Why WWE's latest Tough Enough recruit has a lot to learn

Following the arrival of the WWE Network, WWE has seen a whole host of new programming receive a huge boost in popularity and its NXT show, Breaking Ground, is no exception.

The recently-produced programme is one which gives viewers the ability to have a behind-the-scenes look at what a struggle it is to become a WWE Superstar.

One of the stars of the show is WWE's male Tough Enough winner from 2015, Josh Bredl, who it seems has not exactly had the best start on his journey to becoming the next big thing at WWE.

Foolish decision

For any newcomer to WWE or professional wrestling in general, an awareness and respect for the journey those Superstars on the main roster have been on is the norm.

They have worked so hard, for so many years and worked increasingly difficult schedules, meaning looking up to them as a fresh, new wrestler would surely be a common tradition.

This week, however, Josh Bredl, who is currently appearing under the name Bronson Matthews, decided to take to Twitter to insult WWE's Social Outcasts group.

As What Culture have reported, Bredl's since-deleted Tweet read as follows: "Yup.. I like it.. #SocialJobbers".

Whilst the names who make up Social Outcasts - Curtis Axel, Adam Rose, Heath Slater and Bo Dallas - are not exactly the biggest at the company, they have undoubtedly earned their positions on the main roster and do not deserve to receive criticism like that.

This type of remark is one which a member of the WWE Universe may be inclined to make but for someone who won a WWE reality television show and thus received his spot as a result, he is certainly in no position to do so.

Immediate backlash

As Wrestling Inc reported, Bredl's Tweet resulted in a number of WWE Superstars including Kevin Owens and Stardust taking to the social media site to air their own views.

The former responded with:

Owens then blocked Bradl, which is unsurprising given that Owens is certainly not a man to mess with on social media.

As for Bradl himself, he already did not have a huge amount of support as the contract he received by winning Tough Enough was worth a lot more than what many of the NXT developmental recruits earn.

In addition, he has not even made his television debut under Bronson Matthews yet, so has already managed to put himself in WWE's bad books without fully getting started.

This is yet another example with regard to the company and its talent as to why social media, whether it has a delete button or not, is not the place to air their views about others who work under WWE.
