WWE NXT star Jordan Myles has continued to lash out at WWE in the wake of attacking the company for an approved but removed t-shirt, that Myles' stated had "racist intentions."   Here is Myles' tweet with the shirt design in question, for those who missed it:

WWE issued the following statement regarding the shirt last night:

"Albert Hardie Jr. (aka Jordan Myles) approved this t-shirt for sale. As always, we work collaboratively with all of our performers to develop logos and merchandise designs and get their input and approval before proceeding. This was the same process with Albert, and we responded swiftly once he later requested that the logo/t-shirt be redesigned. No t-shirts were sold.”

Myles responded this morning with a tweet that has since been pulled, acknowledging he approved the design but did so when he saw it with a grey background.  Once he saw it on a black background, he felt it was inappropriate and rescinded his approval.   Myles also posted a screenshot of an email from a WWE t-shirt designer, Baker Landon, noting that Triple H loved the logo for Myles' on screen character but wanted the letters to be more "teethy."  Miles had been portraying a smiling babyface on his NXT TV appearances with announcer Mauro Ranallo declaring he had "smiles for miles."

Myles later claimed  Landon (who were are told has only been with WWE a few months), lied to him, tweeting:

It should be noted the Myles t-shirt design was part of a large grouping of dozens of shirt designed churned out at the same time as the confirmation of the NXT on USA Network deal came together quickly, so shirts for pretty much every personality were rushed to market.  That doesn't excuse the nature of the shirt at all, but would at least partially explain why there wasn't a longer process to create and release the shirt for sale publicly before being pulled - WWE was rushing to get shirts, some of which were criticized by fans for poor designs, for every talent on sale.  As noted above, WWE has stated none of the Myles shirts were ever sold.

Myles, who has been told has not been at the WWE Performance Center in recent weeks, continued to tear at WWE today with the following tweet:

Myles, 31, signed a WWE NXT deal in February 2019 following runs in Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling.  He last performed for the company at a Melbourne, Florida live event on 9/21, teaming with Keith Lee against the Outliers.   It remains to be seen whether he ever performs for the company again.
