Author's Note: As I was about to click "Submit" on the original story I had written, I got a phone call from Sean Waltman. He has given me permission to use the following quotes as his direct response to the allegations made against him, given to me by two different sources. The phone call with Sean took place "after" my call-in to Justin LaBar's live radio show today where I first broke this story.
I was told by two sources in the past two days that Waltman is viewed as a serious liability by WWE management for a variety of reasons, and thus, his chances of being used on WWE's 1,000th episode of Raw in two weeks are "slim to none". WWE's promotion last night of a DX reunion in St. Louis simply added fuel to the already-existing fire regarding the possibilities of a potential New Age Outlaws and/or Sean Waltman TV return.
On June 19th, 2012, Sean Waltman tweeted the following (@TheRealXPac): "For the record I have not been approached about the 1000th Raw. Maybe you should ask them."
When asked today on whether or not he's been contacted about appearing on Raw July 23rd since tweeting that comment, Waltman told me, "I guess not, according to your sources".
One source told me that Waltman was recently asked to leave Full Sail University -- the new host of WWE's NXT tapings - when he showed up uninvited and began giving unsolicited advice to the young stars in attendance.
Yet, Waltman said there has always been a "guest list" made for those tapings, and this particular time, he simply wasn't on the list. Rather than wait around for it to get situated, Waltman left without entering the building. As far as "browbeating the talent" goes, Waltman vehemently denied the allegation.
"That's bullsh*t," Waltman responded, "wrestlers come to me and ask that I help them; I don't go to them."
Waltman also said that he was on the guest list the previous taping and attended the entire event with no problem. Plus, he's frequented Florida Championship Wrestling numerous times in the past year or more without any problems as a result.
Waltman also added to me that he tweeted about getting locked out of his room "this" year in Miami the very next day, but the incident where he was naked and this one are two entirely separate events.
Regardless, nothing surprises me in pro wrestling anymore.
