->The major problem is that the match is build around how fun it'd be to watch a guy [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain beat the shit out of his mistress]]. That's weird enough, and then Parker gives an admittedly hilarious heel interview about how he's gonna beat her to death and rub her face into the ground because that's what the people at home want to do to ''their'' mistresses or whatever, but are too chicken to. It's so over-the-top and horribly offensive that Mean Gene is ''[[{{Corpsing}} dying]]'' in the background. It's one of those things that'd be problematic as f*ck if it wasn't [[FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit an evil womanizing cartoon colonel]] saying he's going to slap his sidepiece in the face with his dick to honor the memory of Music/ElvisPresley.
