WWE Gets Mainstream Coverage (And Mocked) On ESPN Top 10

Interestingly, even after Jonathan Coachman seemed to indicate that all WWE coverage by ESPN was coming to an end during the wake of the JBL/Mauro Ranallo situation, the company has made an appearance on the network anyway. During ESPN's Top 10 Plays of the Night, Braun Strowman and the Big Show breaking the ring made it in at #9. During the segment, the announcers made fun of it while quipping "Aw jeez, did Coachman produce this? You know that's completely scripted, right?"

    Typical it’s not a sport because it’s scripted mentality. Ahh for the good old days where Haku or Lawler would slap the taste out of your mouth for saying such things. I am joking of course and do not condone real violence but these people need to understand this is a sport these guys and women are athletes and even though it is scripted there athletic ability should not be questioned. There are not many pro athletes in the world that can do what a pro wrestler does. That is why you don’t see alot of retired or injured pro athletes make the transition. It is tougher than they make it look, if you don’t believe me go to your local pro wrestling school and tell them you want to bump that will make a believer out of anyone.

    I have no idea why EPSN started covering WWE and continues to. It’s not a sport.

    Do they cover Magicians? Because WWE has more in common with stage magic than it does with football.
