  2. I hope John Cena or Shinsuke interrupts Jinder's celebration lmao
  3. Thank You, Nakamura
  4. The man is so magnetic
  5. That theme
  6. Well that was somewhat racist
  7. it's mesmerizing
  8. they said they're gonna remix it or something
  9. I didn't find it racist but it was definitely racially uncomfortable
  10. I didn't like how they associated Indian culture with Mahal as a heel
  11. That just attaches negative conotations to an entire country and culture which really is not something they should do
  12. tbf if I have Poutine in the ring and talk about hockey, some fans would boo
  13. If Mahal was a face and did that, they'd cheer it
  14. ....Mahal is Canadian
  15. Yeah but that doesn't make him not Indian
  16. And also the update on Flair, classy
  17. Hope Ric is okay :emoji_slight_frown:
