It sure seems like a whole lot of WWE is problematic to some degree. Why do they keep supporting it? Especially when they seem to be disappointed with most of what they're doing.

A mixture of nostalgia from the older fans and WWE being the only real mainstream option for the younger fans. WWE has been a bad product for years, and has done a good job of holding back great talent of reaching their true potential because the boss is an ego maniac (proof: NXT has produced several "can't miss" talents, but when they go to WWE they're not special anymore. Bayley should've been the next John Cena).

@crimsonjester: Yeah, it's a bummer that everyone got their hopes up for this year's WM when WWE has a track record on putting on bad shows. I thought it was fine but I went in with low expectations.

New Japan is the best wrestling in the world, everything going on with the Bullet Club has probably been the best storytelling in wrestling in years. They are doing some legendary stuff with Okada, and their expansion into the US is very exciting.

The indie scene is very healthy also. Seeing guys like Riddle/WALTER/Keith Lee coming into their own over the past year is awesome to see. Ring of Honor is finding quite a lot of success as well now, becoming a solid number 2 in wrestling. UK scene also strong.

Wrestling is at it's best right now if you can look pass WWE.

@ericsmith: Fair, and I forgot to mention that she called out Mayweather for being accused of Domestic Abuse when she's dating Travis Browne, who's been accused of the same thing... so yeah, there's plenty of stuff.

@bugbarbecue: Yeah, it's one of those things where you just have to through your hands in the air and say "I dunno, make up your own opinion about Ronda, no sides are completely wrong".

She should've apologized, but once again she's stubborn (the same stubbornness is what caused her to start losing in her fights in UFC, she was determined to Box with everyone who was a better Boxer than her instead of relying on her Judo... but that's a different topic).

But her match was very good and she looked great in it. That was my second favorite Mania match behind Asuka and Charlotte.

Am I missing something in regards to Rousey? Why does Abby hate her?

It might be for other things, but it's probably because of the notion that Ronda is transphobic and a Sandy Hook truther.

It's a big messy situation that happened a few years ago where the big talk in MMA was a women's fighter named Fallon Fox came out as a transgendered fighter after she had fought a few times. She had a man's body for about 30 years and recently changed at the time and had fights against women, two of the fights she won by knockout. After coming out, she had another fight where she won by knockout after she broke a girls orbital bone, busted her open, and gave her a concussion in the fight.

A lot of people in the MMA scene called it unfair because at the time she still kinda had the physique of a man's body, which gave an unfair advantage to her (I think she was fighting within two years after her transformation and the Olympics don't let athletes compete within three years? I might be wrong on that). Ronda was one of the people that called her out on it, and personally attacked her with some not nice words. The blogger community (think Gawker, etc.) took the personal attack as an attack on transgender people as a whole and wrote on Ronda being Transphobic. Ronda's too stubborn to apologize, but she has said that she supports transgender people, and doesn't have a problem with it if the person is approved by a commission to fight, so take that as you will.

She also retweeted a Sandy Hook conspiracy video with something along the lines of "makes you think". People (rightfully) didn't think that was cool, and she deleted the tweet and I don't think has mentioned it ever again.

Ronda isn't forcing her beliefs to other people (who knows, she might not be a Sandy Hook truther and she probably just doesn't want to talk about it), but that sort of stuff is there so people hate Ronda for it.

At least Don Rickles got a chance to spend his last few moments in Nigeria. I'm sure he really enjoyed that.
