#2 Pat McAfee will not be a part of WWE Crown Jewel


SmackDown commentator Pat McAfee revealed on his podcast that WWE had not asked him to be a part of Crown Jewel this month. The event will be taking place in Saudi Arabia on October 21, 2021.

McAfee wished everyone good luck, and also joked about substituting for the announcers held up in Saudi Arabia after their last show in 2020.

''Nope (not invited to Crown Jewel). They're heading over there. I wasn't invited. Good luck. I'm not supposed to be part of that, I'm happy I'm not going or whatever,'' said McAfee.

#1 EC3 wasn't happy with WWE's use of Bray Wyatt


Former WWE Superstar EC3 has said that Bray Wyatt losing to Goldberg in WWE was very upsetting. Goldberg had beaten 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt for the Universal title at last year's Super ShowDown. EC3 said that wrestling "died" for him that day.

Speaking to WrestlingInc, the former 24/7 Champion expressed how sad it was to see a hardworking man like Bray Wyatt lose to a part-time star like Goldberg.

''I’ve watched this man work so hard, and be so unique, and be so creative, and do so many different things, and take it upon himself developing something so special, to have it just thrown away by someone’s decision," said EC3.

WWE released EC3 back in 2020 due to pandemic-related budget cuts. Bray Wyatt was also released in 2021, ending his 11-year tenure.

A prominent name was considered to be one of the best locker room leaders in WWE. Find out who.
