Van Wagenen walked back on his comments later, tweeting:
Can't we all just get along? Apologies to all affected by my very dickish tweet. I do respect TNA for thriving in a very tough business.— Eric Van Wagenen (@EricVanWagenen) July 6, 2016
@CR_TNAFZ My dislike was based solely on the producing. I respect and admire anyone who gets in the ring and risks their life for a crowd.— Eric Van Wagenen (@EricVanWagenen) July 7, 2016
- While Van Wagenen was not a fan of the show, Mick Foley was a big fan of the segment. Foley wrote on Facebook:
THE LAST DELETION
Have you seen it? Love it or hate it, it has people talking - and this meme, from ?#?WrestlingLoL? had me popping!vYou HAVE to admire Matt Hardy's level of commitment to his character and TNA's for that matter. No dipping their toe in the shallow end here; they dove right in! I'm still not quite sure what it is I saw, but I do know that I will never forget it. ?#?TheFinalDeletion? had me laughing in some places, cringing in others, worrying about the state of Jim Cornette's heart in a couple specific instances - and just staring open-eyed in astonishment at others. I truly enjoyed this unique viewing experience, but, despite the probability that I will quote from it, wear T-shirts from it, borrow memes from it, and pronounce the word "over" with an "ah"....OVAH... for years to come - hope nothing like it is ever attempted again.
Let me know what you think.
