[WWE] WWE Censors ByteThis! Warrior Segment


From WWE.com:

A Parody Too Far?
Sept. 29, 2005

Last night on “Byte This!,” what was intended to be a light-hearted parody on the Ultimate Warrior’s official statement regarding his refusal to appear on the show may have gone a little overboard. Todd Grisham and Matt Striker went into a direction that was not the original intent of the producers of “Byte This!” or WWE.

This morning, Grisham said , “I think we both got caught up in the moment. I guess I was still hot about Warrior referring to Droz as a cripple and me as “queer,” but that’s still no excuse. Matt and I went into business for ourselves.”

“We were having fun with it,” Striker added. “I’m actually a big fan. There was no script, except the verbiage that was his.”

Watch this edited version of “Byte This!” that better reflects the original intention of the skit.

Matthew Michaels is editor emeritus of Pulse Wrestling, and has been since the site launched.
