IDK I'm torn its good but then I can't help but be PC about it.
If Jerry died I doubt they'd be joking about it. If he has another heart attack I doubt we'll ever see this footage again
'Good' is not one of the words I'd use to describe it.
And this is NOT the edgy TV that made WWF good back in 1997. Stone Cold flipping off and giving the Stunner to his boss, DX telling people to suck it, major injury angles like the Outlaws pushing Cactus and Funk off the stage in a dumpster, Austin getting covered in blood by Kane, Kane lighting Undertaker's casket on fire, Mike Tyson and Austin being pulled apart, Mankind getting tossed off the Cell, Austin driving the Zamboni out to the ring to attack Vince...that was edgy TV. It felt wild, adult and like anything could feasibly happen. That was the point-it kept people glued to the TV to see what transpired.
This...this is just bottom of the barrel crap. It doesn't make you say "wow, anything really CAN happen, I gotta keep watching,", it makes you say "they're really desperate enough to go down this road, aren't they? Sad."
