Joey Ryan Shoots On Bill DeMott and John Laurinaitis
Former TNA star Joey Ryan has been Tweeting about his experiences trying out for WWE last year, and revealed some of the things head trainer Bill DeMott said:
“At WWE camp, Bill DeMott said nobody on indies is as good as NXT guys. I’d LOVE to debate Bill DeMott on what he thinks ‘good wrestling’ is.”
“‘Don’t wrestle the way John Cena does. Wrestle the way that I teach you.’ – Bill DeMott at WWE camp.”
“Another thing Bill DeMott said at the WWE camp is that ‘WWE retrained Daniel Bryan or he wouldn’t be as good as he is today.'”
He also revealed what John Laurinaitis told him 2010:
“Trying to get WWE job in 2010, John Laurinaitis told me ‘I have enough 5’9″ guys. I can’t make money with Daniel Bryan, how can I with you?'”
“Candice Michelle went to PWG in 2008 & raved about me to John Laurinaitis. When I saw him, he said ‘What does a Diva know about wrestling?'”
This is what Ryan wrote in an email to the Developmental offices:
“My talents and abilities allow me to travel the world and make a full-time living in professional wrestling, which is not something that most WWE Superstars could do on their own.
“You have coaches in place that have never drawn a dime in their careers trying to determine who and who cannot draw money which is the true flaw in your system. I have had far more successful names in wrestling, some within WWE itself, rave about my creativeness, character acting and ability to engage an audience and your evaluators missed it. Perhaps it’s time for you to reevaluate your evaluators.
“Good luck in finding your next big superstar.”

WWE Likely Leaving NBC Universal
It’s quite likely now that WWE will leave NBC Universal as they failed to come to a renewal agreement in the exclusive negotiation period. This means WWE can shop their flagship TV shows around to other networks.
It may be that NBC are hoping other Networks won’t offer WWE what they want, and therefore will be able to bring down the asking price.
WWE issued the following statement:
“WWE’s exclusive negotiating period with NBCU for our flagship television programs, ‘Raw’ and ‘SmackDown,’ has now expired. While we were unable to reach an agreement with NBCU during this period, we have certainly appreciated our long and productive partnership. With year-round, live programming that is highly coveted by programmers, distributors and advertisers, we are extremely excited about our future. We look forward to engaging with potential partners who recognize the value of having the #1 show on cable and live content delivered 52 weeks a year.”
