WWE confiscating Zack Ryder signs.

Saw this on a couple of sites.....

 

'WWE ordered O2 Arena security to confiscate all signs from fans relating to Zack Ryder at yesterday's Monday Night Raw taping at in London, England.

 

The Raw Superstar has been encouraging fans to bring Ryder related signs to WWE events, such as "Broski of the Week." He often goes on Twitter acknowledging Ryder signs shown on television. He asked for an image of the "Zack Ryder = Ratings" sign that briefly appeared on Raw. That too was confiscated.

 

Ryder was backstage at last night's show, but was not used.'

 

 

Seeing how popular Jersey Shore is at the mo you'd think WWE would want to push the talented and charismatic Ryder.

 

Where's the love? :(

Thats ridiculous! How counterproductive is that? "Oh we don't want someone getting over unless we SAY they can get over!" With their patchy record of star-making in recent years they should be glad an act is taking off. Like the OP says, with the Jersey Shore runnin' wild at the moment you would have thought WWE would be dying to capitalise further after their Snooki success.

If true, Ryder must be pissed. Why can't security just confiscate signs which would be bad to be on primetime tv (i.e. 'Big Show has fucking sausage fingers') why do we have this pettiness?

 

Incidently, Ryder mentioned his youtube show getting high ratings/views on Superstar last week, just before losing to Khali in what was an adequately comeptitve match.

This was always going to happen. Get yourself over at your peril. WWE has never liked anyone doing stuff like this. WWE doesnt like superstar wrestlers who could potentially draw money for them if they have gotten over before the pen has hit the paper in Titan Towers. Just because we like Zack, seems to be a bad thing for his career. Look at Scotty Goldman. He was brilliant on his webshow, he already was well liked by a portion of the wrestling community, had someone who could speak up for him and he was handy in the ring. But the Brooklyn Brawler and Dusty Rhodes didnt like him, then he had a shit match with Umanga so he got sacked because he was apparently useless in developmental. All it takes is for some 60-year-old road agent or someone like Dean Malenko to say "I dont get it" and tell Vince to fuck it off and this happens. Its pretty daft when you think about it.

Probably because they don't want him getting more exposure than the top liners?

 

WWE has always stopped guys lower on the card from stealing the show so-to-speak, an example being limiting the moveset of the cruiserweights year ago. Their concern was it would make the main events look shabby in comparison with not as much action. So I guess it's a similar thing where they don't want signs for guys who job on Superstars to get any more exposure.
