I love Cornettes opinion on everything, I value his opinion more than Ja Rules’
I wonder what Lou Thesz would think of this?
Have I said gross yet?
He's already rolling on his grave over women wrestling.
At one time you could have gotten away with doing this and it would have been no bid deal. But welcome to 2019 folks. In 2000, in say CZW, this would have been pretty much kosher. People need to understand the backlash that will come with stunts like this today, and not deflect the criticism when it comes in. She needed to be prepared to own it, she isn't.
Acting like this is ok because they would do this in the past, is like pretending people can still make the same jokes about gays, the physically and mentally handicapped and races the same as they did in the past.
And it also just reinforces the stereotype that only mongoloids and basement dwellers are fans of pro wrestling to the uniniated. It's there with dick flip guy and idiots going splat from high elevations....it's fodder for mockery.
Its all grown men playing dress up and fake fighting in their underwear
If you dont wanna be mocked youre in the wrong group pal
When wrestling fans have seen absolutely EVERYTHING, then this is exactly what you have to do to shock the wrestling community.
None of us knew who pracilla was before this stunt.
And catholics priests wear dresses and funny hats....doesn't mean people don't take that shit serious.
This shit was retarded...anyone who liked it is retarded...anyone defending it is retarded...deflections about Mr Socko are retarded...Mr Socko was retarded...people who paid money to see this shit are retarded...fucking shiz with a z...
Or when some fat Samoan guy shoved his ass in people’s faces
... it’s a fucking pantomime dude. It was a spot done at an over 21 show that had maybe fifty people there at a maximum. The difference between this and what happened in WWE etc in the attitude era is that this wasn’t on TV for millions of people around the world to see; if that’s the hill you want to die on re: mockery. Check your outrage, snowflake
I didn't find the stunt particularly entertaining or funny, but I wasn't the demographic. Know your audience, the folks in attendance thought it was wild and fun. But now we have social media, offensive things will be put on a pedestal for the world to criticize. She made a name for herself, watch her end up in AEW now.
Anyone outraged by this won't even remember it being a thing in a couple months.
It was used as a way to denigrate the industry and it's fanbase by mainstream media....again.....just because it was done in the past......doesn't make it right to do it today. If it was done in a movie or play...or a fucking mime did it....I'd react the same way.
Who gives a shit if it was done infront of 30 people in a bar....it got out and made us all look bad.
'Because none of you can work.'
Brutallly honest. Love Cornette.
You're a pro wrestler?
Hell no....I like having money.
Then who's 'us'?
US as in fans....pretty easy to comprehend I thought.
