Just yesterday, Amin Elhassan, a personality at ESPN, made headlines when he reacted to Kevin Owens’ 8-year-old son’s elation at his father winning the WWE Universal championship by poking fun at the fact that said son doesn’t know pro wrestling isn’t real. It’s a tired refrain, one detractors go to often when attempting a lame zinger in the general direction of those who enjoy this particular form of entertainment.
It’s just low when aiming said lame zinger at a kid who was simply happy for his dad’s accomplishment.
Today, Mick Foley, the on-screen General Manager of Monday Night Raw, was made aware of it and is now leading the charge against Elhassan, even going so far as to say he is attempting to get in contact with folks at ESPN about it:
Elhassan’s reaction to this:
He is laughing his ass off off off off off off.
Really, it’s only a matter of time before this small controversy blows over and we all forget about it and move on.
