Without snark, I honestly believe the career mode changes with backstage free-roaming and the like could fix it. They have the multiplayer career end-game which likely will be a shitty grind, but I'm hoping by adding that,t hey remove the grind from the normal career and just make it a 10-20 hour thing or whatever.
Jericho said in the same podcast that when Shane was tagged in at Survivor Series he's like a ball of energy and just does everything fast, so he hit a couple of punches on him, then that back elbow hit Jericho pretty square and it hurt, so Jericho put him on the mat hard and told him to slow it down.
Weirdly, the crowd pops for it when he starts them though. Even if it does look bad, they probably just think "Well this half-filled arena is into it so I'll keep doing it".
