I just quote myself now and I would quote my own post everytime someone posts this but I would probably be banned because I would post the same comment 250 times in this thread.
Here we go again:

Now try to top that with any low moment you and all other smartasses and this comes from a big Attitude Era fan.
I am just sick of all people posting for months how they want edgier TV like in the AE and when something happens you post that AE never stooped that low.
Melanie Pillman interview, continuing Over the Edge, using the daughter Dakota for a extreme love triangle storyline between Goldust, Marlena and Pillman with the little girl appearing in the segments, Jim Ross appearing on TV right only a couple of weeks after the Bell's palsy when he couldn't properly speak and still cut promos as heel where you could barely understand him, Owen Hart proudly presenting a "Owen 3:16" shirt after almost paralyzing Steve Austin
Stop pretending like AE was so special because they were so edgy but never stooped that low. I listed many moments that were even lower.
The Attitude Era had many "tell me he didn't just say that" and "tell me he didn't just do that" moments and on Monday it was one of these moments.
Attitude Era was dirty and without taboos and that's why they had great ratings, PPV buys and kicked the ass of WCW because we liked those kind of segments

So what? Bruno Sammartino said that Attitude Era was garbage. Should I change my opinion about AE because a respected veteran like Sammartino says so? What has their opinion of this promo anything to do about their accomplishments in wrestling and that they are respected?
That's like saying that the colour green is the greatest colour in the world because Austin and Storm said so because they are respected veterans.
This is irrelevant and the only opinion relevant here is the opinion of Jerry Lawler and not because he is a respected veteran.
