JBL Confirms Story on Vince and Christian, Matt Hardy Challenges TMZ to Report Positive Story

- Matt Hardy is asking TMZ to pick up on a feel-good story involving him after they published his hotel arrest story last month. Hardy recently met a young fan named Cody Goodman, who is a CHARGE syndrome survivor, at an indie wrestling event. Here’s a photo of the two:
- Last summer we noted that former WWE writer Alex Greenfield told The Fight Network in an interview that at one point, Vince McMahon wanted to put a blue dot over Christian’s face because it bothered Vince. Greenfield said:
“Right before I started, there was a big show, I think it might have been in Toronto. Christian was just so completely over, and everybody thought he was going to get a push at, I think it was the World Heavyweight Championship at that point. We were on the plane one time shortly after I started, and Vince was just like “God damn, I just don’t like his face. His face really bothers me.” I was like, “He’s ugly, Vince?” “No, it’s not that he’s ugly, it’s just, I don’t know, it’s ratty! You know what we should do? That Kennedy gimmick.” And we’re all like, “What?” Some see-on of the Kennedy fortune I guess got arrested for rape in the 1990s at some point. When the woman who was accusing him was on the stand, all of the networks put a blue dot over her face. Vince was like, “God damn, you know what we should do? We should put a blue dot over his face whenever he comes out.” It was the flight to Sheffield, England, also the flight where the Spirit Squad idea was invented. This was a whole flight of bad ideas.”
Greenfield’s story was confirmed on last Monday night’s RAW when Christian came out and JBL mentioned putting a blue dot over his face.
