Former WWE lead writer Alex Greenfield was recently interviewed by John Pollock on Thursday. He revealed some interesting insight into the creative process during his time with WWE from 2005-06. One of the the more bizarre revelations was how Vince McMahon wanted to literally censor Christian's face with a blue a dot because he couldn't stand it!
"Right before I started, there was a big show, I think it might have been in Toronto. Christian was just so completely over, and everybody thought he was going to get a push at, I think it was the World Heavyweight Championship at that point. We were on the plane one time shortly after I started, and Vince was just like “God damn, I just don’t like his face. His face really bothers me.” I was like, “He’s ugly, Vince?” “No, it’s not that he’s ugly, it’s just, I don’t know, it’s ratty! You know what we should do? That Kennedy gimmick.” And we’re all like, “What?” Some see-on of the Kennedy fortune I guess got arrested for rape in the 1990s at some point. When the woman who was accusing him was on the stand, all of the networks put a blue dot over her face. Vince was like, “God damn, you know what we should do? We should put a blue dot over his face whenever he comes out.” It was the flight to Sheffield, England, also the flight where the Spirit Squad idea was invented. This was a whole flight of bad ideas."
Greenfield also discusses a backstage argument between Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels in 2005 and build for SummerSlam this year.
