Triple H’s support of Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has ‘turned off’ ESPN journalist Michelle Beadle from being a WWE following a tweet Triple H sent out to Mayweather after his win against Manny Pacquiao.
“I’ve loved @WWE for a long time. But @TripleH and his love for a serial abuser is too much. I’m turning in my fan card. #WasFunWhileItLasted,” Beadle wrote on Twitter.
Beadle was angry that her press credentials for the fight were pulled by Mayweather’s camp but Kelly Swanson, a spokeswoman for Mayweather Promotions, said that Beadle still had her credentials after HBO reinstated them after a ‘miscommunication.’ Beadle left the city before HBO re-approved them, thus missing the event.
When a fan asked Beadle on Twitter if this is all about the credentials, Beadle responded, “No. They’ve given me great seats to amazing events over the years. I’m grateful. But I’m also done now.“
The Triple H tweet in question read, “@FloydMayweather WOW….. Just WOW. Masterful !!!!! #TMT #TBE #48and0 Congratulations.”
Triple H and Mayweather are friends and the former WWE champion has walked out to the ring with Mayweather before. Besides, Mayweather is a friend of the WWE and has been part of WrestleMania 24 in one of the biggest matches on the card against the Big Show.
Beadle is a long-time WWE fan and just recently hosted the interview with Brock Lesnar on ESPN where Lesnar announced that he’s retiring from MMA for good and that he has signed a new deal with WWE.
