But don't you wanna see wrestlers kiss Vince's ass? Or how about the two best women's wrestlers of the last 15 yrs, Trish and Lita, bark like a dog or fuck in the middle of ring respectively.

And let us never forget Triple H fucking a mannequin. I missed the good ole days. If Cena fucked a mannequin, the ratings would skyrocket. Or better yet, why not have Punk take a shit on a dead kangaroo? Its always about pushing the edge. Why not make it two dead kangaroos who were having homosexual intercourse while wearing foam middle fingers?
