A pity too. I was just beginning to like the gimmick.
If the proof is what you really want, then here it is. Personally I knew that CNBC would have punished Bradshaw way before Vince McMahon would have, but I didn't suspect that they would go this far. It wasn't that big of a deal to me (Eddie Guerrero did something like that, although at a lower scale than Bradshaw) but I guess that it does strike a nerve with other viewers. In any case, this isn't doing any favors for Smackdown.
Even more of a pity, because Bradshaw's not really that bad backstage.
