It really disturbs me when real life is brought into wrestling. I know why they did it, instant heel heat for Heyman but surely there must be another way than involving family. Is the Undertaker that desperate for a pop that he must involve his pregnant wife? I understand the divide between a work and real life but there are people who don't.
Then there is Heyman's suggestion about 'looking after' Sara but not the unborn child. Of course its supposed to make my skin crawl, but not look at the tv and think why are they even going there.
I just hope WWE doesn't take this any further, there really are some things that should be kept out of programming, unborn children are way up there.
That whole interview sounded a lot more like Paul Heyman's idea (or at least his writing) than anyone else's. Didn't Heyman take over the stalker angle near the end, when it really went off the rails? The creepier the better in his way of thinking, I'd imagine. He's written some things for Taker that worked very well, such as the shower scene with David Flair before WM, but it's always got that icky edge to it.
That mock crucifixion stuff Undertaker did a few years back was worse than involving genuine wives and their pregnancies, in my opinion. Now that's something that *should* have stayed off TV.
Eh, well, as I've said before, none of what you've mentioned above offends me.
Sara, however, bores me to TEARS. I don't think I can describe how uninterested I am in the Undertaker's wife! The Undertaker, fine, I like him, and I always have. But his wife is incredibly dull on tv, no more, please!
As soon as you're born you start dying, so you might as well have a good time.
Here's my letter to the WWE, as sent through their feedback system. Enjoy. First of all, I just want to tell you how much I respect everyone who works hard in the WWE to give us the great shows we see every week.
