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 Roman Reigns commented on the recent controversy as well.
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 the SI Media podcast, Roman Reigns talked about Bully Ray wanting Jon Moxley to apologize to fans. The Tribal Chief stated that he understands why Bully Ray said what he did.
“I didn’t actually see the take from Bubba, but I’ve seen some of the responses to it. And I look at it kind of in both perspectives. I understand what Bubba is saying only because I’ve been in these systems and worked for, you know, a billion-dollar promotion and entertainment company, being WWE. And Bubba has too and these are some of the mindsets of kind of the direction that you can handle some of these situations because, at the end of the day, we are performers. We’re entertainers and we want to be there for our fanbase.
I mean, we continued through a pandemic, you know what I mean? Obviously, it’s a business and you know, we’re all trying to make a living. But that’s what makes our product special. For pretty much any promotion, there’s no season it, you know? So we try to give our fanbase as much as we can.
So I can see where he’s [Bully] coming from, but I think in this day and age, there’s not like too much kayfabe. I might be one of the most kayfabe performers out there. There’s so many cracks to see through, the blinds to see into backstage now and there’s so many people getting rumors and info and breaking this news and stuff like that. But I think in this day and age, especially with, you know, how much awareness there is for mental health and taking care of yourself and prioritizing you.”
Reigns ended it by saying that Moxley didn’t owe an apology to anyone. 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.
