Former Writer Rips WWE Over Randy Savage Tribute Video



Former WWE creative writer Chris DeJoseph (a/k/a Big Dick Johnson), who worked alongside Vince McMahon from 2005 through 2010, ripped his former employer over last night’s Randy Savage tribute video on Raw. He feels it’s hypocritical that WWE would sing the Macho Man’s praises after he had been ostracized from the organization during the final years of his life.

Pointing the finger of blame to Vince McMahon, DeJoseph wrote on Twitter, “Vince is steaming watching this Macho Man package.

“Only in death Macho Man was allowed back on WWE TV. Such a shame. Such hypocrisy makes me sick.”

He continued, “I was always told never to mention the name Macho Man EVER!”

DeJoseph then recalls pitching Savage for a storyline years ago and being told to never mention his name again.

“We pitched Macho Man and then we were told never to mention his name again because it was “personal,” he wrote.

Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer reported years ago that whenever someone on the writing staff pitched an idea to McMahon about bringing Savage back to WWE, he would immediately get angry and shoot the idea down flat. One day, however, head SmackDown writer Michael Hayes pitched an angle about Savage. Instead of giving his usual angry, expletive-laden response, McMahon peered off into the distance, collected his thoughts and said, “I do not want to do business with that man.”
