This happens more often than you’d think, but we’re gonna have to call out Dana Brooke for this transgression.

During the women’s gauntlet match, Bayley tweaked her knee while facing Brooke, who hit a chop block. With Bayley clearly injured and ripe for the picking, Dana reared back and grabbed… a chinlock.

No, seriously.

This isn’t a knock against a resthold. But it defied common sense to watch Brooke chop block Bayley’s tweaked knee and then immediately ignore it for the rest of the match.

Mickie James, who entered after Bayley defeated Dana, didn’t target the knee either, but she did hit some more impactful moves as opposed to chinlocks.

He fortunately became a fan in time for WrestleMania III and came back as a fan after a long high school hiatus before WM XIV. Monday nights in the Carlson household are reserved for viewing Raw -- for better or worse.
