-On an episode of “The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro,” Lilian Garcia and Sean “X-Pac” Waltman talked about the dress code in WWE instituted a dozen years ago under John Laurinaitis’s run as V.P. of Talent Relations and why it’s different than in the NBA. “What happened was, after a while there was the, ‘Oh ok we’ll dress casually but nice, we’re traveling’ and that kind of thing. Then the guys started coming with cut off shorts, obnoxious comments on t-shirts, and stuff and that was when Vince McMahon was like, ‘That’s it. You guys represent this brand of WWE, we call you Superstars but you’re not dressing as a superstar.’ He said, ‘Once you leave the house, you’re representing the brand, then through the airport, anywhere you’re traveling, wherever. I want you to be dressing up nicely.’ And you know the guys definitely and the girls, whatever, we were like ‘What??’ because… we kept saying, ‘Alright, I totally get it, and I always look nice.’ But like for the females, we dressed in high heels shoes and we’re driving like 2,300 miles. And I drove by myself a lot. So I’m thinking holy crap, what if something happens to me on the side of the road and I’m dressed like a little, you know.” Waltman added: “NBA players are pampered. I don’t give two sh—s what anyone says, they’re pampered and we are f—ing pirates. We rent our own cars, we pay for our own hotels, pay for our own food. It’s way f—in’ differen My personal policy was to dress and look like a star when I left the house, but, you know, if I didn’t, I’ll be damned if I’m going to have somebody take my money because of it. That’s bullsh—.” Watch the clip HERE.
-WWE is advertising Dean Ambrose & Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt & A.J. Styles for the Nov. 29 Columbia, S.C. house show. This could be a spoiler, but it could also be an outdated old line-up put together before Orton joined the Wyatt Family.
