    The story still remains the same though folks, Brodus Clay gets more TV time and is more talked about than if he was another boring monster heel who would be buried faster than his current gig. It is entertaining even though its not very PC, Somebody better call my Momma!

    Seeing that midget in a singlet was disturbing

  • Seth

    Cause having your US champion in a comedy role doesn’t make anything better.

  • Bill

    Santino & B. Clay was a better team to me, but whatever.
