Most disgusting promotional tactics can probably include:

WWE Jinder’s racist promos on Nakamura
ICW blowjob angle with Bram and then uploading it on YouTube
WWE using too many McMahon’s on tv
WWE Stephanie emasculating everyone with no comeuppance
The whole Canuck Pro wrestling ordeal
WWE mishandling NXT callups
AAA Sexy Star shoot arm bar
and WWE Jinder Mahal winning the WWE title just to appeal to the Indian market

Joe and I said Canuck Pro but there are definitely a few good ones to choose from.

How about that Florida promotion that promoted nine shows Mania weekend and didn't have any?

Ryan Satin’s tabloid-style harassment of Jericho and Meltzer’s mishandling of the Orleans sexual assault allegations. (Forgive me if those are both 2018.)

Satin's harassment of Jericho was pretty annoying. Dude lost his sources and is just a social media aggregation now.

Was anyone actually harmed by Canuck pro? If not, Canuck Pro can live in our memories as a hilarious and fun concept.

Sexy Star is a good one.

Did Adam Rose use his mugshot from domestic abuse as a t shirt this year? That's a zero chill tactic.

I went with WWE using Ultimate Warrior's likeness in the Susan G. Komen campaign. Wrong on so many levels.
