‘Crown Jewel': WWE Fans Absolutely HATE How That World Cup Tournament Ended

No ”This Is Awesome!“ chants here

WWE held a World Cup Tournament to (as we were constantly reminded) “determine the best in the world” Friday at the “Crown Jewel” pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia. Somehow — and for some reason — “SmackDown Live” General Manager Shane McMahon won the trophy.

If that sounds confusing to readers unable to watch the workday event, it is, because Shane O’Mac wasn’t even booked to wrestle in the tournament. Hell, he’s not even a real wrestler. The son of WWE chairman Vince McMahon subbed himself into the finals vs. “Raw” representative Dolph Ziggler when “SmackDown” finalist The Miz (storyline) injured his leg.

As if that wasn’t a weird enough booking decision, Shane then won the damn match — pretty quickly and easily. WWE fans didn’t dig any of how that played out. Check out some of the choice Twitter reactions below.






Trust us, there was much more negativity where those came from — we’re not even allowed to post the profane ones.

You may have noticed that the WWE Universe isn’t overly thrilled about how the Universal Championship match, the World Cup finale’s lead-in, played out either. Click here to see how that one went down.

“Crown Jewel” is currently winding down on WWE Network.
