Because Juice is the only one who knows what he is talking about, he is normally our go-to WWE writer. But, hat doesn’t mean I can’t have a hot take or two. And boy, is this one a scorcher. There is going to be a real, unscheduled fight at Crown Jewel today. The WWE is in desperate need of some good press. Recently, they have been under fire for insisting on having the Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia despite the recent tensions between our two countries. There has also been some backlash from WWE “fans” that actually think Roman Reigns is faking Leukemia and it is all a rouse created by Vince McMahon. Even the all female Evolution PPV could not get the media off their back. It even overshadowed the event. They need some good press and they need it quick. So, what has been getting good press lately? That’s right, fights.
In the last month, there have been extracurricular fights in both the NBA and UFC. Khabib fought Conor McGregor’s friends and there was a brawl between Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo then 30 seconds later, Brandon Ingram. UFC and NBA were praised for their handling of the two situations. I think Vince McMahon is going to capitalize on this. He is going to plant someone in the audience and one of two things are going to happen.
The planted person will say something to Seth Rollins during one of his events. The “fan” is going to be talking some kind of smack about Roman Reigns and Rollins will pounce. McMahon is going to suspend him, but will ultimately be passed off as Seth Rollins defending his friend or The Shield.
There is obviously already people in the Saudi audience that have a problem with the US. One of those people will be on the WWE payroll though. He will be right outside the ring and will say the wrong thing to someone like AJ Styles. Of course, he will have to defend his country in the name of patriotism. Both scenarios give Vince McMahon the perfect opportunity to punish a responsible party and get some serious respect for the WWE.
