The point of pro wrestling is to suspend your belief. To make you think you're watching something that's realistic and believable. Vince ruined that long ago, and instead created the image of wrestling that is just fake bullshit with no morals. Yet he does hypocritical bullshit like BE A STAR.
which is awesome, the whole thing is fake, if it wasn't there wouldn't be storylines, writers or bookers doing the whole thing backstage and being one of the backbones of pro-wrestling, or at least, the WWE, the whole B A STAR it's complete borderline hypocrisy and imho it should not exist at all with backgrounds such as attitude era

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"

Unbelieveable. And then McMahon wonders why he's been shit on by the general public for well over 20 years now.
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

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

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.

Re: Punk & Heyman mocking King's heart attack

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.
