Former WWE Name Criticizes ‘Goofy’ WWE Event

Former WWE Name Criticizes ‘Goofy’ WWE Event WWE

WWE may have declared WWE Crown Jewel as the “most-viewed international PLE in company history”, but it hasn’t been viewed by one particular former WWE name.

Speaking on his Wrestling With Freddie podcast, former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr said:

“I say the following with pride; I did not watch a single minute of the Crown Jewel, and my life is so much better for it.”

His reasoning had nothing to do with the actual premium live event, but to do with the show itself, with Prinze Jr explaining:

“Even if it was great, I do not believe in it.

“I think it is a goofy pay-per-view.”

Prinze Jr previously expressed his dissatisfaction over the story leading up to the show’s main event between Roman Reigns and Logan Paul.

In an earlier episode of his podcast, he had explained that:

“Even though I like (Logan), he’s done well.

“But this is not good booking, this is just promotional booking to get YouTube fans to watch pro wrestling.”

WWE Crown Jewel may have been a success for WWE, but recently obtained numbers have revealed that it had the lowest numbers for a WWE pay-per-view ever, which isn’t massively significant in today’s landscape, but is an interesting note nonetheless.
