Lane mentions that Reby Hardy (Matt Hardy’s wife) got into a Twitter dispute this past week with a WWE employee who tweeted defamatory things about Matt. The employee implied that she’d like to see Matt dead, and Reby obviously didn’t take kindly to that. Gilbertti says that WWE is a publicly traded company, and it’s incredible to him that this woman hasn’t been reprimanded by the company yet.
Lane points out that ‘Superstar’ Billy Graham had some very negative things to say about Shane McMahon after Shane’s leap from the top of the cell at last month’s PPV. Gilbertti says Shane got paid $2 Million last year to be a living, breathing stunt man; that’s what he gets paid for. Russo wonders if mainstream fans want to see performers take those kind of risks, and Vito says it’s the marks who write the show that are to blame for those types of stunts.
Lane mentions that Nia Jax was granted a leave of absence from WWE, reportedly just to get some rest and recovery and to get away from WWE’s tough schedule for a while. Gilbertti says that there has been so many issues in the women’s division as of late and he wishes these women would just stop complaining and do their jobs.
That sums up today’s episode of Vince Russo’s The Brand. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya tomorrow for another recap!
