Keith Olbermann Ripps JBL, New Backlash PPV Match, Michael Hayes Suspended

henry38ks.jpgMSNBC’s Keith Olbermann has named former WWE champion John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield as the ‘Worst Person of the Week’ during his television show, ripping on Layfield for promoting the Mamajuna Energy drink, which Olbermann
calls “marketing hocus pocus and a bogus promise.” The drink, according to Layfield gives additional sexual endurance for men and many have questioned that statement since JBL started to promote the drink. Olbermann adds
Layfield’s co-workers at Fox Business Channel calling them “snake-oil salesman.” JBL didn’t like the bashing and proceeded to write a column on WWE.COM doing the exact same thing however in writing rather than on
television. Oh, we forgot to mention, Layfield worked at MSNBC till 2004 but got fired for doing the Nazi walk and salute during a WWE live event in Germany which was caught on tape and made it on YouTube. (Thanks to Colin Vassallo source: gerwick.net)
Backlash will feature a 12 Diva tap match involving WWE Women’s Champ Mickie James, Maria, Ashley Massaro, Michelle McCool, Cherry and Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix, Melina, Jillian Hall, Layla Victoria, and Natalya Neidhart.
Sources are reporting that the WWE had a directive several months ago to get more African American faces on WWE television, citing a major downturn in African-American viewership since 2006. This seems to explain why Cryme Tyme came back so suddenly.
Rumors are circulating that Michael Hayes (smackdown head writer) has been suspended by the WWE for 60 days after using a derogatory term when speaking with WWE Superstar Mark Henry. According to the source, henry took offense and reported it.
