Do cheaters prosper?
Turnabout is fair play, especially when you’re under the tutelage of WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund. One week after Darren Young suffered a defeat to Titus O’Neil — who deviously grabbed a handful of tights during the pin — Young employed the same tactic to beat his former tag team partner this past Monday night. Although Backlund was furious at O’Neil’s previous rule-bending behavior, he couldn’t be prouder in the wake of his apprentice’s big win, claiming that he didn’t see Young do anything wrong.
Does Backlund’s quest to “Make Darren Young Great Again” now favor a whatever-it-takes-to-win approach over genuine sportsmanship, or was Young simply seizing the opportunity to score some appropriate retribution against O’Neil?
