Correspondent Approached By WWE Staff At MYC To Not Post Spoilers
Friday, August 10, 2018
It looks like WWE is trying to keep a lid on spoilers being leaked at the recent Mae Young Classic Tapings.
Two different WWE Correspondents at Full Sail University noted that there were WWE Employees speaking to at least two fans in the crowd who were texting spoilers from the show. A longtime WWE Correspondent noted that it seemed like they were throttling data on Twitter towards the end of the tapings.
JJ Williams, who for several years has provided WWE NXT updates for The Wrestling Observer, revealed on Twitter that he was told to not post finishes anymore by someone who works for the company. Williams, who has been a major supporter of WWE developmental and has put a lot of eyes on the product over the years, recently wrote, "I've been told to not post finishes anymore by someone who works for the company."
Williams continued, "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."
Below are the related Twitter posts from Williams. It looks like he deleted all MYC posts made during the tapings.
