Bill DeMott feels the wrath of the power of social media

Today, Bill DeMott, the now former WWE head trainer at the Performance Center, felt the wrath and power of social media. After the two letters from 2013 leaked on Reddit, his name took Twitter by storm and his stories, all of them showing fear and abuse, didn’t went unnoticed this time.

Some of his former students voiced their opinion on Twitter again yesterday and today. “Speaking out was not easy but silence makes losers of us all. Stand up against injustice @WWE #BeAStar and #firebilldemott,” Judas Draven wrote yesterday.

Terra Calaway, a female wrestler who was apparently present at one of the infamous attacks, wrote a long rant on Twitter and ended with, “In wrestling, in life, anywhere… Bullies are not to be tolerated in any form.”

Joey Ryan, another independent wrestler wrote, “It’s important to understand that nobody cost Bill DeMott his position other than himself. Intolerance & discrimination are unacceptable.”

Current TNA wrestler Ethan Carter took a swipe at Chris Jericho yesterday after Chris Jericho defended DeMott in a message of his own. His message was deleted afterward, probably realizing it wasn’t smart to talk about it. Carter, who spent several years under a WWE developmental deal, wrote, “I love/sacrificed for pro wrestling. A Hart can stretch me any day. A know nothing dipshit slapping me when I’m concussed is different.”

Kevin Matthews was one of the men who took charge in trying to get DeMott fired chimed in saying, “If @WWE fired him it would be them admitting all this was true (which they already knew). There was no other option then force him to quit.”

Former WWE wrestler and big friend of CM Punk, Colt Cabana, sent his congratulations. “Congrats to so many. Finally one for the good guys.”
