Dave Scherer has weighed in on Mitchell:
As anyone who has followed my work for a while knows, I have always had zero respect for Bruce Mitchell due to the things he written, as well as personal interactions I have had with him. For instance, in the past, he referenced a female valet as “stick girl” and inferred she had an eating disorder, just because she was thin. Having known her personally, and broken bread with her many times, I know for a fact that wasn’t true but even if I didn’t, he surely didn’t know what he wrote WAS true. His words hurt that woman, and he clearly couldn’t care less. So sadly, when he wrote the hideous, horrible column that he did, I was not surprised. The fact that he would write that column while a widow was grieving loss of her husband, at Christmas no less, and then felt forced to defend herself is heinous and completely and utterly rotten. I am also not surprised that despite being taken to task by pretty much everyone in the wrestling business and online for what he wrote, he doubled down and defended it. That is just despicable and shows how self absorbed and lacking empathy he is. I was glad to see him delete his Twitter account. I am not one to say someone should be blackballed but I will say that any site that hires him is hurting their credibility. In a perfect world, we have heard the last of him. The world does not ever need to hear from him again.
Scherer is always the epitome of class, travelling the highest of roads.
