8 Real Reactions Of WCW Wrestlers Being Punished On Air

WCW Censored 2000.

Were you ever told at school, having whispered one 'witty' aside to your pal too many, to stand up and share it before the class? Or, in the case of particularly cruel teachers fed up of rubbers and other assorted stationery being hurled between desks, to climb up on a chair and sing 'I'm a little teapot'?

Hopefully you weren't, but if the answer is 'yes', then you'll understand first hand the hideous anguish of being dressed down before your peers. Thankfully, this tends to abate once you enter the professional world, where HR protocols dictate any disciplinary action takes place behind closed doors. There are usually procedures.

Professional wrestling, as has been stated umpteen times in the past, has no real commonality with this world Years after graduating, superstars in major promotions - one in particular - can expect to be humiliated for their apparent misdemeanours not just before their peers, but before a live TV audience. The embarrassment is the punishment.

WWE, who delight in spite, is obviously the standard bearer of this practice. But their expired rival WCW was known to air its grievances on, well, the air too. Did they all take it on the chin and move on?

He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
