Scott Dawson has backstage heat after a tweet in which he later called “stupid” that he sent out during the airing of this week’s episode of Smackdown.
Dawson tweeted the following:
We’re the hottest act in tag wrestling. You think we’re going to debut in a stupid multi-team gimmick match?!
While working his gimmick, many felt the tweet was disrespectful, especially from someone who hasn’t debuted on the main roster yet. The tweet was referencing the Tag Team Turmoil match featuring The Usos, The Hype Bros, The Vaudevillains, Breezango, The Ascension and American Alpha on Smackdown.
He later tweeted:
Admittedly my last tweet was stupid. I've worked w/ all those teams & have the utmost respect for them. Stupid tweet to try to rile fans.
Dawson, who is the partner of Dash Wilder, dropped the WWE NXT Tag Team Championship to Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa at last weekend’s TakeOver: Toronto show.
He has since removed both the controversial tweet and the apology for it.
