During a recent episode of “Something To Wrestle”, Bruce Prichard discussed Amy Weber quitting the WWE over the wrestlers ribbing her over a flyer for a strip club with her picture on it. Here’s what he had to say:
To be clear, I adored Amy Weber, I thought she was great, she was easy to work with, and she was a lot of fun, and
I thought she was a good talent. With all that being said, everything that you said happened, that all happened. It was a rib, it was busting chops, which in this business if you don’t bust chops, you’re going to go crazy, and if you can’t handle getting your chops busted, you’re going to go crazy. And it was innocent, and it was fun, and it was ribbing. I don’t think that anybody in their right mind believed that Amy actually ever worked for this club or had done anything, because you look at the picture, I saw it, it was a business card, it had the picture on one side and the club address and everything on the back side. I heard first hand from the people that got it. I was there, I witnessed the entire thing, and it was, ‘Hey, this is where I’m going tonight, anybody ever see this?’ And when they were holding the card, they were looking at the business side of the card with the information on it so that Amy could see her picture on the other side, and Amy took it and she goes, ‘Hey, wait a minute, that’s my picture,’ and they’re like, ‘Oh my God, you work there?!’ That’s how it went. And I think the continued, ‘Oh my God, you worked at this place,’ it just probably overwhelmed her, not probably, I know it overwhelmed her, and she took it to heart, and took it very seriously, and it was one of those situations with a rib going too far.”
No, I don’t. Because I was there for the whole thing and it was just, that’s what happened, what I just explained to you.
I think everybody in their own walk of life has fun with their friends and their coworkers, and that’s all it was, that was ribbing, and nobody believed for a second that this was actually her but wanted to have a good time with her, at her expense.
