• NXT Wrestler Oney Lorcan Fires Back At Triple H After Recent Comments
During a recent conference call, Triple H said that if wrestlers have a problem, then they should go and address it to WWE officials, and not vent their frustrations on Social Media:
“I don’t understand people airing issues. If you have one talk to us. If you put that out there in the media that’s not a way to go about business. If I had a complaint with a talent I don’t go on Twitter and complain to them, I speak to them. I’ve never understood that process if it’s legit.
There’s a silliness to it, a maturity issue of it’s not how you handle business. Anybody that is out there that is serious about it [gaining their release] that’s talking on the internet, using their phones, you handle your business like a professional.
We’re in professional wrestling and the keyword there is professional. That’s what we are trying to change about the business and make people more – professional.”
This led to NXT wrestler Oney Lorcan, who recently requested his release from WWE, posting the following on Twitter:
“THE MATURE PROFESSIONAL THING TO SAY WOULD BE NO COMMENT AND HAVE A PRIVATE CONVERSATION PROMOTER TO INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR INSTEAD OF BURYING TALENT PUBLICLY TO THE MEDIA THATS HOW I DO BUSINESS ITS ALL ABOUT THE GAME AND HOW YOU PLAY IT”
Oney later deleted his tweet.
