• Vince McMahon Insulted The Revival After Their Match With The New Day

FTR (f.k.a The Revival) were embroiled in a rivalry with The New Day for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship for a couple of months last year. They had some good matches, but WWE CEO Vince McMahon wasn’t really a fan of their work.

While speaking on the Jim Cornette Experience, FTR revealed how McMahon insulted them backstage after one of their matches with The New Day.

“We had a match with New Day. We were so…all four of us came to the back, we were so proud of this match, and we loved it so much. We were happy because it wasn’t an action-packed match, it was a match that told a great little story. The fans got behind it and they loved it.

We came to the back and Vince was waiting right in the middle of the Gorilla with his hands in his pocket.

One thing I’ll never forget he said, he looked at me and Cash and he said, ‘Everyone tells me you are the next Arn and Tully, you’re the next great tag team. Well, that’s the problem, you guys aren’t Arn and Tully, you’re just great professional wrestlers.’

And to me and Cash, we took that beaming with pride, he meant it as an insult. So I’m thinking to myself, “So you’re comparing us to two of the greatest of all time who have drawn a sh*t-ton of money in this business and you’re meaning that as an insult?”
