Other wrestlers added that if you leave during a show without getting proper approvals, it is likely to lead to the company burying you throughout the show, which partially explains why WWE was feeding lines to the commentators and released a statement soon after the incident played out.

— The report noted that the general consensus though is that being unhappy with creative is acceptable, walking out is fine, but leaving during the show is not. Others understood the creative frustration but didn’t find it worthy of walking out. And still, even others felt that “someone needed to do something like this to make a stand.”
