I hate this show because How can you invite a wwe wrestler to your show while you say stop bullying. wrestling is one of the violent game that people used to do in bullying. The main thing that a kid learns to bully is by watching these wrestling matches. Most of the bully hit the target in a way that a wrestler would do.
How can you say stop bullying and invite a wrestler to your show.
Most of the people in US who hate wrestling is because it promotes violence.
I hate this. Again I hate this.
