September 22, 2017 at 8:00 am WWE issued a response on Thursday to an article posted by The Washington Post on Wednesday about what they perceived as “racist promos” by WWE Champion Jinder Mahal to Shinsuke Nakamura during the 9/19 episode of Smackdown Live in Oakland.“Just like many other TV shows or movies, WWE creates programming with fictional personalities that incorporates real world issues and sensitive subjects. As a producer of such TV shows, WWE Corporate is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.”The Post asked fans who attended Smackdown Live in Oakland to send in e-mails to give a reaction to the promo conducted by Mahal as during the promo segment on Tuesday, the Oakland crowd chanted “THAT’S TOO FAR” after Mahal compared Nakamura to “Mr. Miyagi” from the Karate Kid movie franchise.If anyone was at last night’s WWE #SmackDownLIVE in Oakland, please contact me for a story about racist promos.

PSHAW I say!I want to hear Cryme Tyme’s opinion on this. Kurt Angle Everything is a real world issue these days, it would appear! Now Playing Up Next Victor Fiori Cesaro What I found funny is the crowd response to this (with the “that’s too far” chant) and compare that to the crowd response from the lynching of The Undertaker. Seemed like that chant should of happened then instead of now. I’m interested to see how they progress with Jinder and if they’ll drop the belt at HIAC. Now Playing Up Next Comments are closed. The Joker has a question for you Vince.What happened, did your grapefruit’s drop-off? September 22, 2017 at 3:11 am It is because Vince’s wife is in the Trump administration… and the Washington Post is not a fan of the current administration.. so they seek out a fictional program to find things to write about…. I guess reporting real news is too much like work!!!!

WWE’s been known for doing stuff that’s edgy,but when someone calls them out for it they either edit the video or don’t even upload it. If they’re going to let a bunch of snowflakes peer pressure them into removing something or they’re that concern with what people thinks of them then they should’ve did it to begin with. I wasn’t even offended with the promo. Impact offers Military Personnel free entry to this weekend’s California events September 22, 2017 at 5:06 am Fair enough.
