WWE fans and the rest of the pro wrestling was up in arms yesterday when a clip from comedian Tom Segura was released on social media. He berated pro wrestling fans and said they were “f*cking ret*rded.” Now he is making his point a bit clearer.
Following the backlash that came his way, Segura made sure that fans saw another clip of him discussing pro wrestling with a much more positive spin on it.
“Of course I understand why people love wrestling — it’s awesome. Those guys are real athletes. Maybe it’s stunts, but try that you get f*cking hurt and the drama involved? You can follow it like you follow anything. It’s like a show. It’s like a f*cking soap opera for men and I think it’s great. I f*cking love wrestling.”
Segura also admitted that while he doesn’t really consider pro wrestling fans as the highest of intelligence, at least they are smarter than anti-vaxxers and flat-eathers.
These comments from Tom Segura hit home with a lot of fans. It appears that the debate will continue on regarding what kind of entertainment value pro wrestling provides.
