WWE Live Event Problems, Internal Reaction to Vince Ribbing Obama

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Thursday, December 26th, 2013

- Regarding the lack of organization with WWE’s live events department, this past week they set up media calls for Cody Rhodes to promote the December 30th Toronto live event. The next day they changed it to The Miz. Then, when Miz was doing the calls, WWE told the reporters that Miz has been pulled from the Toronto event, which means he was likely needed for the live RAW that night in Richmond, Virginia.

- We noted before that Vince McMahon took a shot at President Obama taking a photo of himself at the Nelson Mandela funeral by having the RAW announcers take a “selfie” on RAW recently. The reaction backstage was a lot of people hated it because they felt the announcers made the Big Show and Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes and Goldust match, which was to build towards a title match, seem unimportant, and that it was a “first time ever” match and those matches are so rare.

    There are better ways he could rib Obama. Like, say, sit in at the announcer’s desk for Cole while Cole is out on some sort of assignment, and when Cole gets trapped and jumped by some band of thugs, have Cole call McMahon for help and McMahon just hang up on him. A la Benghazi.
