It seems to depend. A lot of times the vet calls, but there are variants. Like if the vet is a guy who knows he's in there with a younger but superior worker and the vet is really limited, he may let the younger guy call it (an example of this would be that Hulk Hogan not only let Jericho call their matches, but according to Chris, would ask what they were doing that night since Hogan knew Chris could make him look good, which is pretty plausible).

I know Ricky Steamboat has said that when he was in the NWA, the heel called it because the heel spends most of the match on control; he actually used that dynamic to explain why he felt Lex Luger was underrated, because he and Luger had a pretty well regarded match that Luger called because he was the heel.

Apparently, some guys are real assholes about insisting on calling, I've heard this about HHH more than once.

With Dean and Seth I'd think Dean would defer to Seth, since Seth seems extremely well regarded by his peers as a worker.

If anyone has any articles or interviews or podcasts or whatever about this kind of stuff, please share them, I find it absolutely fascinating

Does anyone have a sum-up or list of bad Wikipedia discussions for why they stopped listing wrestlerís moves? Itís been over a year I feel like and I still get annoyed when I check out a wrestler I just discovered and itís not there, or if Iím trying to remember what wrestlers used to use

Please, if you're ever going to listen to anything I say, let it be this one time: do not look into this. Do not immerse yourself into Wikipedia rules and decision making. Don't do it, I beg of you. It is a living nightmare.

After a while it mostly stabilized and you had a dynamic where everyone would hate Roman for most of the match, but would still babyface pop for him during the finish, and would immediately go back to boos after the match.

Also during this entire time he was also the second biggest merch seller, so you had this incredibly bizarre dynamic of being the most hated and yet loved in a lot of demographics.

I have several friends whose kids are WWE fans and without exception they all love Roman. I've never asked but I always wonder what they think of all the boos he gets.

And even like one of Becky Lynch's TheMan tweets lately was really "slut shamey" and no one cared because she's a hot act.

Wrestling is kind of a mirror to the overall society though. It's not that wrestling fans were especially homophobic in 2003 - it's that Americans in general were especially homophobic in 2003. Bush won re-election in part because states had anti same sex marriage initiatives on the ballot, driving up turnout of his voters. It was a particularly gross time.

I tried to watch How I Met Your Mother recently and it was extremely grating how often they used "gay" an insult, and that show ended like five years ago.
