I’m not really familiar with professional wrestling, so I’ll leave it to you to decide exactly which painful move should be inflicted on the piece of canine fecal matter who did this.

Poester Pez3939 sends in yet another mauling of the DCUC Gotham 5-Pack:

Writes Pez:

DC universe 5 pack with a Batman Movie Master goon and a wrestling chick with furry boots!!!!

The thief deserves to be placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, of course, but at least I understand this one.
