So most of WWE fandom is in agreement that "Great Balls of Fire" is a galactically stupid name for a pay-per-view.
I made all of the jokes there are to make about the name back when they announced the thing, then made all of the the jokes there are to make about the logo when the revealed it, then when they revealed the other less cocky but just as ballsy logo, too.
But now, to hammer that point home on this the day of the show, y'all, it's WWE Hall of Famer, The Rated-R Superstar himself, Edge. Speaking on his podcast, The Edge & Christian Pod of Awesomeness, he talked about how despite the fact that the event has a fantastic lineup, with a card chockablock full of great matches, all he can picture is a man's groin set ablaze.
"Before we go any further for how stoked I am for Joe vs. Brock, I've 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; (but) 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."
