A storm is coming.

On Sunday NXT Superstar posted his frustrations with WWE after seeing his very first T-Shirt had racist overtones.

For those unaware, the shirt clearly has a “black face white teeth” design which is known as a racist caricature from 19th-century minstrel theater

Nineteenth-century entertainers spawned a racist caricature that endures to this day when they darkened their faces to portray black people as grinning, dancing simpletons.

WWE released this statement:

Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.

After WWE released their statement Jordan Myles exposed the truth.

He then went for the jugular

WWE is on high alert and going into damage control. The T-Shirts will not be released and the noise Myles made was heard all the way to WWE offices in Connecticut.

What is interesting is that Jordan Myles has not been seen on NXT televised programming since August, 15th 2019 in a singles match where he was pinned by NXT Champion Adam Cole.

Our main focus in this situation is two topics.

  1. How and if WWE will make this situation right?
  2. Whats becomes of Jordan Myles after this T-Shirt controversy?

WWE sources indicate to us that “they know they messed up” and “they are trying to fix this”. We hope for WWE’s case that’s the truth. Stay tuned to Slice Wrestling for the latest updates.
