Scorpio Sky Says He's "Laughin' Straight To The Bank"; What You Didn't See On WWE Raw

- Scorpio Sky wrote the following on Twitter after portraying Harold in the anger management class segments on this week's WWE Raw:


- After this week's WWE Raw went off the air, John Cena beat Big Show in a dark match main event.

  • Fernando

    Well, he has probably earned in one night more than working indy events in a year LOL.

  • Stephen

    Any news on him signing a contract? I heard he was having a try-out with WWE not to long ago,

  • Ken

    Ah, but did he get WWE Upper Management's permission to release that Tweet?
    Or has he just committed the cardinal sin of taking part in an unauthorised communication to the WWE Universe/Twitterverse? He is part of the Universe now, after all. He's Harold the anger management class guy.

    He might be laughing straight to the bank this one time, but he may well just have blown all future trips to the bank, at least any trips the WWE might have sent him on.

    Don't laugh. The way thngs work backstage these days this scenario is a very real possibility!

    • Exactly what i was thinking. If i were him, i wouldve just thanked wwe for the opportunity and quietly enjoyed the money. No need to be arrogant.

      He didn't mean it like that. He was laughing because of the skit that he was in being hilarious; and he kept laughing about it until he cashed the check. Then he went on youtube and watched the compilation WWE put together on the youtube channel and laughed some more.

      That's the problem with words on a screen sometimes… You can't always correctly replicate the emotion. I'm pretty sure he wasn't bashing anybody. Most likely he was overjoyed to work with DB & Kane. He was seriously about to crack up in the segment.

        "Laughing all the way to the bank" is a timeless phrase within the English language that means the speaker/typer effectively feels he's getting paid a heck of a lot of money for easy work at the expense of the person he's working for, i.e. that he's being paid too much and the WWE is a fool for paying him to do so much.

        The phrase he chose to use carries its own meaning which is entirely unconnected to anything he may or may not have meant. That IS the problem with words on screen sometimes, especially if one doesn't know the meaning of the words or phrases used which, and I mean no disrespect by this, is very common within American English.

        Case in point, the phrase I hear a lot of Americans use, "What comes around goes around," which is usually intended to indicate that your negative actions towards others come back to haunt you, except the Americanised phrase has switched the logic of cause and effect around.
        It should be "What goes around comes around", as in what you send around comes back to you, meaning if you treat people s**t they'll treat you s**t, but as written implies that people treat you s**t so you can treat them s**t.

        To compare, take the phrase "You reap what you sow", which essentially has the same metaphorical meaning, but where the logic of cause and effect is completely clear and irreversible
        I'm sure the guy meant no insult, but if the WWE were being extremely pedantic, WHICH WE KNOW THEY ARE, they could easily find it insulting.

        You're welcome.

          I have to agree and disagree. "Laughing to the bank" means just what it means literally. It's the nuance in the pitch of voice that takes it to the proverbial "fork in the road" where the other path is sarcasm. Like I said in my other comment, if you look real closely you can see him almost burst out laughing! He was far, far away from bashing WWE for that. They pay actors all of the time for skits. It really is easy money there in that aspect; I'll give you that.

          You don't have to get paid a lot of money to "laugh all the way to the bank". I could have somebody write me a check for $1 and laugh all the way to the bank thinking "Yes, I'm really about to cash this $1 check, lol". Thing is: in this day and age of the internet, everything come off as sarcastic. Wannabe trolls who have killed that artform have made it this way. Trolls used to be the well respected people of an online community, now they're just the biggest ****heads on the internet. Sorry if I started rambling, lol.

    I thought the whole anger management bit was very funny. It was over the top clichéd but genuinely entertaining.
