Yeah but at that time a dude didn't kill his own family making WWE gunshy about anything even remotely controversial to the point of censoring themselves and forcing guys to follow the script generally or pay the price. They gave Danielson a break because he choked Justin Roberts with a tie for maybe 10 seconds on camera. Zack Ryder (who I can't stand) was getting himself over but because it wasn't because of WWE they had to notice it and then have slowly killed it.
