The arrival of ‘famous’ wrestler Bear Wolf at The Woolpack in Emmerdale has infuriated viewers as much as the angry face on Paddy Kirk’s face.
There had been thoughts that he may be Paddy’s long lost father but the ‘meet and greet’ at the village pub has gone down as well as a pint of warm lager, as viewers reach for the off button.
It may have seemed that the villagers had become the wrestling fans that they’d never shown before but there was there was a unanimous verdict among viewers that the Bear Wolf storyline should be binned.
The condemnation came in thick and fast on Twitter , with one viewers tweeting: "What a silly storyline this Bear wolf crap is!!! #Emmerdale"
Another soap fan wrote: "Apparently all the villagers are wrestling fans now. This is complete drivel #Emmerdale"
While a third questioned: "Who exactly is this Bear Wolf storyline appealing to? #Emmerdale"
The soap’s writers were told to go back to the drawing board by another fan of the ITV soap: "I’ve seen some stupid storylines on soaps, but this bear wolf thing takes the cake #pathetic #Emmerdale"
After Paddy finally confronted the wrestler about whether he was his dad, he was given short change.
The reaction online wouldn’t have pleased him either as there was an overwhelming view that the scenes had been "boring" and fans felt, "completely unaffected".
Whether this is just the end of Paddy’s search for his real father remains to be seen but it would seem that viewers sincerely hope it’s a dead end as it would be ‘too much to bear’.
