In the first ever Great Balls of Fire PPV introduced by the WWE, the matches on offer are nothing short of spectacular which makes the company’s intentions of proving that the PPV stands true to its name. The special event, comprising Raw superstars, features Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in an Ambulance Match, Cesaro & Sheamus vs. The Hardy Boyz in a 30-Minute WWE Iron Man Match for the Tag Team Championship, and Brock Lesnar’s defends his Universal Championship title against Samoa Joe.
WWE Superstar Edge reckoned that it might as well be called “Flaming Testicles”. “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 said in a podcast. But the real reason for the name? WWE CEO Vince McMahon found it funny. Or just the second word. WWE Raw General Manager Kurt Angle told The Dallas Observor, “That’s a pretty incredible name for a wrestling show, isn’t it? The head honcho Vince McMahon thought that the name was hilarious, and that’s pretty much the entire story.”
