5. Zack Ryder Pissed At WWE For Wanting To Shoot The Otis/Mandy Rose Segment In His Pool
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Zack Ryder revealed on Major Wrestling Figures podcast that WWE asked his fiance, NXT wrestler Chelsea Green, if they could film the Otis/Mandy Rose segment at his pool.
Below is what Ryder said:
“I’m sitting by the pool with Chelsea and she has a weird look on her face, checking her phone, and I’m like, ‘Babe, what’s up?’ She’s like, ‘Someone from WWE asked me if Otis and Mandy Rose and a camera crew can come here to film a pool scene for SmackDown.’ I was shaking in anger. You fired me, but you wanna use my pool?”
Curt Hawkins added:
“There are no pools in Florida, everyone knows that. There’s only one and you have it.”
Ryder said that he was about to tweet it, but he changed his mind.
Hawkins said that he should’ve been flattered about it:
“How many people in Florida have pools? How many people live in Florida, are associated with WWE, under contract and have pools? You should have been flattered, not pissed.”
Ryder said that he wasn’t pleased that WWE asked Green about it instead of him:
“I was pissed. They didn’t ask me, they asked her! I guess they were taping RAW and SmackDown at the Performance Center. My good friends [John] Morrison and Miz said they were coming over and texted me and said, ‘Can I bring Otis?’ I thought it was a rib because they knew the story. That pissed me off too. But Otis showed up and it wasn’t a rib. I don’t know Otis, though I wrestled him, this guy is pure entertainment. I fell in love with this man.”
WWE didn’t use his pool in the end as they found another spot.
