Former WWE Star JTG Speaks Out on ‘Racist’ Hall of Fame Legend
Former WWE star JTG, who was one half of the tag team Cryme Tyme with Shad Gaspard, has written a second book titled Damn! Why Did I Write This Book, Too?. JTG appeared on the Pancakes and Powerslams Show to promote the book, and revealed a surprising quote from a WWE Hall of Famer. Heads up now: although JTG doesn’t name names in the article, he does leave clues to the superstar’s identity.
“Hey you. Mr. Cryme Tyme. I want to talk you,” the quote from the Hall of Famer started out. “You and your partner are a mockery to my business. I helped build this business with my own two hands. If it was up to me, you all wouldn’t be here. We should have never accepted your kind in the business to begin with. I can’t wait to get every last one of you out. You’re a mockery! You hear me? A damn mockery!”
JTG would go on to explain the quote:
“That quote was said by someone who was definitely under the influence. He was with his wife, was definitely under the influence, by the bar. Me being 21 or 22 [at the time], hearing him say that, and I so much respect for him in this business, this guy is a Hall of Famer, a legend, he definitely was a pioneer in the wrestling industry and definitely took it to the next level. But, when he said it, because of my respect for him and not being too much enlightened and having the knowledge of racism, or even being in total denial. At the time, I was definitely in denial. When he said that statement that he made, I thought that he was talking about rookies. Guys who were coming from OVW. That’s how I took it as, and that’s how I wanted to take it as because I didn’t want to think that this guy was a racist, I had so much respect for him. It wasn’t until the second time where he pretty much showed his cards and, at the bar again with his wife. I was like, wow, yeah, this guy confirmed to me that he is a racist, and I could not be in denial anymore.”
JTG would go on to add that this Hall of Famer also has a distinctive catchphrase. On the one hand, I think it’s kind of crazy to put that out there and then not name names. On the other hand, not naming names allows him to avoid getting sued. So I get it, for the most part. And yet, despite the clues, I’m not entirely sure who JTG is talking about, since this would have been around ten years ago.
