Seth Rollins had naked pictures posted of him & Zahra on his social media and still had a WWE title run. I don't think a stupid tweet will hurt them too much, especially if they say "we were just being heels online".

But the Rollins thing was way worse. That got a ton of negative media attention towards WWE, all this has done has got some fans & wrestlers annoyed. If you don't follow the guy you won't know this tweet even happened. I fully agree with you that it was a stupid move and he shouldn't have done but I'm just saying guys have done way worse and have been fine. I also didn't really seem them getting called up right now, the last thing the main roster needs is another tag team to just get lost in the shuffle.
To me it just comes across as someone sending out a tweet in character, some vets taking it the wrong way, the guy realising and apologising. No harm, no foul. Might get a bit of heat for it backstage but can't see it being a career-ender.
It's just the typical 'old guys feeling disrespected by young guys' spiel. Dawson likely didn't mean anything by it, he was just playing his character. It's like that JTG story where he was being interviewed and accidentally said the words 'loyalty' and 'respect' next to each other without realising. Cena got wind of it and told him he needed to be taught a lesson about respecting other people's gimmicks and stopped some merch of his coming out. Over-sensitive prima donnas flexing their oiled muscles over molehills.

Veterans think new guys are overexposing the business. Veterans become sensitive, delicate flowers when a heel doesn't play fanboy on Twitter. Not saying it was a smart tweet, but let's all take a deep breath and relax.
Also, isn't Bubba the guy who didn't want to do charity and promotional appearances when he first came to WWE because he was a heel? But now it's a sin to stay in character if it means being "disrespectful" to the Ascension and Breezango?
I'd rather read the political threads...

The Rollins thing still got some press which is way more than what this got. That probably had more chance of gaining a ton of heat, where as this probably pissed off some and it'd be forgotten in a couple of days.
