Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes tweeted the following, asking WWE to cut ties with both TMZ and ESPN:
Cut ties w/TMZ-they ran my Mother’s 911 call
Cut ties w/ESPN-they insulted a child
Have balls. “‘Mainstream” ain’t always worth it.

The reason Cody is angry with TMZ is due to the fact that they were the ones who leaked the audio of the 911 call made when Dusty Rhodes fell ill before being hospitalized and then passing away last year.The ESPN reference involves the incident from Wednesday where ESPN Radio host Amin Elhassan upset fans by criticizing a video of Kevin Owens’ son reacting to his dad’s WWE Universal Title win on Monday’s WWE RAW broadcast.
