Michael Cole Attempts To Speak To Glenn Beck (Video)

WWE aired footage on RAW of Michael Cole visiting Glenn Beck’s radio studio in Irving, Texas earlier in the day, trying to get a comment about why he declined WWE’s invitation to appear on RAW. Cole was escorted out of the building after being told that Beck would not not speak with him. Here is video footage of what went down:

WWE issued the following statement on Michael Cole’s attempt to meet with Beck, saying that Beck “hid” from WWE cameras:

Glenn Beck declined WWE’s invitation to address our fans live on Raw® tonight and then hid from WWE reporters when approached this evening at his studios in Dallas. WWE attempted to get comment from Beck but was unable to gain building access after Beck’s representatives said he was “not in the building,” which clearly couldn’t be the case just prior to his show airing live from the same studio.

Beck referenced WWE as “stupid wrestling people” in a segment that aired on TheBlaze TV last week, criticizing a recent WWE storyline involving WWE characters World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio™, Jack Swagger™ and Zeb Colter™.

Similar to other television shows and feature films, WWE is in the entertainment business, creating fictional characters that serve as protagonists or antagonists. To create compelling and relevant content for our audience, it is important to incorporate current events into our storylines.

WWE is creating a rivalry centered on a topical subject that has varying points of view. This storyline was developed to build the Mexican American character Del Rio into a hero given WWE’s large Latino base, which represents 20 percent of our audience.

    They’re not being bullies, they’re standing up to a bully. Calling people out will result in cowards hiding.

    people can be such marks on these post. when someone says no to wwe there are always people on these who thinks they have to stick up for wwe and defend them. there is nothing to defend here, if glenn doesn’t want to take part in something he knows isn’t real then its his right, there’s nothing wrong with that. he doesn’t want to do it so they need to leave the man alone.

      He probably shouldn’t have commented on them and their product if he didn’t want any conflict…

  • ishagol

    Does this guy have any balls at all??? I don’t usually comment on stuff like that because I met many with ill feelings about WWE but seriously if you’re gonna say those things on live TV and then hide in his little studio wanting nothing to do with WWE then why say stuff like that in the first place?? What did WWE do to him is my question? I wonder what happens if he said this sort of thing 12 years ago…No integrity no honor just a troll

  • DigitalWWE

    I found this video very entertaining.

  • TheTruthWillHurtV2

    Just wondering but how did this whole thing started??? and who the hell is Glenn beck?

  • Mr_Shrimp_Vendor

    Vince should just give it a rest. Glenn Beck is obviously very anti-pro wrestling and will not have anything to do with WWE in any way, shape or form unless he plans on using them to further fuel his own ego like he did with the Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter audio clip. Besides, if WWE’s wanting to get a political media name involved with the whole Swagger and Colter gimmick, go after Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert. Least those two are entertaining and might actually play ball with WWE.

  • G.I.R.L.

    20%? Interesting.

  • fdsa

    Cole should have done a gallon smash.

  • yes

    LMAO what better person to use. Cole!

  • wesley

    figures he was hiding what a coward !!!!!!!

  • Just FYI

    This has nothing to do with cowardice. Glenn Beck obviously doesn’t care about WWE affairs. So he’s basically doing what anyone would probably do when they don’t care about something….. ignore it.
