More Information and a Correction on the Michael Hayes & Rosa Mendes Story

– We incorrectly noted before that former WWE writer Court Bauer said on the Bauer & Pollock Podcast that Michael Hayes was suspended by WWE after offering Rosa Mendes alcoholic beverages. Bauer actually said that Hayes was suspended for being seen drinking with Rosa. Here’s what Bauer said, courtesy of Raj Giri:

“He was hanging and having a few drinks with Rosa Mendes – many are familiar with her recent problems with drinking. WWE didn’t feel it was a good look, and a lot of people tipped off the front office about this event. I don’t know where it was; I’m sure it was at a hotel after a TV or something. They had been bringing her for a few weeks to TV but not using her, I think just to make sure that things were good, she was in a good place, it was a good environment for her and should could handle it.”

“That was the right move by the office, that was the right move to do. Very sensitive to the subject, but also just seeing if it was time to get back and get her involved. If someone has a problem, you probably shouldn’t be pouring a few back with them. I think that’s probably not in their best interests. As a person that’s intricately involved with talent and the inner office and knows this, that’s really inexcusable. Because of this lapse in judgment, he was told he’d be basically suspended from school for a few weeks. He’s not going anywhere; he’s still in the company. He’s still very much involved, so it’s not the end of Michael Hayes.”

    Seems like they are talking out of both sides of their face all the time

  • I see, but it was perfectly OK for WWE to douse Scott Hall with beer, in the ring, knowing full well his problems with alcohol and substance abuse. Seems like they are talking out of both sides of their face.

    I’m not shocked they made a mistake, and failed to gather all the correct details before rushing to post what they thought was scandalous headline news. I am however almost dumbfounded at the fact that they actually corrected there mistake. Still its a mistake that nvr should have been made considering the full details of the story were right there in the podcast, and obtaining them would have been rather effortless. Very sloppy and lazy reporting on W-E part.
