No official timetable has been set for Dijakovic’s return. Hopefully when he returns he will be able to continue his feud with Velveteen Dream.
Lars Sullivan In Trouble Due To Old Racist & Misogynistic Posts
Old posts by Lars Sullivan have been given new life due to a popular reddit thread. The posts, from a bodybuilding forum, include many racist, misogynistic, sexist, and generally harmful comments. These also include comments on WWE stars like R-Truth and Kofi Kingston, Alberto Del Rio, and more. WWE and Sullivan have not commented on these as of yet.
WWE superstar Big E did comment on twitter when a user tweeted the reddit link to him.
Many are aware. If true, he has to bear the albatross of being a bigot & working in a company that is now filled with minorities.
