The story itself is sad and not funny, but how the fuck did Yahoo allow that headline to get posted. It's unintentionally funny and I am ashamed to have laughed at it, but damnit if it isn't kinda funny in a 'I'm an asshole for laughing' kind of way..
I really think that this can hurt a wrestler. Take Cena for example, his matches aren't really good. But fans cheer when he does his five knuckle shuffle deal. So when he is looking for pops during a match, he goes to that.
