• WWE Star Dismisses Rumors Of Having Backstage Heat
We recently noted that Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that former WWE United Kingdom Champion Tyler Bate has backstage heat in the WWE after he refused to work a main roster tour when contacted by WWE officials because he had other plans.
Below is what Meltzer said:

It looks like Tyler has shot down these rumors by tweeting the following:
People love making things up ?
