It appears the relationship between Jordan Myles and members of WWE NXT management did not improve over the weekend.
Myles sent out a tweet Sunday evening issuing a rather ambiguous ultimatum: “If WWE doesn’t reach out to me by tomorrow I’ll make sure my voice and my movement will be heard.”
On Oct. 27th, Myles posted a photo of a t-shirt originally designed for him, which featured a logo that bore resemblance to historically racist imagery used to stereotype African-Americans. In the tweet he tagged both Triple H and Vince McMahon, questioning their “vision” for him as a performer.
In subsequent social media posts, he would go on to call the WWE system a “fraud” and questioned the company’s decision to bring back Hulk Hogan despite previously terminating his contract for racist statements made in a leaked sext ape.
WWE later released the following statement:
“Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.”
If wwe doesn’t reach out to me by tomorrow I’ll make sure my voice and my movement will be heard..#ForTheCulture
