The WWE is an industry which thrives off its audience (largely white) of rednecks from south America and the chavs of the known world.
Unless there is a monkey doing good party tricks, they wouldn't be liking it. Times are changing nowso who knows what may come in the future. Maybe a thread about there being no Chinese WWE champion.
Ricky Steamboat was an intercontinental champ I believe and headlined a Wrestlemania with the late great Macho Man Randy Savage.
