Last week, multiple wrestling “news” sites reported that the WWE is considering legal action on former WWE Superstar Brad Maddox and ProWrestlingTees.com over Maddox’s new ring name, Mad Braddox. I was skeptical, so I reached out to the WWE for confirmation.
I was told by a representative that there is absolutely no truth to these reports.
Wrestling journalism is at an extreme low-point right now, much like the wrestling product is. I am not a journalist. I’m not unbiased and my blogs wouldn’t be considered professional. I’m a blogger. In this role, however, I would never report on something as a fact without confirming it, and a lot of the wrestling “journalists” out there should follow suit.
Reader loyalty and your own credibility is a lot more important than a few cheap clicks.
