I'm sure Jerry was okay with it. I was entertained.

if people want to "suspend disbelief" in a classy way by watching Wrestling and enjoying the whole "choreographed" show they should go to New japan pro wrestling and the like, WWE already made their name and precedent by doing over the top wacky borderline trashy stuff, it's complete hypocrisy and idiocy to negate all of that and create a "tasteful family show that cares about sensitivity"
Except they do. Breast Cancer awareness, Military appreciation. WWE's corparate company overview:
Quote:
WWE, a publicly traded company (NYSE: WWE), is an integrated media organization and recognized leader in global entertainment. The company consists of a portfolio of businesses that create and deliver original content 52 weeks a year to a global audience. WWE is committed to family friendly entertainment on its television programming, pay-per-view, digital media and publishing platforms. WWE programming is broadcast in more than 145 countries and 30 languages and reaches more than 600 million homes worldwide. The company is headquartered in Stamford, Conn., with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore, Istanbul and Tokyo.
Yeah.

because he doesn't want to accept the fact that WWE it's not a mainstream entertainment business and he shouldn't appear to a demographic that in all honestly doesn't even care about anything regarding sports to begin with, aka, the birth of the PG era

it's the same way linda mcmahon is running for senate while her own money is being made of something as the WWE, spending 90 million of dollars why denying health care to their own workhorses, the ones that put money in her pockets to begin with and pretending she has nothing to do with it
That doesn't even make sense. WWE's demographic is a sports audience:

which is why I'm freaking telling you it's cool at least they have the balls to pull shit like that, if it was up to me they should stop promoting all of that garbage about cancer, military and family shit when they know for a fact the whole company is rotten from the get go, if anything they should take advantage of it and push the limit and boundaries like they did with the attitude era, finally realizing all that I said before

I hope segments like these start putting "family" garbage people away from the product so we can have something awesome instead of "tasteful" turd, because for a good while WWE have been stinking like nobody's business because they want to keep stuff as "tasteful" and family friendly as possible, and we get what in exchange? garbage, pure steaming garbage, you know, like Brodus clay dancing

They have the balls to show they have no home training? Yet Vince wants to be respected by mainstream so much.

which is complete and utter idiocy and hipocrisy like I said before, every time I see cancer shit, military awareness and B A STAR I facepalm a little because everyone and their grandmother knows that Vince is a class-A Bully and a jackass with no morals to begin with

it's what made him and the product so successful in any case

This was GREAT, and one of the highlights of the night. Very entertaining and something no one expected them to do. Loved it.

I just don't see how that's must see TV. It's trash. Society is different now. Trashy TV was cool in the late 90's because society as a whole was rebellious and trashy. While he most likely got backlash back then, it's nothing compared to the backlash he gets now because society as a whole has changed. Everyone is sensitive to real tragedies and issues, and wants a certain level of respect to those situations.

I think alot of people were expecting them to do that, someone even called it in the RAW discussion thread

Trashy TV is still big today. Just look at how successful Jersey Shore and all those teen mom shows are.

lol at some of the reactions in here. As soon as something like this happens you always have a bunch of clowns running around shouting about how "EDGY" and shit it was, and how it's like the Attitude Era. Is it really? Let's think of some of the segments that might've been around the same level as making fun of someone for almost dying during the AE.

Big Boss Man hanging
Katie Vick
Al Snow's dog chilli
Big Show's dad's funeral crashing
Oaklahoma (in WCW)
Hawk's drug issues and "suicide"

I'm sure there were others but let's check out those. Because the average wrestling fan looks back on these storylines so fondly right?


...Of course not, everyone looks back on those as being trash/stupid/black marks on the company and utterly tasteless, along with the Eddie's death storyline, Kurt wanting to rape Sharmell, Torrie Wilson's dad dying or something, Cole telling King his mom was in hell and all the other crap like that.

The Attitude Era wasn't loved for being "trashy" and "tastleness" and swearing offensive bullshit that only 10 year olds find entertaining, it was loved for the stars (Stone Cold, Rock, Taker, Kane, etc), the booking (every single guy, even Dean Malenko and Crash Holly, got a storyline), the characters (every guy on the roster had a distinct character, even the mid carders! Imagine that) and for being fresh and exciting. Not the horseshit I listed above.

Yes I'm sure King gave the o.k. which makes it somewhat better and it certainly isn't the biggest deal to me but it was still uncomfortable for some people, still tasteless, and still stupidly pointless as Punk got absolutely no heat.
