The Redskins Name Debate Is Now Cheap Heat For Wrestlers

06.23.14 3 years ago 42 Comments

Heel wrestlers often take digs at the local sports team to rile up the crowd for what is known as cheap heat. On this week’s Monday Night Raw in Washington, D.C., Bad News Barrett came out for his match and took the easy yet awesome burn at the Redskins to achieve just that.

“I will humiliate Dolph Ziggler so much that he will have to change his name, just like your racist, constantly losing NFL team. Thank you very much.”

To be fair, the WWE isn’t without plenty of unfortunate racial imagery through the years. Nevertheless, this line was good enough to get one ‘Skins fan in the crowd to shake his head.
