It's quaint that you use Chikara as an example DRG. Fact remains, they come under far, far less scrutiny than WWE. If WWE these days had a guy running around pretending to be a barber, a white man pretending to be black, an unintelligible maniac (Ultimate Warrior), guys from the south pacific region played off as savages, a guy that thinks he's a boat(ffs!), fake policemen, models and yes, a dead man - if those gimmicks came out today, WWE would be crucified for it. Chikara is just fortunate that by comparison, it goes so much more unnoticed.
