Former WWE NXT head trainer Bill DeMott has broken his silence since resigning from the position over two months ago amid accusations of bullying, harassment, sexist and racist comments. DeMott appeared on Vince Russo’s new podcast to talk about why the blame was cast in his direction:
“I always use the term it’s never the quarterback, it’s the coach,” said Demott. “Millennials, I think right that’s what this generation is called the millennials. I think it’s in the whole world. So what I can say and what I will say is as a dad as you are, as I am, I try to figure that out to keep my children away from that entitlement.”
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon infamously used the term “millennials” when expressing his frustration over the lack of ambition among the WWE roster while on an episode of Steve Austin’s podcast. DeMott elaborated on his comments to a degree after Russo insinuated that DeMott had to coddle his students.
“I guess it’s old school that you get what you earn and you try to earn what you want,” said DeMott. ‘I think that’s all I am going to say about that because I think no matter what the case, Walmart, Publix, IBM, I always use IBM I don’t know why, I go to a lot of management seminars and that’s a lot of the conversation, the opening conversation: ‘What do we do when they don’t like that?’ And I want to walk out because I’m not going to learn anything if I’m still trying to figure out. It’s tough, it’s going to be tough for whoever has to figure out what they want tomorrow.”
