Default Did Bob Roop go too far in breaking that guys arm in the footage shown on WWE 24/7?

Basically, on an edition of Legends of Wrestling Roundtable on WWE 24/7, where there is a panel of several ex-wrestlers/announcers and usually hosted by either Mean Gene Okerlund or Jim Ross, there was footage shown of classic wrestling training, where an old school wrestler named Bob Roop broke a mans arm on camera because he felt that the man had disrespected the business, or wasn't taking the training as serious as he should have. Roop really stretched this guy a few times before he did what looked like actually breaking the mans arm by bending it a certain way. The guy shrieked and rolled out of the ring. Roop said 'so you wanna be a wrestler? I do this sh*t for a living goddammit . Are you gonna tell me now this is easy? Before the guy could answer, Roop went out of the ring and looked like he started chasing the guy before the cameras cut off.

That's basically the detail if you DIDNT see it. If you did, you know what I'm talking about. I've seen some Bob Roop promos and matches on YouTube since watching that. The guy was a no nonsense heel who could wrap you up like a sandwich and hurt you.

Do some trainers (and Roop here) go a little too far by actually breaking peoples bones??

Here is the actual footage

Obviously that rookie didn't take wrestling seriously and probably thought it was all fun and games.

Bob Holly was another trainer was said to have been a little rough with the rookies.
