WWE: Why Do People Chant ‘Delete’ During Hardy Boyz Segments?
At ‘Payback,’ the Hardy Boyz came up against Cesaro and Sheamus. (WWE.com) While watching WWE programming over the past several weeks, the audience has consistently screamed “Delete!” during portions featuring Matt and Jeff Hardy. So, what precisely is the reason behind this? What was the source of the “delete” chants? However, the plot really begins outside of WWE programming. Matt and Jeff Hardy were involved in a feud on Impact Wrestling in 2016, which concluded in a “I Quit” match in April.
After being carried out of the stadium on a stretcher, Matt was in extremely awful form to begin with.
Matt also began referring to Jeff as “Brother Nero,” referring to Jeff’s middle name, Nero, as a nickname for Jeff.
Even when this feud between the Hardys came to an end, the “delete” chants continued to be heard, and ever since the Hardys returned to the ring at WrestleMania 33, these chants have been heard during their fights.
However, there has been considerable speculation over the last month as to whether the WWE would even be permitted to employ the “Broken Matt” gimmick, given that Impact Wrestling has said that they control the rights to the character.
The Hardys were expected to revive the Broken Matt persona following Payback, but this did not happen on Monday Night Raw this week, contrary to what some fans had predicted.
WWE Twitter Account Asks Fans To Stop Doing The “WHAT” Chant
“Stone Cold”Steve Austin, future WWE Hall of Famer and future wrestling icon, found upon the world’s most convenient way to be irritating back in 2001. “What?” is a single, monosyllabic word that may be given in the middle of an adversary’s statement, and it can be used to be douchey, dismissive, and rude by everyone’s favorite heel in the game. It is that final one, some twenty years later, that is attracting the most attention. Fans, on the other hand, seized on the straightforward reaction and have been employing it ever since to express their dissatisfaction or discontent with a character or their current plot line.
- Of course, when Austin pulled the stunt, he had every intention of making a fool of himself.
- WWE executives, on the other hand, believe it is disrespectful to their talent since fans continue to use it to reject what they don’t like.
- (They have since been removed, so feel free to interpret that anyway you wish.) This was the first message, which was posted during a RAW segment in which Jerry Lawler was interviewing Rusev, and it read: “Can we put an end to the shouts of ‘WHAT?'” It is no longer the year 2001.
- The chant was directed towards @AngeloDawkins as he bid farewell to @WWENXT, then it was directed at a “Hall Of Famer” on RAW.
- “And now we’re back to RAW.” Despite the fact that the brass made their opinions known, it is unlikely that it will have much of an impact on the audience.
- When it comes to live crowds, it’s like a sea of marks and smarks, and they take pleasure in their collective trolling.
- Recently, he told Busted Open Radio, “I did it as a running heel at the time, you know, I was wearing heels at the time, and I left that message on Christian’s voicemail.” It seemed like every time I said something, I’d pause and think, ‘what?
- You’re right, aren’t you?
- Isn’t it true that I’m jabbing you?
- So that was my first attempt at putting it to good use.
- A huge part of being in WWE or in the wrestling business is that the audience wants to be involved, whether they are rooting for you or against you, applauding for you or booing you, or whatever.
As a part of the show, it provided an opportunity for them to become involved and contribute.” In the meantime, they’re still taking part and saying things like ‘Austin, why in the heck did you invent that, I wish you hadn’t done that’.” I would have never imagined it in a million years that…
“I wouldn’t have predicted…” Do you believe that the chanting are insulting to the wrestlers and their efforts? Or is it merely a harmless show of support from the crowd? Please share your opinions in the comments section!
Crowd chants take over Raw after WrestleMania
Future WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold”Steve Austin discovered the world’s most convenient method to be obnoxious in 2001 while surfing the internet. Everyone’s favorite heel has the ability to be douchey, dismissive, and contemptuous with a single, monosyllabic word — “What?” – delivered in the middle of an adversary’s speech. It is that final one, some twenty years later, that is attracting the most interest. It’s true that the simple reaction was a hit with fans, who have been using it ever since to express their disinterest or dissatisfaction with a character or the current storyline.
- Without a doubt, when Austin pulled the stunt, it was done with the intent of being amusing.
- In spite of this, WWE executives believe it is disrespectful to their performers since fans continue to use it to trash what they don’t like.
- It’s your choice how you choose to interpret their deletion.) This was the first message, which was posted during a RAW segment in which Jerry Lawler was interviewing Rusev, and it read: “Can we put an end to the shouts of ‘WHAT?’?” After all, it’s not the year 2001 anymore.
- The chant was directed towards @AngeloDawkins when he bid farewell to @WWENXT, and now it’s directed at a WWE Hall of Famer on RAW.” If anything, it is an indication of disdain for the authority figure.
- Despite the fact that the brass expressed their displeasure, it is unlikely to have much of an impact on the spectators on Saturday.
- When it comes to live crowds, it’s like a sea of marks and smarks, and they take joy in their collective trolling.
- “I did it as a, you know, I was running heel at the time, and I left that message on Christian’s voicemail,” he explained to Busted Open Radio earlier this year.
Man, there’s something here, I thought after receiving a lengthy voicemail.
Isn’t that right?
Right, you realize I’m poking fun at you.
It was a novel concept for the time period.
All of a sudden, when I switched back babyface and people began grabbing onto it, man, it just developed into something where you just had to put that pause in your cadence and they would come with the ‘what’ and it just sorta conditioned ’em to do it, and they were feeding off of it.
Whether they are just immersed in the sport or listening to a promotional message, they desire engagement and participation.
I wish you hadn’t done that.” Never in a million years would I have imagined…
“I would have never imagined it would be so successful.” Does it appear to you that the chants are disrespectful of the wrestlers? Maybe it’s just a harmless gathering of people? Comment below and share your thoughts with us.
The Monday Night Raw that takes place the night following WrestleMania has become so well-known that the WWE Network broadcasted an entire “WWE24” special dedicated to the event. Because of the large number of international visitors to WrestleMania week, the significant European influence of the audience tends to give the performance a soccer-stadium atmosphere. The shouts that reverberate around the arena contribute to some of the finest (and, unfortunately, some of the worst) moments in the game, and Monday’s edition was not an exception.
- “Un-der-take-r” One of the most heartbreaking and strange scenes you’re ever likely to witness at a WWE performance occurred during the program’s opening seconds, which were captured on video.
- “Boooooo,” “Roman stinks,” “Go away,” and so on (the “Roman Reigns” category) When it comes to pure stamina, these group should be applauded for their efforts.
- During Reigns’ entrance into the arena, the yells and booing only became louder, and for 10 minutes, the fans wouldn’t allow him to speak; every time he brought the microphone to his lips, the crowd screamed loudly enough that he was forced to lower it again.
- “This is now my yard,” says the author.
- “Doo-doo-doo – Sheamus and Cesaro” is a song by Sheamus and Cesaro.
- 1 contenders for the Raw tag team championships.
- After Cesaro and then Sheamus encouraged the chants with arm movements and a post-match play-along, the chanting grew in volume and lasted late into the night, even as fans streamed out of the Amway Center in Orlando.
Even though the phrase “You Suck” was chanted loudly along with the beats of the song, the crowd has moved past any negative connotations it may have had in the past; Angle, with a big smile on his face, conducted the crowd throughout, and fans can expect more of the same in the coming weeks and months.
- (This falls under the “Broken Matt Hardy” category.) Following the pattern set by their last tenure, the chants for The Hardy Boys featured all of the traditional go-tos that accompanied them to their new home.
- Aside from the streak that still runs through his hair, Matt has maintained at least modest pieces of the “broken” persona.
- “Excellent gentlemen” Despite the fact that Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder, collectively known as The Revival, had been working together for quite some time, their debut was no less stunning for it.
- Because the audience was so acquainted with the current NXT product, it was inevitable that their well-known moniker and catchphrase would be used repeatedly during the match.
- A few of years ago, they were bombarded with “Which one’s Dawson” chants.
- Although they opted to acknowledge Samoa Joe, most likely because of the simplicity with which they could do so and the similarity of his name, this one became unexpectedly boisterous late in the night.
- sweetFans love to yell it out when the referee counts to two but doesn’t get it to three and the game is still on.
- Thus, it was appropriate that the audience responded to every two-count with a high-pitched “sweet” towards the finish of the song on this particular occasion.
- This particular point in time drew the attention of the assembled throng.
It would have been ideal if it hadn’t happened during a heated fight between Neville and Mustafa Ali, but things like this happen all the time. Whether you like them or dislike them, there’s no doubting that this group had a good time.
Twitter Reacts to Seth Rollins Loss, Crowd Chant, More WWE Extreme Rules Results
Image courtesy of WWE.com On Sunday, WWE Extreme Rules 2018 took place from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, promising major moments on the path to SummerSlam with a jam-packed schedule of contests. The complete card, which included two Kickoff matchups, was 12 matches long, the longest since WrestleMania 34, despite being two hours shorter in duration. The result was a showcase for many of the company’s top stars, including Roman Reigns vs. Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles vs. Rusev, the Extreme Rules conclusion to the feud between Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax, which included Ronda Rousey watching from ringside, and Dolph Ziggler vs.
- What came out of this program was a surprising amount of pushback, with the audience audibly dissatisfied with the decisions and competitions during the course of the evening.
- In instance, the audience appeared to have gotten their desire when Roman Reigns was not included in the main event, only for the crowd to utterly overlook the actual main event, Ziggler vs.
- Fans on Twitter had a more divided reaction to these and other decisions, as well as to the decisions themselves.
- Rollins as the winner.
- Rusev or Ziggler vs.
- Because the Intercontinental Championship had a larger storyline around it, WWE felt it was easier to go with that option.
- This group of people is…interesting.
- Because they are passionate about technical wrestling and hold it in high regard.
ExtremeRules Even though it’s difficult to tell exactly how the wrestlers were feeling with the audience being so obnoxious, the most powerful man in WWE did make a quick statement about the situation once his night was over: WWE Rollins (@WWERollins) Seth Rollins (@WWERollins) 10.9.8.7.188.8.131.52.2.1.
The Showoff and The Architect battled to a 4-4 stalemate until Ziggler was able to defend his title with some assistance from Drew McIntyre in overtime.
The action was mainly exciting, yet the contest’s conclusion left several viewers feeling disappointed in the outcome: [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@xBurn Seth Rollins vs.
- That main event was DESERVED!
- The audience was a snoozer.
- What a disappointing conclusion to this IronMan contest.
- ExtremeRules It was an unusual turn of events that marked a night of unusual programming, and it is possible that the Pittsburgh audience turned against a duo who had been generally well-liked.
- Many expected Reigns vs.
- It was a good development given that the fight was only supposed to be the main attraction since it featured The Big Dog: Rocky Marciano.
- WOWWWW – IT’S NOT THE PRIMARY EVENT AT ALL IT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING THERE.
Extremerulesheads triumphed in the face of Reigns’ recent failures to win over the crowd, but fans were not easily persuaded and were ready to toss out the contest before it even had started: Brandon Stroud may be reached at MrBrandonStroud.com.
Steve Austin shows in and hits them both with a stunner to end the match.
As the fight neared its conclusion, the two heavyweights went to battle in a brutal struggle that saw no respite.
The audience took a bit to warm up to the bout, but it eventually did.
Although it took a few minutes for the Bobby Lashley/Roman Reigns bout to get rolling, once it did, everyone in the arena was into it.
ExtremeRules There was certainly room for growth, but this match was good enough to make it feel like it wasn’t a waste of a position on the card in what has been a bad year for The Big Dog in terms of performance.
With the expectation that this would be Bliss and Jax’s final major contest, their encounter swiftly descended into an interference-heavy affair, with the two simply tossing weapons around until Mickie James intervened to level the odds.
However, while she was able to temporarily remove James, the two heels were still able to eliminate Jax, with Bliss retaining her championship.
In this very brief battle, Bliss’ lack of aggressiveness made quite a stir, as she hardly took a bump or physically wrestled the whole time: At joenegron.com, Joe Negron in the future Alexa Bliss competes in another another match in which she does not wrestle.
Unfortunately, the contest was a dud.
We demand better champions, not divas who are incapable of competing.
Some were pleased to see the former UFC star being physical once more, while others were concerned that she would become overly aggressive: Ronda is stuttering loudly at StutterLoudly.com.

While the conclusion came as a surprise, it was the immediate aftermath that sparked a commotion.

These Tone-Deaf Hip-Hop Moments Prove Rappers Can Get Hit With Serious Backlash
Several times, the Mexican soccer organization has been sanctioned by FIFA, the international regulatory body, for a homophobic slogan used by its fans during national team matches. As part of the latest punishment meted out by FIFA, the team will be required to play two of its home World Cup qualifiers in 2022 without the support of its supporters.
What is the homophobic chant?
When an opponent goalkeeper puts the ball into play on a goal kick, Mexican national team fans gather together in unison to yell a homophobic slur (“p—,” which roughly translates to “gay prostitute”) in Spanish, a tradition that is thought to have developed among fans in the early 2000s. The shout is intended to terrify both the goalkeeper and the opposition team, according to legend. When used by supporters at a sports stadium, the argument has been that the phrase has numerous cultural meanings in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries, and that it is not intended to be homophobic slur.
- The fact that it is a disparaging phrase that is insulting to the LGBT community cannot be ignored.
- “It is not the intention with which you yell or chant that is important.
- “If somebody believes that it is a discriminating conduct, then it is not something that should be brought up in a discussion.
- If anything is discriminatory, it should be avoided.” MORE:Mexican soccer authorities fear that they may face harsher penalties in the future.
The world body has made it clear that it will be cracking down on racism and homophobia in the game around the world — Hungary was fined in 2017 for a homophobic chant directed at Cristiano Ronaldo — and that the teams whose supporters engage in discriminatory behavior will bear the consequences of their actions.
What is Mexico doing about the homophobic chant?
While the Mexican soccer organization first refused to accept that the slogan was racist, they have since changed their minds and are putting all they have towards putting an end to it. The FMF has launched an anti-discrimination campaign that is specifically targeting the slogan and urged supporters to desist from using it in any capacity. Their collaboration with match organizers has resulted in public address announcements and video board messaging, which warns infringing supporters that they will be removed from the stadium if they are discovered.
Apart from that, match organizers are expected to follow a new three-step process, which was implemented by FIFA in 2019 in the event of a discriminatory occurrence.
- Step 1: Match cancellation with a warning to spectators
- Step 2: The contest is suspended, and the players are moved to the locker room. Step 3: The match is abandoned.
In the short period of time since the new restrictions were implemented, they have begun to have some effect, but in some towns and stadiums, supporters have continued to defy the new rules. It will most likely take more time for the chant to be completely eliminated, but the Mexican football federation will hope that this does not come at the expense of competitive point deductions or even expulsion from official tournaments such as the World Cup, which Mexican officials believe is a real possibility if the problem continues.
FIFA sanctions for homophobic chants
The slogan has been used by Mexican fans at club and national team games since the early 2000s, but it garnered international attention during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Despite mounting disapproval, it made a triumphant reappearance four years later at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with Mexico’s unexpected victory over Germany in the final. Since 2015, the Mexican football federation has been penalized by FIFA on a number of occasions, with the number of instances becoming impossible to keep track of.
- However, the severity of the consequences is increasing.
- The sentence included a $65,000 fine and two official home matches played behind closed doors in the following months.
- Also in connection with homophobic chanting by Mexican supporters at a friendly against Iceland in Arlington, Texas, in May 2021, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee started a second investigation against the country.
- It is also unclear whether any disciplinary punishment would be taken in response to the shouts during Mexico’s participation in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals and final in June 2021, which will be broadcast live on ESPN.
- “Fining players, playing one or two games behind closed doors — which is what we’re concerned about today, along with the fine — deducting points, losing matches, and being barred from participating in a competition or tournament are all possibilities.
- That is the current state of affairs.” The chant resurfaced during Mexico’s opening 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup group match against Trinidad and Tobago in Dallas, resulting in a stoppage in play as per protocol, as well as a stern warning from CONCACAF to fans.
There were indications that the severe FIFA punishment may have helped change fan behavior when exhibition matches played by Mexico’s senior national team on June 12, June 30 and July 3 unfolded without incident.
Chants of ‘F— Joe Biden’ rain down from NASCAR stands during interview with Talladega winner
Kim Strassel, Mene Ukueberuwa, Kyle Peterson, and Dan Henninger share their favorite and least favorite moments from the last week. NEW You may now listen to Fox News articles while you work or commute! After Brandon Brown won his maiden NASCARXfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, chants of “F- Joe Biden” poured down from the audience. When Brown was being interviewed after the race, the anti-Biden chanting began. After Brown informed a reporter that his triumph was a “dream come true,” the audience erupted in applause, expressing their discontent with the president in a loud and simultaneous manner.
” Initial postings of the video included the chant, but NASCAR eventually removed the footage from their Twitter account.
Due to low visibility, NASCAR officials decided to cancel the race with five laps remaining in the planned 113-lap event at the 2.66-mile circuit in Daytona.
Brandon Jones, a playoff driver, was beaten by Brown in the final scoring loop.
During the interview, Brown screamed something at the camera.
It has become particularly popular at college football games, where tens of thousands of fans have packed stadiums in defiance of the Biden administration’s strict coronavirus guidelines.
