The Repo Man was so disgusted, he swore allegiance to Putin and became Krusher Kruschev.

WWE has received a lot of criticism from fans who saw the American flag touch the ground before the Flag Match between Rusev and Jack Swagger at Summerslam. JBL mentioned it on commentary. It's considered disrespectful for the flag to touch the ground.

Was not a Flag Match.  Happy about that though.

And this isnt

Isnt really a well thought out piece (LOLDIRTSHEETS) considering they cite one tweet.

Maybe people should call and ask for a refund if they were offended though.

The flag's used to having dirt on it, what with Swagger being buried for so many months.
 
2014-08-21 09:33:38 AM  
Obviously it was a fake American flag.
But it was still real to some people, dammit.

So, if the flag touches the ground, does it suck all of the power out of the country?  Does a baby bald eagle die?

No it just sells great before Hulking up. Monster comeback, big boot, leg drop. 1,2,3. U.S.A. U.S.A. U.S.A.

Both are flag matches,

We once received a letter to the editor at the newspaper I worked at from some old lady, complaining that the OJ Simpson murder trial coverage belonged in the Sports section of our paper. Our Sports Editor replied that he'd be happy to comply, but it would mean that all Jeffrey Dahmer coverage would be moving to the Food section on the Society page.

I have never seen it done the way it was done at Summer Slam.  It is usually a capture the flag style.  I will take your word for it though.

With WWE "Creative", who the hell knows what goes on? These are the same idiots that turned Miz heel last year, then remembered he had a movie coming out so they undid it.

Maybe I'm misremembering, but I thought I saw Yokozuna drape the US flag across Hacksaw once, either before or after he destroyed him with a bunch of Banzai drops.
 
2014-08-21 03:10:55 PM  
Wasn't that the point? The evil Russian attacks the American from behind, causing him to drop the flag. Boo, Russia! Boo!

Amazingly, Swagger got all the blame for injuring Rusev in retaliation. As if he had started it.

IIRC, he destroyed him with one or two Banzai drops, then draped the flag on him...then went full dick and hit him with another Banzai drop with the flag draped on Duggan.

Almost everything the WWe and many other people do with the US Flag violates Chapter 1 of Title 4 of the US Code.  However, there are no punitive measures for violating this particular Federal law.  Because most of what occurs inside the ring is "art", they probably wouldn't get punished if there were.

I think maybe 0.1 percent of the US population could tell you any particular detail in the above law.  Even Dutch's reference to it as the "Stars and Bars" violates the law, technically.

Even the Astronauts of Apollo 11 violated the law concerning the flag touching the ground, they knocked the first flag planted over when they left the moon.

If Rusev burned the flag in front of Ziggler, he'd sell it so much that we'd all become Wolverines to fight off the incoming invasion.
