LaVar Ball left his impression on the WWE Universe after his family's completely insane appearance on Monday Night's Raw. The Big Baller Brand were escorted out of the ring after their involvement on Miz TV, but according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE originally had bigger plans for the group.
The Ball Family was supposed to remain at ringside and be involved in the six-man tag which followed their Miz TV segment, but the plan was scrapped after 15 year old LaMelo Ball dropped three or four N Words into a live microphone.
Vince McMahon and WWE officials were reportedly furious with the younger Ball going off script during the segment and the WWE released a statement separating themselves from the incident one day later.
WWE star, Curtis Axel, who joined The Miz after the bit came crashing to an end, joined Minneapolis' 93X Half-Assed Morning Show this morning to rip the Ball family's performance.
"They don't need to be on TV. Get them off. It was embarrassing. Looking at that from my perspective, it was funny backstage looking at it, but that's not something that... you know, this is my opinion. The kids watch this show. It's a kid's program, we took it down to PG-13 and made everything kid-friendly, right? And for someone to come on there and grab the microphone and go off and do something outlandish like this and you were told... I guarantee they were told not to do it - it's embarrassing.
And yeah, I watching it backstage and I was embarrassed. Growing up in the family business like this and seeing some guy... the whole family to me. Granted, you know the kid's gonna be a superstar or whatever but the dad and the other guy, they do this on a program where my family's busted their ass - it embarrasses me and it pisses me off. It sucks."
"They went off on their own and did whatever they did to hype themselves up, so I was disgusted with the whole thing"
One WWE star who hopes Vince gets LaVar back on the show as soon as possible is David Otunga. In a recent interview with TMZ, Otunga spoke about how much he enjoyed the segment.
"I'll say this. I found that to be the most entertaining segment of the show." "That dude is a character." "I like him exactly the way he was. That dude is out there. That makes me want to tune in because I don't know if he knows what's going on ... or if he's going in business for himself."0comments
"I loved it. I hope they have him back and I want to come do a segment with him. Come on! Vince, please do it! Let me do this one. I'll come and do this one for you and for the rest of the world."
While it seems unlikely for Vince to bring the entire family back to the WWE, you can bet he'll keep LaVar's number handy as long as he's culturally relevant.
