Most of the time, we are partial to our native country.  We were created here, born here, and live here.  We tend to linger away when somebody brings our home country into question.  In the pro-wrestling community, we have people from all over the world who are patriotic to their own country as well and are not afraid to call out other countries on their flaws.  Below are our Top 5 most Anti-American wrestling gimmicks.

5. Yokozuna and Mr. Fuji

Many years back, the WWE brought in a sumo wrestler weighing in at 650 lbs to the main roster. This man was of the Samoan decent but was portrayed as Japanese. His manager Mr. Fuji, who also managed several tag teams, was considered an “evil heel”. He referred to us Americans as “scum”, often throwing shade to Hulk Hogan in his promos. He once even called Hogan a “yellow belly”.

Top Republicans break with Donald Trump after he said “3000 people did not die” in Puerto Rico

Nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico but if you listen to President Donald Trump, that never happened.

Yes, he really is denying that 3,000 people died because of the hurricane.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000,” Trump said on Twitter on Thursday morning.

Trump said this despite the governor formally raising the death toll number from 64 to 2,976 after a study from The George Washington University.

Top Republicans broke from the President. “no reason to dispute those numbers,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan. “Those are just the facts of what happened.”

“I disagree with @POTUS– an independent study said thousands were lost and Gov. Rosselló agreed. I’ve been to Puerto Rico 7 times & saw devastation firsthand. The loss of any life is tragic; the extent of lives lost as a result of Maria is heart wrenching. I’ll continue to help PR,” Florida Senator Rick Scott said in a statement on Twitter.

Trump has continued to deny that his administration could have done more in the aftermath of the storm. Earlier this week, he praised his administration and said that his handling of the relief efforts were “an incredible, unsung success.”

Hold your horses! The whole uproar over Henry Cavill no longer being associated with the “Superman” franchise is just an invented conflict, according to what sources told TMZ.

It is true that Cavill felt he was underpaid for the role but there has been no discussion about the future of his role because there is no active “Superman” project in the works right now.

Cavill will still be in consideration with others if and when the next movie is greenlit. Apparently, people assumed that he moved on from “Superman” after accepting a deal with Netflix for “The Witcher” but the fact is that there is no conflict so there’s a chance he will be back in the role.
