While listening to the latest episode of E & C’s Pod of Awesomeness, I could not help but appreciate Edge’s take on the name of the WWE pay-per-view event this weekend, Great Balls of Fire:
“Before we go any further for how stoked I am for Joe vs. Brock, I gotta mention again this pay-per-view name is just brutal. I mean, come on. It’s a great song, I’m a fan of Jerry Lee Lewis, I appreciate everything he did, dancing on pianos, setting them on fire, he was a trendsetter, he was a groundbreaker; that song was from the 50s, I don’t know if it needs to be the name of a pay-per-view. I picture just flaming testicles now when I hear that. And then when you see the logo for it it just looks like flaming testicles.”
He continued to say he loves the classic look they gave to the promos, with a full dive in the 50’s, but it’s a horrible name for a show. I do not know if we should feel better or worse because it probably only exists because it makes Vince McMahon laugh.
