Here's today's "WWE creative just doesn't get what their product should be all about" moment. For those of you who watched Smackdown and saw the hideous segment where Teddy Long keeled over before he could marry Kristal, well on WWE.com they are playing it up like has had a heart attack. Well, I should say that is what they are trying to play it up as. They actually wrote that WWE doctor Rios said, "“Mr. Long then suffered a myocardial infraction with cardio myopathy. As a result, he is currently semi-comatose.” Uh, I think you mean an "infarction" there Doc. Anyway, once again we see that WWE isn't a wrestling company, they make movies (you know, the kind that bomb their first week in the theatres). Oh yeah, and you want more proof what nitwits they have on creative (which approves everything that goes on the website now)? Check out this gem that was in the same article. "After being rushed to a local medical facility, Long’s doctors claim the groom was suffering from hypertension, which was worsened by the ingestion of the erectile dysfunction medicine Viagra." Boy, that is a real side-slapper isn't it? I can't wait for the ALS and cancer storylines that are sure to follow.
