WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray is known to not mince words and can also say a lot of controversial things from time to time. He did so recently after he stated that Jon Moxley should have apologized to the fans for letting them down. It seems Renee Paquette called him out again recently.
This led to a lot of backlash as even Moxley’s wife Renee Paquette called out Bully Ray. Even Mick Foley stated that Jon Moxley doesn’t need to apologize to anyone.
During Jon Moxley’s GCW World Title match against Homicide at GCW’s The WRLD event, fans started chanting “F*** Bully Ray” in the opening seconds of the match. Bully Ray had a very sarcastic response to the backlash as well.
While speaking on her podcast Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha, Renee Paquette talked about Bully Ray’s controversial remarks. Paquette revealed that Bully Ray didn’t apologize for his words and added that Ray should be the one to apologize.
So yeah, I mean, it sucks. So just for context for anyone who doesn’t know…Bully said that he thought that Jon should have apologized to the audience and apologized. [Bully said] he doesn’t necessarily have to apologize to the boys in the back and the girls in the back for the time that was taken off but people that have bought tickets and wanted to see Jon Moxley and blah, blah, blah. And there could not be a more bullsh*t trash take.
Honestly, my first reaction to it was like, I just thought it was like some shock jock sh*t and I was like ‘he doesn’t actually think that. There’s no way he actually believes that Jon needs to apologize for taking time off to better himself.’ By the way, three months is also nothing in the scope of what wrestling is, and also in the scope of his life. Three months is nothing so for him to go and do the things that he needed to do for himself, for our family and for our daughter, that’s for us. It’s not for anybody else. And I could not be more proud of him for doing that in a business that is so notorious with addiction issues.
Bully has not apologized for it and I don’t even need Bully to apologize for and I assure you, Jon could give a sh*t. It’s annoying to even be talking about at this point. The fact that Jon is back in wrestling and he looks like a million bucks and he feels good,”
We will have to wait and see whether Bully Ray himself will apologize for what he said about Jon Moxley or not. At this point in time, it seems highly unlikely from the looks of it.
