• WWE Tells A Fan (Who Works For A Dirt Sheet) To Stop Posting Spoilers For The Mae Young Classic Or He Would Be Booted From The Event

JJ Williams, a fan who used to provide NXT spoilers/updates to the Wrestling Observer, won’t be doing that anymore because a WWE employee told him not to.

Williams noted that a WWE employee approached him during the Mae Young Classic tapings and told him not to post spoilers or he would be asked to leave the event.

Below is what Williams posted about this:

“I was approached and specifically told that they would have to ask me to leave for posting finishes. I asked is that the new rule for everyone? I was told no, it was just the rule for me because I ‘work for a dirt sheet’.

I was also told that if it was any other fan they wouldn’t care. Simply because the Wrestling Observer endorses me as their reliable person on site I have now been singled out and am less than a fan to WWE.

At this point I have no idea what I can and can not post. Any photos from tonight would be a spoiler as to who advanced, these tickets were $50 per night and yes I always pay for my own tickets to events so why would I risk being removed over petty drama?

The worst part is all I’ve ever wanted to do was promote the talent with photos and gifs in addition to showing up. There’s nothing I can do, I’m not even shocked, mostly disappointed, and even if I’m less than ‘just a fan’ I’ll still be at Full Sail tonight having a great time.”
