WWE doesn’t tag their former Superstars on social media. This is a tactic that Miro called dumb and most unprofessional. That is still how the company operates.
Matt Hardy cleared things up when it comes to WWE’s social media policy. He explained that WWE’s social media team isn’t allowed to mention Superstars who are no longer with the company. It makes zero sense because those Superstars still exist, but it is just how their system works.
That being said, AEW doesn’t have the same policy about snubbing stars on social media.
WWE social media folks aren’t allowed to mention talent like @ToBeMiro, because they now only exist in the entire professional wrestling universe, as opposed to solely @WWE. It’s just their policy. I love how @AEWrestling acknowledges all of pro wrestling, competition or not..
Interestingly enough, Matt Hardy did tag WWE in that tweet. Their social media team probably saw it in their verified mentions. So, they knew that Matt Hardy was calling them out.
No amount of calling foul on WWE’s policy will get them to change their minds. It might be about them not wanting to promote people outside of the company, but it all boils down to business and controlling their narrative.
