"You want to know what I think? I think that Steve Austin is an asshole, Vince McMahon is an asshole, and Barack Obama is a stupid son of a bitch. Fuck that stupid n****r Obama, fuck the goverment, and fuck the U-S-A."
Andy Leavine, WWE Summer Slam, August 15th, 2011
"Due to Mr.Leavine's awful, slanderous comment towards the president of these United States, I can inform you that his contract with World Wrestling Entertainment has been terminated, and he will never be spoken of on this show again."
Vince McMahon, WWE RAW, August 16th, 2011
"Wrestling was, and still is my passion. I'd of loved to wrestle for the rest of my life, but when Vince comes up to you and says "Andy, We need you. I have a cheque for $10 Million in my pocket, and it's yours if you do something for me." ... You f***ing do it."
Andy Leavine, POW Magazine, August 15th, 2021
"Rock, John Cena, Steve Austin, it wasn't enough. It wasn't drawing the numbers I wanted, but I knew, if I could start some controversy, enough to shake up the f***ing white house?I'd damn sure do it. What I asked him to do? Was it right? Hell no. But the next night on RAW? 19.1 rating. Near enough a fith of America watched that evening, and anyone wants to tell me I shouldn't of done it, they're stupid."
Triple H, POW Magazine, August 15th, 2021
"Had the entire world, wrestling or otherwise, tuning in to RAW the next night, desperate to see the outcome, and even though it ended that night with no storylines or matches, it lead to so many of those who just tuned in out of interest in the biggest event in the World right now, discover that they enjoyed pro wrestling. Damn, Paul's a clever b*****d.
John Cena, POW Magazine, August 15th, 2021
I knew it all along, they didn't cut his microphone. F***ing knew it. Ten years on, and the truth comes out? Or maybe I'm wrong, it's not the truth, and he's f***ing playing us again? Who knows? I mean, I was in the WWE at the time, and I still have no clue!
Steve Austin, POW Magazine, August 15th, 2021
Who'd of thunk it? The most controversial promo in the history of the WWE, wasn't cut by Steve Austin, The Rock, Vince McMahon or even CM Punk. It was cut by 2011 Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine, and it was all Triple H's idea. The WWE faced a hell of a lot of backlash, despite everyone in the World thinking it was a shoot. Leavine became one of the most hated men in America, but he claims, once the truth was revealed, that his family and two of his friends knew the truth, and the pay was well worth it. The Leavine controversy was the single greatest thing to happen in the WWE and wrestling as a whole, bringing in over 4.2 million new fans (credit: PWInsider survey) to Wrestling. With a whole new audience, how would the next ten years play out, with one of the most anticipated Wrestlemania matches of all time coming up, one can only begin to imagine the buy rates. So whilst patriots riot outside of WWE HQ, Triple H is rolling around in hundred dollar bills, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to a new era, welcome to the most watched time in WWE history, welcome to WWE: The aftermath of the most controversial moment in the history of Wrestling.
What do you guys think of this for an opening post? Does it intereast you? Also, no offence to any black people on this forum, I highly doubt Andy is a racist, and neither am I.
