It looks like last night the Royal Rumble was blowing up Twitter, in all the wrong ways. (Side note: Cesaro was trending at one point. Take a hint, WWE?) It’s pretty interesting to see the reaction of not just current and ex-wrestlers, but artists and comics, too.
Ron Funches, comic– It must suck to work your ass off as a wrestler and see the good spots go to the bosses friends and probably just like trying to book Leno.
Ron Funches, again– oh okay wrestling is just Triple H and friends now 🙁
Shane West, actor- Well
#RoyalRumble is over and I’ve never seen such a disgusted crowd. Sandow and Ziggler misused yet again. YET AGAIN. Diesel was fun to
…see but no Daniel Bryan was a serious mistake. Rare to have the matches better than the actual rumble. Batista out of shape. Unreal
Jill Thompson, artist- I have watched this WWE speed dating commercial 30 times cuz it’s more satisfying than the end of the
Jason Aaron, writer- My son was so excited for the Royal Rumble but ended up learning an important sports lesson: sometimes everyone you cheer for loses.
Check out Foley’s bio!
And of course…
Mick Foley, wrestler- Well, with over 16,000 RT’s on my last message about being disgusted with the
#RoyalRumble, I guess I said what many of you were feeling.
Armando Estrada, wrestling manager and ex-WWE employee- hope
@WWEDanielBryan doesn’t get @ZackRyder treatment. Aka ZackRydered. #nohaha
Armando Estrada- If I had a restaurant & made a great burger & my customers loved my burger. I would stop making burgers & force them to like my chicken!
Armando Estrada- You’re not allowed to get over in
@Wwe unless they want you to. If you do, you can and will be punished. Has happened to many over the years
@IvyTiger Ryback, Bryan, Ryder, Ziggler. Need more?
Lance Storm, ex-wrestler current trainer- support and cheer the guy you want and remain silent for guys you don’t. Negative hijacking can lead to a spiteful response.
Lance Storm- If you want to send a message Chanting won’t do it. Watch only
@WWEDanielBryan segments on RAW, turn other segs off. That’s a message.
Daniel Bryan himself- They try to keep US down and away from the top spots, but they can’t ignore the reactions forever. Keep voicing your opinions.
Even @BBCNewsBeat did a story on the freaking BBC website!- http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/25911039
Me, Classic Simpsons fan and generous lover- Are they saying Boo, or Boo-tista?
Lance Storm is warning that anti-chanting, that is, chanting for someone else other than who’s in the ring or “hijacking” a show will make Vince dig in his heels and start a game of chicken. With the WWE Network and Wrestlemania 30 coming, these are interesting times.
