5 Most Insane Things Happening In Wrestling Right Now (Nov 9)

In which The Undertaker isn’t the only dead man WWE ruthlessly exploited this week.


It's been seven days since WWE promoted Crown Jewel from...Crown Jewel, which acted as WWE's weird synonym for "that country everybody is giving us sh*t for running".

That's effectively what Hulk Hogan said in his capacity as Guest Host: "The power of Hulkamania, and the power of my Hulkamaniacs is stronger than ever, right here at the Crown Jewel, Jack!" Notably, he didn't say "Jill", for there was no Jill, Ronda, Sasha, Becky, or Alicia at the show. The Crown Jewel of WWE isn't a Ruby. Feigning enthusiasm, Corey Graves remarked that "This man is the inspiration for so many of us in the sports entertainment industry".

Who, your brother?

Hogan cut a short, generic promo. This was expected in a 'Guest Host' role that is essentially as redundant as that of a road agent. The expected propaganda didn't materialise; WWE removed their fingers from tone-deaf ears, and wisely elected not to celebrate the Saudi Kingdom in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi's murder. But, just before the company could listen to its audience, and produce results they actually wanted, those fingers were plugged back in.

You're bored of Brock Lesnar as Universal Champion? You think the Super Show-Down main event went far too long?

You think CM Punk is the Best In The World...?
