During last Friday's WWE Draft on SmackDown, the company had NFL/celebrity segments to discuss the draft to make the product look more realistic.
The only issue with these segments is that they didn't translate well and it was clear those involved had little knowledge of the WWE product.
A wrestler who wanted to remain anonymous told WrestlingNews.co:
"[WWE] can’t help themselves. It always makes me cringe when you see them trying so hard to show everyone how mainstream they are. It actually makes the company look worse because it is so obvious to the people watching at home that the NFL guys being asked to talk about WWE don’t know anything about current wrestling. We’ll never shake off the stigma with mainstream media if Vince keeps scripting silly stuff on the shows."
You can watch the segments being referred to below.
