"So tonight in Des Moines Iowa I was having fun being a fan of the product and holding up 2 different signs. One said I'd rather be at home watching Nitro for $9.99. the other said Raw is RAGElife. Around 9pm a skinny whit male with a black polo shirt with the WWE logo asked me for the sign. I asked which one. He took the Raw is RAGElife and left. A few minutes later he came back and asked for the other signs. Next to him was a huge black male in a suit with a wwe lapel pin. I tossed the sign reddit wanted me to make. And then was told to leave the arena. I refused and the as threatened with arrest After a few minutes I went with them to the vending area where 5 men I suits surrounded me trying to arrest me for a sign an being someone the WWE didn't like. I begged them to bring the police so I could he arrested and they wouldn't bring them. After 5 maybe 10 minutes of the bullshit I left left to my own will because I was tired of the shit. Fuck WWE Vince McMahon and everyone involved. They also took the person next to me sign that said Cena it's time for a heel turn. Incredible..."
