World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. has confirmed that the video produced by Tommy Robinson portraying him fighting off multiple attackers was not convincing enough to merit a place on their roster.
Executives at the entertainment giant were unimpressed by the video, which was posted to his YouTube channel, branding it ‘far too fake’.
“While we are grateful for the time and effort Mr Yaxley-Lennon put into his application, we will not be making an offer for his character ‘Tommy Robinson’ to join the WWE family,” a statement from the company said.
“We felt that the fight scene he submitted was essentially too artificial looking and did not meet the high standard for credibility that we uphold here at WWE.
“The fight itself was badly choreographed and lacked any authentic-looking violence, the dialogue was corny, and the editing can only be described as amateurish.
“We have also researched the history of his character, and although we are always on the lookout for new villains the crowd can love to hate, there is an important distinction to be made between being a theatrical bad guy and just being an asshole.
“We wish him all the best in his career as a YouTuber.”
Yaxley-Lennon remained defiant in the face of the rejection, claiming: “They have not seen the last of Tommy Robinson.
“You can clearly see in the video that I fought off, like, ten guys single-handed, and everyone was cheering me and saying how great I am.
“When The Rock does it at Royal Rumble, everyone thinks he’s a hero, but when I do it in McDonald’s car park, apparently I’m just a racist muppet.
“You’ll see me in the ring soon enough, mark my words!”
