Re: Edge and Lita live sex celebration thread
No. It was unique to Edge's gimmick as the Rated R superstar and Lita's above and beyond slutty heel character. What was more slimey than winning the championship, attempting to have a threesome with it, with the girlfriend you famously stole the year before from a beloved babyface instead of defending it as a champion?
It's also the PG era now and there is no point. It was funny shock value at the time and good for the wow factor, but I remember people universally slamming it as terrible when it happened and whining about how it made WWE look.
It's certainly a highlight of RAW in retrospect given the ratings and how everything panned out, but Amy Dumas also hated it and ripped the fans for it afterwards. It's forgotten now but I think the days of doing that type of stuff are over.
