If you ignorantly throw up a Nazi-centric sign during the entrance of a German wrestler, you deserve to be thrown out of any event ever.— christine (@ChristineLRM) August 4, 2019
Props to @Marcel_B_WWE for calling it out and telling him he should be ashamed of himself. That's not all he should feel. #NXTLargo
