A spokesperson from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) announced today that the animal rights organization will attempt to shut down the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony next weekend over the induction of dog-cooker Big Boss Man.
“We will not stand idly by as World Wrestling Entertainment venerates a man who admittedly killed, cooked, and fed a beloved chihuahua to its human companion,” the spokesperson told reporters this morning.
“PETA has freed Damian, Matilda and Frankie from the evil clutches of WWE, and now we will honor the memory of Pepper.”
Pro wrestler Al Snow, the former owner and inadvertent eater of Pepper, said he will join PETA in picketing outside the Hall of Fame ceremony to protest the Big Boss Man’s induction.
In the late 1990s, during a time of particularly bad writing on WWE television, the former prison guard convinced Snow — a charter member of the J.O.B. squad — to eat a dish he did not realize was sauteed chihuahua in a red wine reduction.
Snow said the only way he will ever forgive WWE for this egregious lapse in judgment is if he is inducted into the Hall of Fame himself — a statement that caused Mick Foley to burst out in riotous laughter.
