10 Times WWE Went Too Far

Necrophilia, miscarriages, racism, and other uplifting topics...

Hulk Hogan Crown Jewel

Just when you thought 2018 couldn't get any weirder, WWE decided to use their controversial Crown Jewel pay-per-view to usher self-admitted racist Hulk Hogan back into their Universe, heaping further fuel on the garbage fire the show became months prior to its airing.

This isn't the first time WWE have crossed the lines of taste and decency, and it won't be the last. WWE's creative department is good at a lot of things, but dealing with difficult and potentially controversial topics isn't one of them, and they'll keep broaching subjects that should never be touched on a wrestling show ad infinitum.

It's all fantasy, and it's important not to good too carried away, but the company should absolutely be called out when they inflict such horrors on their viewership, particularly in the supposedly family-friendly PG era.

Honourable mentions are legion. Big Boss Man hijacking Big Show's father's funeral, Kurt Angle forcing himself on Sharmell, Kaientai choppy-choppying Val Venis' pee-pee, f*cking Eugene: each could easily have found their way onto our list, and WWE history is full of similarly gross examples.

These crimes against wrestling are just the tip of the iceberg...
