There is some backstage heat on Bill DeMott right now as some felt he was working to stiff down in Deep South Wrestling. Some noted that DeMott was playing the role of drill sergeant by doing non stop training with lots of screaming and yelling. DeMott was also accused of verbally assaulting the guys telling them that they would be fired if they kept working at the current rate. It was really said to have driven morale down. Apparently word got back to WWE management and a number of the developmental talents were called and asked about it.
It is worth noting that some of the talents down there pay to get in. It’s a training facility where the guys can learn how to wrestle and possibly be called up to the main WWE roster. Some just thought it was way over the line and so did WWE management apparently.
More details as we get them.
