Jordan Myles’ first WWE merchandise came off as racially insensitive. Then #ForTheCulture started in a big way because of it as social media gravitated toward this issue.
WWE said that Myles collaborated with them on the idea for his merchandise and he also approved it. Now Myles is speaking about how uncomfortable the situation was. He also says that Baker Landon lied to his face about what Triple H wanted.
When I originally saw the design I was uncomfortable. Rather than addressing the issue I decided to counter offer with another.
Baker Landon lied to my face! He said HHH wanted this design so my hands were tied. I spoke with @TripleH in person and his impression was I approved
The former ACH also included a screenshot from his email where it said that Triple H had a “revision” for the logo and he wanted a “more teethy” design.
Road Dogg apparently wanted the shirt in gray, but that’s obviously not the color that they went with as it was a red smile-looking design on a black t-shirt.
