We don't have a lot in the way of details, but apparently there was a major scene at yesterday's WWE show in Munich when JBL started goose stepping and making Nazi signs. That's illegal in Germany and the Bavarian Governor's Chief of Staff, and his children, were at the show.

File under: How dumb can a person be?

I mean, there's cheap heel heat, and then there's making light of genocide in the name of lowbrow entertainment.

Bad, bad, form JBL.

IMO I think Bradshaw is just one big fat bigot who doesn't give a sh*t bout nebody who is not a white anglo-saxon american, im not just talking bout his character on tv he is probably like this in real life from what I heard he is a big bully backstage and a real asshole. So that's just what I have to say bout JBL

Bubba Ray (who was in "full heel mode" yesterday) did exactly the same thing on his way out - Like you said, sometimes they only think about getting some cheap heat!

By the way: It wasnīt the first time Bradshaw "greeted" us german fans this way. I remember him doing it before. (1996? Long hair and bullrope!)

And Triple H did it as well! (1999?)

Itīs bad taste, ok!
But at the same itīs WWE - You know?!

Canadians & French=evil cowards! Japanese=stupid!
Women=sex objects!
Germans= nazis!

If that's illegal there then you can probably say "The Passion" episode of South Park will never be shown in Germany.

Nope, JBL is a hoss, and the hoss's will never be fired for something stupid, if anything Vince will push him even harder for getting some pub, no matter how tasteless it is.

That's a little bit extreme, to say the least. It was stupid, but I don't think we'd be clamoring for Christian (or most other heels) to be given his two weeks if he did the same thing. Tasteless and crass, and it's heat cheaper than that generated by the ovens that cremated the jews (BA DUM CHING). See how easy it is to make a tasteless joke? It slips sometimes. Cut the guy a break, he seems like a moron anyways.



Caped Boy: Excuse me, ladies. You may remember me as the guy who came to dinner a few weeks ago with underwear on my head. My name is Keith Stat from Milbourne, New Jersey. State bird, the mosquito. And as you may have heard I am recently a crowned class B dungeon-master. So if any of you would like to play D&D today, please speak now or forever hold your peace.

Caped Boy: Anyone? Alexa!
[Alexa gives him a withering glare.]
Caped Boy: Maybe you would like to join in? We do need a druid, and you have definitely cast a level 5 charm spell on me.
Alexa: In your dreams, douche-bag!
Caped Boy: Douche-bags are hygienic products, I take that as a compliment. Thank you.
[Keith walks off]
Alexa: Ewww!

So if JBL performed an illegal action, has he been prosecuted by the Germans? And will WWE play up his actions like the time Vader was arrested overseas?

This sounds like such a stupid thing to do, and I don't buy the argument that it just slips out. How many people would honestly think "hey, I'm in Germany I can piss people off by pretending to be a Nazi!"?. It probably has its genesis in the fact that Bradshaw thought it would generate cheap heat and that he didn't realise that it was rather serious.

Another thing; how serious did it get? "A maor scene" doesn't explain the actual extent of the incident or whether anything happened to Bradshaw.

So you're saying that all Americans are idiots based on what Vince McMahon does? Get a freakin' clue.

You sound pretty sure that it wasn't Vince in the first place who took him aside before they left and said "Now Bradshaw, we don't know how over a mexican will be in Germany, so try to get as much heat as you can over there so they'll at leat boo you. Oh, I know! Walk all rigid like this, and do the whole 'heil Hilter' thing! That'll get them riled up! Man, the people that work in my office are right... I really am a genius..."

It is a bit much (just a bit), but I can understand the limited logic that went into it. "Hey, I'm in Germany I can piss people off by pretending to be a Nazi!" actually seems to be a pretty fair assessment of how much thought went into this. These guys aren't exactly scholars, you know?

Baron Von Raschke used to goosestep all the time prior to applying the Iron Claw that was taught to him in German death camps, so the goosestep does have some historical lineage in wrestling. As far as Bradshaw being stupid in Germany: He's stupid when he's not in Germany, so why would he make visiting Germany special?

Goose step, isn't that the thing Chris Jericho used to do back in WCW?

Did he (or any of the other idiots who did it) get any kind of charges filed against them back then?

The sick thing is, I can see this getting him FACE heat back here in the States. "OMG, those dang stupid Germans tried to arrest JBL just for pokin' a little fun? He may be a rich prick, but he's our boy!"

Cynical prediction: We'll hear nothing of this, Bradshow won't even get a slap on the wrist, and he'll still be main-eventing the next couple of PPVs.
