Home » WWE News » WWE Website Pulls “Biggest Turkeys” Article Following Complaints

WWE.com has pulled last week’s controversial Thanksgiving-themed slideshow article counting down the seven biggest “turkeys” to ever trot the squared circle. The page is now inaccessible.

The list was heavily scrutinized by fans and former talent alike who felt it was hurtful as well as hypocritical. Former WWE performers Vito LoGrasso (a/k/a Vito) and Nick Cvjetkovich (a/k/a Kizarny) both took to social media outlets to respond to being labeled turkeys. Vito stated the following Friday on Facebook:

“A lot of people are upset with the WWE today. They spoke of me in a negative way which put the fans in shock. How would they post something like this on a holiday?! I have a family and the kids are all upset. I thought they had an anti-bullying policy.”

LoGrasso stated in a subsequent interview that he planned to take the matter to GLAAD and TMZ, pointing out the hypocrisy in WWE bullying him when they have an anti-bullying campaign in place.

Cvjetkovich shared similar sentiments regarding his former employer’s demeaning piece as he called it “a dick move” in a YouTube video. He added on Twitter, “So much for anti-bullying @WWE @JoeyStyles. Receiving tons of positive messages is the only thing that saved my Thanksgiving that u wrecked!”

    Notice all the people on the list all got big pushes and promos/vignettes only to leave early on when they failed, with the exception of Michael Cole unfortunately.

    The 2 greatest things to happen in kizarneys career was his 15 minutes on wwe and being called a turkey.Give me a break.No one would still remember him if it wasnt for this current flash.He is already back to being a nothing.He should post a video thanking wwe .

  • Pissed Off Fan

    Wait so what i dont understand is why was Kizarny hyped up so much but then fired right away?

  • mike

    Bunch of grown men acting like complete bitches, don’t say this don’t say that. The pussification of America continues, bunch of fucking babies, where did all the real men go. No wonder vito wore a skirt (pussy)

  • KGM Da Master

    Ok stop with the bull. We all know theres a difference in wrestling and reality. Some fight are worth fighting and WWE should have fought this issue. First, these are characters, not the actual people (who are turkeys themselves). WWE made mistakes with storylines and made a joke about some of the characters that were a disaster. If u take it personally, well then probably was a “sour puss” in the locker room. Everyone has bad
    stretchs in that form of business. Either get over it or get lost

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    You know Vito was definetly a turkey But you know who was an even bigger turkey?
    Everyone who actually went through his finishing move and had their head shoved under his dress. eeeeeewwwwwww NASTY!!!

    Repo man had a dope ass song and i marked out at the gimmick battle royal at wrestlemania a while back. And yeah wwe fucked up on that one fucking hipocrites.

  • Mae Young Is My Mom

    I know Gobbledygooker was on the list (obvious) but he really was a character so he can’t complain. Can’t remember the other never-were’s that were on the list…

  • Bill

    Someone oughta make a WWE’s Biggest Jackasses article & have it focus on Vince McMahon.

  • JD

    If these guys were still employed with the WWE, I guarantee you they wouldn’t care. Vito and Kizary’s gimmicks were a diaster. That’s not saying anything personal against the men but the characters.

  • josh

    i dont see how they were considered “turkeys” to being with, if anything WWE creative team would take that title since they failed at booking them properly along with many other WWE talents through the years

  • stockshark

    Repo man was brillant come on! To give up your communist ways and become a good ole redneck your good with me boy!

  • donners

    anyone know who else was on the list?

    technically, doesn’t that mean that there’s 5 people out there that were either just happy for the mention, or are quite happy in the knowledge that they weren’t very good?

  • ohhh u didnt no

    Repo man just stole my car!!!!

    Bnnnnnnnnnnn REPOOOOO MAAAAN

  • venom

    I guess all of the turkeys are happy about this. Vito can live his turkey days in peace.

  • Dave

    Kizarny was a turkey. 6 months of build up and promos. A win over MVP while he was jobbing to “Enhancement Talent”. And a quick elimination in a battle royal. That was about the total of his WWE career. He got less tv time than Braden Walker.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    So I guess the big dress wearing(FIRST!!!) cry baby Vito got his way. Well he’s still a barnyard buzzard.
