A lot of people in WWe right now have done comedy matches before. Hell, the IWGP champion wrestled a blow-up doll and a little girl. It's not like anyone would do stuff like this on Raw; it's silly crowd-popping stuff for a smaller, more intimate setting with people who know what they're there for, and the audience likes it. It's all in good fun.
