While talking about the abilities of Adrian Neville, JBL stated that Owen Hart was a high flying but not anything like this. Innocently, Booker T added to that by stating that Hart did not defy gravity, which is a term used frequently for Neville. That drew the ire of fans, who immediate took to social media to bash Booker, who ended up issuing an apology. WWE decided to take it a step further by removing the comments on the replay of Monday Night Raw.

During an interview this week, Jim Ross gave fans a little bit of a nugget. He revealed that there is a good amount of resentment towards him from the current group of broadcasters in WWE. Majority of that is not his fault, as guys like Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, JBL and Booker T have grown tired of hearing fans complaining about their work on social media and demanding that Ross be brought back into the company and give his old job back.

During the match between Ryback and Luke Harper during Monday Night Raw last night, JBL generated a bit of controversy with some comments that he made. When Harper flew over the ropes, the commentator stated that he looked like a "zombie Eddie Guerrero", which drew the ire of the internet wrestling community, who pounced him with some negative comments through social media. Guerrero still remains very popular with the fans.

In an ugly and hopefully isolated scene last night after the Royal Rumble, a couple of fans attempted to attack WWE stars as they were trying to make their way out of the arena. A fan used a souvenir steel chair to hit the car that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were riding in. Another fan set up a chair directly in front of the vehicle that Fandango was traveling in, so they could not move forward right away. He also did the same thing to JBL.
