This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw may have given us one of the worst segments of “entertainment” that we’ve ever seen from the WWE, and that’s saying something. From DX giving Triple H wedding presents to the awkward “This is your life, Bayley” fiasco that we got last year, there have been a lot of lows from the WWE, but the “Lashley Sisters” segment may take the cake.
Although I don’t recommend it, you can check out the segment in question in the video above. During Sami Zayn’s interview of the Lashley sisters, the crowd was beyond dead. Even a “Rusev Day” chant didn’t last longer than a few seconds. By the time Bobby Lashley came out to the ring, the crowd couldn’t get into it.
Eventually, Lashley fought off a four-man assault, but by then, it was too late. Today the WWE has received a fair amount of criticism for the segment, both for its mocking of the trans community and lack of entertainment value.
Two of the three men portraying Lashley’s sisters, “Mr. Everything” Victor Andrews and Max Caster, took to Twitter to respond to the criticism.

At the end of the day, all we can hope for is that this ridiculous storyline is dropped and Lashley’s family is never brought up again. I’m sure it’s what Bobby Lashley and Sami Zayn are hoping for at this point.
What did you think of the segment? Was it in poor taste or was it just a badly written bit of television? Let us know below.
