Major professional wrestling promotions are no strangers to making the unpopular decision. And while there are numerous examples of promotions surrendering to popular demand, such as Stone Cold Steve Austin's transition to an antihero babyface despite the WWE's best efforts to make him a villain, there are examples of incidents that incited anger, confusion and/or riot conditions.
Popular WWE anti-diva Kharma is all but done with the company following a long layoff due to an impromptu pregnancy. Fans had been waiting anxiously for her return for well over a year; however, it appears that they will not get the opportunity to see her in action for the time being.
With the inclusion of social media sites such as Twitter, the fan outrage monster has been supplemented with yet another avenue to vent, making damage control a bit trickier.
No matter the era, however, there have always been instances of a match or a moment sparking controversy, thereby staking its claim to infamy in the process.
