Ever heard a “fat joke” (let alone a storyline revolving entirely around “weight”) about Husky Harris? Or, say, fucking Earthquake? Yokozuna? WOAH NO SHIT nope probably never happened. Give me a break.
What’s sad is that Kharma actually got more than three seconds of camera time and it wasn’t spent primping her tits. During the promo I thought, wow, she just sounds like a wrestler, just another person on the roster… and then a nice heaping shit was taken all over it.
I don’t like it either, but let’s be fair, they make fat jokes about the Big Show on a weekly basis. Made one last night during the Capitol Punishment promo.
But that is different, Big Show is a goofy guy that makes self-deprecating jokes. Kharma is supposed to be a dangerous monster, not a “fat chick.” Then there’s the Mickie James situation, who isn’t even remotely close to anything that could be considered overweight, let alone fat.
Sad as that fact is, it does make me smile whenever Bret shows up, you can just tell the guy is having so much fun now. He seemed so bitter and anti-WWE for so long (not without reason), even when he came back for the Hall of Fame. But ever since January 4, 2010, he just looks like a huge weight has been lifted off his chest. It’s a true happy ending to a story that got incredibly ugly. Things don’t turn out like that often enough, it’s heartwarming.
Jason Mann, Razor, and K Sawyer Paul talk about the life and legacy of Macho Man Randy Savage, suckas who don’t like Booker T, what Impact Wrestling really means, ROH’s new TV deal, R-Truth, whether WWE is in more of a spring funk than usual, and how wrestling media is failing us.
