Vince reportedly furious with WWE wrestlers who tweeted about Double or Nothing

Quote:
Via Ringside News, Meltzer believes Vince and the rest of The McMahon family are 'ungodly furious at all those people who were tweeting'.

Meltzer said: “The only thing I can say is that everyone in the McMahon family has to be ungodly furious at all those people who were tweeting because it wasn’t just like Sasha Banks because when she did it it was like, ‘Okay I get this.’

"You know or Karl Anderson… Peyton Royce has got to… you know. I wasn’t so overt with Peyton Royce, but it can’t be looked upon well… Matt Hardy um… to a degree [he can get away with it] but, they can’t be happy with their own talent tweeting about the rival show and putting it over.”

Any promoter would be pissed at their talent gushing over their competition no?

Makes sense. Why wouldn't Vince be mad at this?

All this confirms is that Vince does view them as legitimate competition even at this stage.

He better view them as competition, because that show cleaned WWE's clock. Much better than anything they've done all year at the very least. Only the last TakeOver was up there with it.

Great, now expect a bunch of wrestlers to suddenly lose their push or disappear from television.

It's funny, because I know for a fact that Vince, his writers, and practically all the higher ups were watching Double or Nothing just to see what it would be like. Getting to know their competition. If they are all allowed to watch it, why can't the wrestlers?

I doubt Sasha gives a shit.

In fact, I'm amazed she hasn't done more stuff like this considering the rumours of her wanting out etc

FFS Vince, give it a rest. Its 2019. Your company is making more money then ever before. Let your staff enjoy whatever the fuck they want.

It's not that they aren't allowed to watch it, it's the fact that they were publicly promoting it and acknowledging it.

Re: Vince reportedly furious with WWE wrestlers who tweeted about Double or Nothing

Well, they're independent contractors. They have no allegiance to WWE as a company. That's how the McMahon family wants it and treats them. Employees have a vested interest in seeing their company succeed - independent contractors want to see all companies succeed as it gives them more places to work.

I mean WWE succeeds and it goes to VKM vanity ventures (XFL) or political runs (Linda self funded over $100M in her two failed Senate runs).
