Lifting weights and eating steaks
A Canadian guy is alright though, right?
Bro, its called "in-group preference" and its really not that complicated. It makes entertainment comfy. Protip: You cannot GUILT people into enjoying something that they do not want to enjoy in an ENTERTAINMENT product.Welp, mission failed.
Of course you don't WANT to sound like a racist, Vince. No one does. Especially a massive racist.
In all seriousness though, I don't think Russo is racist - I'll put this down to an unfortunate turn of phrase on his part. However, this attitude is complete fucking HORSESHIT.
I'm sorry to the Americans around here, but you can't carry on disguising this systemic bigotry as "Patriotism" like this. Saying "I'm American, so I don't want this foreigner to be here" is not patriotic, it's racist.
I'm not getting into a political argument here about "Oh, so we should allow our countries to become overrun with foreigners, should we?" Of course I don't believe that.
But outright stating that "I'm An American, so I will NEVER GIVE A SHIT ABOUT A JAPANESE GUY" is so UNBELIEVABLY ignorant and bigoted that I'm kind of shocked that he didn't realise what he'd said, and edit that shit out of the podcast.
I'm English - should I never give a shit about "An American Guy" in WWE?
Is that how this works?
Or what, are you going to state "American Company, American Workers" at me?
I suppose that's great, if you're a communist. But as far as I can tell, America isn't quite Communist yet - as much as Trump is trying.
That quote isn't recent
its from an old as fuck interview from (defunct) wrestleline
I point this out pages ago. But folks still bite lol.
Tajiri always did well for himself.Okay, we all know the obvious Eddie and Mysterio, but those 2 aside, with all the japanese and mexican wrestlers who have tried their luck in wwe, how many were really over with the crowd?
Yokuzuna portrayed as Japanese, but he was Samoan. I can´t think of anybody right on top of my head?
Does this mean Russo is right? Nope. I just mean that every Japanese and/ or Mexican wrestler is slapped with a stereotypical gimmick that nobody cares about and start riding lawnmovers or chopping things while they speak with a funny accent.
