Brian Myers Said WWE Told Him And Matt Cardona Their Podcast Content Wasn8217t Up To WWE Network Standards

In an interview with Fightful, Brian Myers said that WWE told him and Matt Cardona that their content for the Major Pod Network wasn’t up to the standards of the WWE Network. Here are highlights:

On why their Youtube series Figure It Out didn’t get added to the WWE Network: “Theres a lot to that question,” Myers said. “One, Figure It Out was completely Matt and I and a guy that works with WWE.com. It was never financed by WWE. We never got a paycheck from it. We were legit spending our own money on all those episodes. Not reimbursed. Absolutely nothing. No hotels. We didnt get a rental car. Nothing. Waking up early, shooting stuff on our own, hes editing on his own and putting it up on the YouTube. We pushed that. We said, Hey, this is great. Check it out. We got all the way to somebodyI couldnt even remember his namehe was like the president of the Network at the time, we wrote him an e-mail and said, Hey, weve been doing this. Take a look at it. They wrote back saying, This is not up to Network standards. Blah, blah. It could never be added to the Network. Blah, blah, blah. Couple of weeks later its on the Network without anyone telling us or anything or saying a word to us. Lot of weird things like that. Nobody cared.”

On their podcast: “We literally had the idea for the podcast, went to WWE and said, This is the UpUpDownDown of figures and that makes this company so much money. Its the same exact thing. Literally a lateral movement, if you will, to make more money for everybody. For whatever reasonand this is multiple times, this isnt one talk, this is several times we tried thisit went on deaf ears again. To the point where someone said, Dont mention it again. So, were like, Okay. Well do it on our own.”

On not getting hired for WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures: “For whatever reason, they just didnt I dont know. I dont have the answers to any of this. I could also tell you this, I dont know if Ive ever said this publicly, one of the last things I did for WWE was shoot the sizzle reel for that. I went up towhich is actually just cool as hell for me as a fan boyI went up to the warehouse and got to dig through all that cool shit. So, I have pictures of me holding the Smoking Skull belt or me wearing Jeff Jarretts light up cowboy hat on my phone and stuff. I spent the day there and shot the sizzle reel stuff, like, Hey, what happens when WWEs treasures are found, and thats what came of it. They kinda knew what was going on, but I dont know. Its all, to me, a blessing in disguise because whatever went down with WWE, and I dont know, Im not there any more, that third party stuff and all that, something would have gave, and I dont think in a good way. I think something bad would have happened where we would have been asked to sign it over or asked to give it up and none of that would have happened if we were there. I think we really avoided a ugly situation,” Myers told us. “The money aside, which I understand the money cant be ignored cause some people make big money doing this, but how can they have control of peoples hobbies. Thats really weird to me, man. Thats crossing a line, I think.”
