WWE has had a tough year full of criticisms, poor financial reports and plenty of controversy. Chairman Vince McMahon has tried his best to take his wrestling entertainment company to the next level of world domination, but in the process WWE’s product has been found wanting.
The world of wrestling entertainment never takes a breather and continues to churn out programming for the millions of WWE fans across the globe.
On Sunday WWE’s latest pay-per-view instalment, Night of Champions, took center stage. What unfolded and the quality of the product on Sunday night seems to have polarized opinion, and wrestling rival, TNA, took full advantage with this clever shot.
“While we like the #iPhone6, @SamsungMobileUS is also great. Angry with #WWENOC? You have options too. #ImpactOnSpike Wednesdays at 9/8c,” TNA Wrestling tweeted on Sunday.
Not the first time
This is not the first time that TNA have tried to utilize an awkward situation for WWE to their advantage. This summer Alberto Del Rio was fired from WWE after he slapped an employee of the company. It is understood though that Del Rio was racially abused and that is why he responded to the employee, Cody Barbierri, in such a way.
WWE put a non-compete clause into his release from the company, but Del Rio eventually managed to get the clause taken out of his release agreement.
He has since began wrestling in Mexico’s AAA, but that wasn’t before TNA tried to sign him up. WWE's key rival reached out to the Mexican wrestler, according to reports, but Del Rio is understood to have declined their offer.
