Glad you brought up Kaiju Big Batel. KBB sells itself as a pure comedy show. Now I'm not the most knowledgeable expert on Chikara, but don't they run serious programs as well as the comedy? If they are pure comedy, it doesn't matter, but I stand by my point if they are trying to mix stuff like this with angles they are trying to sell as "serious".

I dont know if this is true anymore, but the people at Kaiju considered what they do "performance art" and don't really like the pro wrestling.

The first time they had a match at the Arena on a Chikara show, people shat all over them.

In the old days, Chikara kept the comedy mainly to the lower to mid card.. the Olsens, the North Stars, the Colony, Mantis and Hydra...

Comedy for kids on WWE - lame, waste of time, not wrestling
Slomo wrestlers and terrorist cows - HILARITY

Goofy comedy involving a midget dressed as a leprechaun and goofy comedy involving hypnosis/a mass dance-off between wrestling opponents aren't exactly worlds apart.

The humour on WWE works for their target audience. Kids eat that shit up, and placing it in a vacuum it's no more stupid or goofy than this kind of stuff. But one is an insult to wrestling and the other is hilarious and all in good fun.

I can't argue with you there. I'm a big fan of Hornswoggle. In fact, seeing him was one of the highlights of the one WWE live show I attended.

Would it pretty much nullify the show as a piece of engaging drama? Totally.




BTW, Dexter should totally do this. And I'm sure Michael C. Hall would go for it. It's not like he didn't do it before and it was AWESOME:

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

What if Dexter was a sitcom?

I guess I'm a bad person because I HATED this hypnotizing gimmick, but I loved the Zombie on ECW making fun of the SciFi channel.

I guess it's all about context for me. If I'm at a show run by a company that is 99% of the time trying to be grounded in some sort of reality (like WWE/TNA) then a spot like that would drive me crazy.

If it were a different company that was the other way around, I'd be in the right frame of mind to enjoy it.

It remind me of the time I was dragged to see "Life is Beautiful" in the theater. I was told it was a comedy and I kept waiting for the funny to start...then the Nazis showed up and it was getting less and less funny and I was getting more and more annoyed. It was a good movie, but I went into it expecting one thing, and got another.

Don't judge a book by its cover, someone once said. I'll leave it at that. And I think the GCW owner would be the first to admit that the company is run on what could politely be described as a "sparse" budget.
