Courtesy of a tweet from David Bixenspan, we have a little more insight regarding WWE’s mindset when fining Lars Sullivan $100,000.
David said that he reached out to WWE for comment as to what the actual nature of the fine was, the egregious comments made by Sullivan several years ago on the Internet, or if it was for Sullivan not disclosing these comments prior to inking the deal with WWE.
WWE simply answered with the broad strokes statement of “all of the above”:
I reached out to WWE to try to get clarification on the nature of Lars Sullivan’s $100,000 fine. When I asked if Lars is "being fined for the posts or not disclosing them when he signed,” a WWE spokesman told me that the fine was "For the broad issue covering all of the above."
