24. JBL Tries To Reference The Hunger Games (And Fails)
In the Payback kickoff show, JBL tried to force yet another unnecessary pop culture reference into his commentary shtick as Stardust made his way to the ring. Commenting on his rather...eccentric ring attire, JBL said, " someone from The Hunger Games. Right out of Precinct 13." Cue the Internet having a collective aneurysm at his mistaken remark, because of course, in the movies it's "district", not precinct, and protagonist Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, not 13. Plus, though she wears some pretty crazy outfits throughout the films, none of them really look at all similar to what Stardust's wearing. A lazy and desperate attempt to try and connect with the youngsters. So cringe-worthy.
