What’s so wrong with Abadon? Well, for starters, fans don’t appreciate wrestlers not selling their finishers and high-profile spots that would leave most wrestlers writhing in pain. Abadon’s entire framework makes her an all-powerful creature from hell, who does not share the same anatomy as her compeers.
