Brodus Clay is clearly not as popular as Randy Orton, but based on a backstage report, he likely thought he was closer to that level than the “WWE Universe” actually believes.
F4WOnline.com reports that Clay was visibly upset by his poor performance in the “RAWActive” poll conducted last Monday on RAW.
Asked to select an opponent for CM Punk, 75% voted for Orton, while 13% selected Jerry Lawler and 12% selected Clay.
“A funny story is that Clay appeared to be legitimately sad that he did so poorly in the viewers choice segment deal to face Punk,” wrote F4W’s Dave Meltzer.
Booker T ribbed Clay over the reaction until he asked the SmackDown! GM to leave him alone.
