On a recent episode of Grilling Jr, co-host and AEW Commentator Jim Ross discussed allegations of racism against WWE President and Chief Operation Officer back in 2000.
Check out the highlights below.
Linda McMahon on Stu Snyder being appointed as WWE President and Chief Operating Officer:
“Stuart adds additional depth to our executive management team, he brings a unique combination of experience from both the entertainment and live events industries that we believe will be a tremendous asset to WWE Entertainment as we continue to expand both domestically and internationally.”
Jim Ross on Stu Snyder:
“He also worked at Turner Broadcasting” JR began. “Let me tell a Stu Snyder story very quickly that kind of describes who he is. If I recall correctly? He was not happy that he had a black limo driver. He was not happy that he had to ride in a black car.”
“And that came up late in the game” Jim Ross continued. “Vince was not aware that this guy had some apparent ‘alleged’ issues. So I didn’t have a lot of time for Stu Snyder. He’s one of those guys that came in fast talking like ‘here’s my resume bing bing bing.’ He’s got all these former employers in his resume. Well? There’s a reason for that. There’s a reason people change jobs a lot, because they’re not welcome anymore.”
“he [Snyder] wasn’t a great guy at all. And he came in there and again, it’s the old deal where he had very little product knowledge.”
