There's a clever way to dig the hometown team and be funny and then you have a guy like Bubba Ray Dudley grabbing the mic and screaming that Michael Jordan is a bitch. I seem to remember Angle, Edge, and Christian were rather funny with their schtick.

It's fine for getting a pop for a crowd at a house show or before going live, but WWE make worldwide television now. It just seems like a holdover from old-timey wrestling. It's always just a "huh?" moment for me as someone with no interest in US sports.
