- Last summer we noted that former WWE writer Alex Greenfield told The Fight Network in an interview that at one point, Vince McMahon wanted to put a blue dot over Christian's face because it bothered Vince. Greenfield said:
"Right before I started, there was a big show, I think it might have been in Toronto. Christian was just so completely over, and everybody thought he was going to get a push at, I think it was the World Heavyweight Championship at that point. We were on the plane one time shortly after I started, and Vince was just like "God damn, I just don't like his face. His face really bothers me." I was like, "He's ugly, Vince?" "No, it's not that he's ugly, it's just, I don't know, it's ratty! You know what we should do? That Kennedy gimmick." And we're all like, "What?" Some see-on of the Kennedy fortune I guess got arrested for rape in the 1990s at some point. When the woman who was accusing him was on the stand, all of the networks put a blue dot over her face. Vince was like, "God damn, you know what we should do? We should put a blue dot over his face whenever he comes out." It was the flight to Sheffield, England, also the flight where the Spirit Squad idea was invented. This was a whole flight of bad ideas."
Greenfield's story was confirmed on last Monday night's RAW when Christian came out and JBL mentioned putting a blue dot over his face.
- Matt Hardy is asking TMZ to pick up on a feel-good story involving him after they published his hotel arrest story last month. Hardy recently met a young fan named Cody Goodman, who is a CHARGE syndrome survivor, at an indie wrestling event. Hardy wrote:
"I have a question. Why doesn't @TMZ run this story? Ex-WWE Wrestler Matt Hardy meets C.H.A.R.G.E. survivor Cody Goodman in Kentucky, and makes Cody's dreams come true?Here's a chance for TMZ to prove that they're not all about 'doom & gloom', but yet about celebrities giving back. The biggest problem that I have with the media right now is the fact that only the negative stuff sees the light of day.. Why would any media outlet not report the great, positive stuff like this story? If you feel the same, go to TMZ and let them know."
