Reynolds told TMZ.com, "For him to smoke in front of [children] is irresponsible. At best, it's thoughtless, and at worst, if he calculated appealing to kids by posing as a bad-boy outlaw, it's evil."
In response, WWE issued the following statement to TMZ.com:
"The negative effect smoking has on oneâ€™s health and physical performance was a part of a storyline on last nightâ€™s Monday Night Raw. Negative depictions of tobacco use on television are not unusual and can be seen on other TV-PG shows."
