The Miz Says LaVar Ball Went Completely Off Script During WWE Appearance; Didn’t Hear Son Say N-Word (VIDEO)
Earlier this year, it was announced that the Ball family would make a guest appearance on WWE Raw, which just so happened to be in Los Angeles right after Lonzo Ball was drafted to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Their appearance started out with a bang, as LaVar did a funny looking run to the ring and failed to slide in under the ropes. The Miz, who was in that segment with them, recently explained on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast how LaVar went completely off script and how he never heard LaMelo Ball yell the n-word during the commotion.
“I walk into their dressing room to go over the script … And [LaVar] says, ‘Nah, we’re good.’ So [I think] ‘I guess we’re going to wing it.
I didn’t hear it (referring to the N-word).
There’s so much going on, and I think it was during Dean Ambrose’s music. In the ring, sometimes you can’t even hear the person that is speaking to you. I’m literally a really good lip-reader a lot of the time because there’s so much [noise].
“It was not planned at all. I was like, ‘I’m just gonna let him do his thing because guess what? People are going to be talking about it for months on end.”
In five moths since appearing on WWE, that video has been viewed almost 2 million times to date.
