Former WWE Creative Team Member Blasts Hardy/SSeries Angle

Nick Paglino


Seth Mates, former WWE creative team member, recently posted a blog over on Newsday.com. criticizing WWE for the recent Jeff Hardy storyline they ran last Sunday at Survivor Series. Mates wrote, “Fact: Jeff Hardy is one strike away from his WWE career ending…More importantly, he could be one relapse away from endangering his own life. To turn his real-life struggles into a storyline is sick and twisted.”

Mates went on to criticize Vince’s decision to have The Undertaker put Vickie Guerrero in a casket near the anniversary of Eddie’s death. He wrote, “Vince’s life is wrestling…His family’s life is wrestling. He’s surrounded by wrestling people and has never wanted for anything. And because his philosophy is ‘what’s right for the business is what’s right,’ then he feels everyone around him should give the same, even though they have complications in their daily lives that Vince wouldn’t even understand. And the fact that Vince surrounds himself with enablers — “yes men” whose survival on the business is contingent on keeping Vince happy and telling him what he wants to hear — doesn’t help matters.” You can read the entire blog at this link.
