    Val Venis getting involved in stuff he clearly knows nothing about.

    Whenever something newsworthy happens my first thought would always be “What does Val think about this”? *Sarcasim*

    Don’t give the tin foil hat wearer a platform, try to help him instead.

    So the WWE stops the people in Russia from being able to watch their programming and Val Venis is in the wrong for pointing it out.

    @Joseph–Val isn’t JUST pointing it out what’s happening, he’s saying it’s stupid. That’s his opinion.

    If you looking at the bigger picture, my guess is people HERE hope that by depriving the public THERE of things, they will revolt against/vote out Putin. Maybe the public will refuse to fight. Will the loss of viewing WWE programming cause this by itself? Of course not. But it’s possible that if many major businesses, sporting/entertainment organizations etc join in (and they have), the people may at least TRY to get rid of Putin.

    Sean is cut from the same cloth as Austin Aries. He doesn’t understand the end goal of the WWE and other companies cutting ties with Russia. Then again, Sean feels that governments should have no say in how companies are run (in the past, he’s called OSHA a socialist scam) so it’s not a shock that he’s taken this stance.

    If that’s the case, why haven’t I read about them doing the same thing anywhere else? The WWE cares about money and money alone. Look at their relationship with Saudi Arabia and how much money they make from that relationship. The Saudi’s were accused of that one guys murder and the WWE ran a show there. How many people from Russia actually watch the WWE? My guess is that it’s not that many. This is the WWE virtue signaling and nothing more.

    @Joseph–“This is the WWE virtue signaling and nothing more.”
    You’ll get no argument from me on this. I’m not saying WWE has some moral high ground on this matter, just pointing out what they APPEAR to be doing.

    Search/look for “WWE ends partnership with Russian broadcaster, shuts WWE Network down in Russia” on this site for comments I made before the ones above.
