Bill Pritchard

Michael ColeWWE announcer Michael Cole recently submitted an article to fellow announcer John 'JBL' Layfield's website, The Layfield Report. Cole addressed the ongoing Manti T'eo story, his thoughts on a past Twitter namecalling incident and other topics. You can read some excerpts of the article below:

His thoughts on insulting a fellow colleague on Twitter:
"I will not be a hypocrite here, it's not in my nature. So I am naming myself, Michael Cole, as the original social media DUMBASS. A few years ago I called a friend and colleague a name on twitter that was meant in jest. It was a horrible mistake because the word I used was extremely hurtful to an entire group of people. It was embarrassing and humiliating because based on that one word the entire world thought I was something that I wasn't. It took a heartfelt apology and years of hard work to attempt to repair the damage."

His thoughts on the Manti T'eo 'fake girlfriend' scandal:
"How about this idiot who nearly ruined Manti T'eo's life and reputation and that of his family's? DUMBASS! What would prompt anyone to engage in the art of "cat fishing"? Is your life that bad off that you need this type of attention? Does it make you feel powerful to tug at someone's heart strings, play with their emotions, and in the end ruin them? Are you so insecure with yourself, your life, your body, your own pitiful miserable existence that you need to engage in this? Get a life, loser."
