When I read the report I thought it was AWESOME. I would have loved to see it, and hope that there is footage of it, AND that the footage is released.
Much worse has been said at PWG shows. (mostly from the likes of Joey and the Dynasty) I'm very grateful of the fact that PWG fans have much more restraint, and can see the comments for what they are.
Some of my favorite PWG moments are these comments. I think it makes it even funnier when people DON'T react to them.
-ASW 5 Bosh repeatedly called a fan a JEW...it was fucking hilarious. Even the fan it was directed at got a kick out of it.
-Joey has stopped just short of using slurs to describe Tornado. During a promo Joey cut right before a match between the two, Joey told Tornado he was going to own him like it was the 1800's. During another one of Joeys promos (in response to Tornado stealing the belt from Joey) he said "that's the only way YOU PEOPLE get things"
No riots have started as a result of any of this stuff. Its all great, high quality entertainment.
Big ups to Joey and Machine gun for generating such heat that people (even if it was mostly the kids) actually RIOTED.
on a side note:
Does anyone think this might have happened due to the upcoming Immigration marches? It makes me wonder, had they said this any other time of year would it have generated such a massive response? I think the upcoming MayDay (may 1st...today actually.) stuff might have had people even more "sensitive" to the stuff they said. If so, very clever move on the part of the two.
one can only wonder, I guess.
