Dax Harwood is the babyface we didn't realise we needed. The man comes across as such a genuine, wholesome human being. I really want to see FTR succeed in the most way they possibly can.

The tweet is a thread of posts from Dax explaining the issues he suffered last year. The man is a true inspiration.

Apparently all the referees get their faces blurred out of any footage in WWE videogames so they don't have to pay royalties. 

 

This is also the reason they dont have real referees in the games as well. its a complete farce

Isn't it quite a smart business move? Doesn't seem much value in paying royalties to refs. They're not going to sell more games if they're in it. I can see why they'd do it.

You think people buy WWE 2K games to play as Nia Jax, T-Bar, Hacksaw Jim Duggan etc? You may play as a lot of the roster but no one who was debating buying it suddenly said “Drew Gulak is a playable character? Get in my basket”.

My thoughts are that they have been going for a more realistic simulation game for years. Yet when it was more arcade based they always had one or both hebnars in the game as a model. Same as the commentators seems such a weird thing to blur or not include their models.

It's to do with the budget that 2K set for royalties apparently and can't pay for everyone they show in the game so people who no longer work for the company would be on the cut list first. There's a pretty good explanation in the replies to Chiodas tweet.

They edited out Ventura from commentary for years so Gorilla or Tony were talking to themselves all night to save paying him, blurring a refs face to save a few quids nothing.

It’s nothing new. It’s why they don’t make referee figures because they would have to pay a royalty and also, who do you make without pissing off the other refs?

This was also similar to when Hogan got a deal where all WCW figures scanned up as Hogan rather then the generic barcode reference meaning the WCW guys were often getting no royalties from toy sales because it all went to the Hulkster
