I really dont know how to respond to that. First of all you cant compare movies to wrestling, so dont even bother even pretending it is
Shawn collapsing..... I dont think that should have happened. Someone injuring him? Maybe. But him just dropping to the ground? Yeah, I didnt like that. Whenever I see it, it reminds me of what happened to Fabrice Muamba. And the less said about Flair's heart attack the better
the hanging is most problematic because of the imagery. Nobody wants to see that. There is a reason they banned public executions and hangings in England as early as the time of Charles Dickens, and there is a reason they dont show it on TV or that many movies, at least not vividly. Its a dark thing, especially when someone isnt aware its a work
It went nowhere, the crowd hated it, and the company ignored it. The only purpose it served was telling Vince he'd gone too far. Little surprise the following years were all toned back from the craziness of the previous years
Why not? We fans defend wrestling when someone says that it's fake by replying "so are movies and you still watch it" so why not using this argument in this case? This is entertainment after all. You compare public executions to entertainment? dafuq?
Pro wrestling is entertainment consisting of every genre, comedy, action, drama, sex and this storyline involved elements from the horror genre, the build up to this match already revealed it.
One question. If this segment was a scene in a Wes Craven or Tarantino movie would people leave the theatre in disgust? I guess not so why is it different in pro wrestling? Because it looks more real? Excuse me but if this is your argument you are not different than the parents who were upset when Nexus attacked John Cena and destroyed the ring

I know. I'm actually 120 years old and was the tag team partner of Lou Thesz. You don't need to tell me how old you are because you can't prove it anyway. The only thing you proved is that you're actually a spoiled little brat because the first time someone disagrees with you you start with dabya see dabya nonsense and posted the ridiculous smiley.
tbh I don't know if I should reply to a kid like you on the internet because Chris Hansen can knock on my door at any second
