As we all know, Michael Cole is very passionate
about his job. He’s been doused in JR’s
BBQ sauce, he’s been on the receiving end
of Rock Bottoms, RKO’s, F5’s and he’s
even been “abused” backstage, but he still
shows up for work… even if his boss doesn’t
always show him the love back. A good little
boy like Michael Cole surely hasn’t done
anything silly outside of the WWE, right?
Wrong! Back in 2011, former WWE commentator,
Josh Matthews posted a highly creative tweet
which read, “Chicago!”, expressing his
excitement to commentate in one of WWE’s
more rowdy cities ahead of Monday Night RAW.
In response, Michael Cole simply replied
with the word, “faggot”. News outlets
were quick to report on it and the homophobic
slur landed Cole in a lot of trouble. It couldn’t
have come at a worse time too, a week after
the WWE agreed on a partnership with the G.L.A.A.D.
As punishment, not only did Michael Cole remove
the tweet and apologise, but he was forced
to attend a training session run by GLAAD,
who were alerted about the situation. Next
time, Michael Cole should think twice before
saying things like that, otherwise the WWE
might have to send for Brock Lesnar on him
again.
There have been plenty of examples of photos
on social media that break “kayfabe” and
one that was no different was the “Luke
Harper fan club”. Chris Jericho posted a
photo on his Instagram account with the caption:
“Ladies & Gents, may I introduce the charter
members of the #LukeHarper fan club… #yeahyeahyeah”.
WWE superstars Roman Reigns, Cesaro and Bray
Wyatt, just to name a few, can be seen posing
in the photo wearing Luke Harper shirts. Although
Jericho had no ill-intentions with the post,
WWE management weren’t too happy seeing
a mixture of heels and faces posing together,
especially as “charter members of the Luke
Harper fan club”. I can imagine Vince McMahon’s
reaction was something like this… As a result,
Jericho took down the image, but not before
the WWE pulled Harper from a few shows first.
Randy Orton is known for being a bit of a
joker backstage, pulling numerous pranks and
ribs, among other things. But on one occasion,
the 13-time world champion took things a little
too far after he posted a photo with a fan
on Twitter along with the caption: “Look
@KimKlro [his wife] I met the Latino Ms. Piggy
today at the gym. I wish you were there to
have a good laugh with me! #MsPig” Unsurprisingly,
the post landed Orton in hot water, not only
with WWE management, but with the WWE Universe
too. Fans, angered by his comparison of the
woman to Miss Piggy from The Muppets, showered
his Twitter feed with their own comments,
calling him a “jerk” and a “bully”.
Orton argued that the fan was rude to his
wife on social media but humiliating her online
to his millions of Twitter followers… c’mon
now. In the end, The Viper was forced to remove
the post and apologise for his actions. It’s
lucky Vince McMahon didn’t fire Orton for
his actions, but it was probably for his own
safety, considering what happened last time
when he tried to do that.
Sometimes you must be careful with what you
say on the Internet and for the 24-year-old
piece of gold, Lio Rush, he found that out
the hard way. Rush found himself in the deep
end backstage after he made a joke on Twitter
about the release of former WWE superstar,
Emma. The tweet, read, “I guess these are
things that happen when you’re not truly
ready for Asuka”. The tweet was met with
backlash from fellow WWE performers, including
Bray Wyatt, who responded “You ain’t gonna
make it here with the wolves, kid” and Peyton
Royce, who replied with “Wow, kid. Didn’t
you just get here? Professionalism goes a
long way”. The heat was so bad that the
WWE almost terminated Rush’s contract but
luckily, they didn’t. Instead, The Man of
the Hour was pulled from many NXT events and
he wrote a lengthy apology, but not everyone
was convinced. Now that all of this has blown
over, Rush is enjoying his time on 205 Live
as the 24-year-old piece of gold, and on RAW
as Bobby Lashley’s hype-man, or rather,
the kid who points to Bobby Lashley’s ass.
Lars Sullivan sure lives up to his nickname,
“The Freak”, possessing brute strength
and freakish genetics that makes him a one-man
wrecking ball. But, on social media, there’s
a different side to him that the WWE probably
would like to forget about. In the past, Sullivan,
who went by the username “Disenfranchised”
on a bodybuilding forum, was very controversial
online with racial and Homophobic posts and
he even called out KFC for being “lower
class food” …I’m hoping that post was
a “freak accident”. One of his past comments
though, that was no freak accident came back
to haunt him; a derogatory comment he made
towards RAW commissioner, Stephanie McMahon.
Sullivan commented on a video featuring Stephanie
McMahon and wrote, “Very sexy, thanks for
the fap vid.” Jerking off to his potential
boss probably isn’t the greatest way to
start off his main roster debut. That was
in the past though, but also, can you blame
him? It has been teased over the past few
weeks whether The Freak will be joining team
red or team blue. The shouts heard in his
promo package are probably from him getting
off to Stephanie. The sensible choice would
be for Lars Sullivan to join the blue brand
as RAW already has their fair share of monsters.
But anyway, let’s just hope his past actions
don’t come back to bite him.
