now is Big Show, whose match with Erick Rowan was not rated too high by the fans. The former world heavyweight champion has enough backstage stroke to not get fired for protesting.
