WWE had a minor presence on Jeopardy yesterday.
On Thursday's episode of Jeopardy, a question regarding WWE was asked: "The first 'W' in WWE, where Kofi Kingston & No Way Jose wrestle with issues." The clip of the question can be seen below.
The question is already outdated, given that No Way Jose no longer wrestles with WWE. No Way Jose was released by WWE on April 15. Previously, No Way Jose said he wasn't a fan of the name he was given during his time in WWE.
“The name itself, ha. I don’t know how the hell it happened, they were like 'what do you think of No Way Jose,' and I was like 'no.' I thought it was a catchphrase, and I was like 'oh cool'… they saw something in film and somehow it came up… [Matt] Bloom was like “what if you want it as a name?”, and I was like 'no way.' Then a writer came up to me and was like 'why?' and I was like 'it will pigeonhole me, there is a ceiling,' all the real stuff in terms of business. Nobody goes in there and says they want to be a No Way Jose probably, they want to be, for me it was The Rock when I saw The Rock I wanted to be The Rock… We went into Full Sail and I’m walking in and you shake everyone’s hand and Triple H is right there talking to Eva Marie or someone, I’m like 'hey, sir, how you doing?' And he’s like 'No Way, what’s going on?' In my head I’m like 's***, is that a thing?' And he goes 'got it approved today, what do you think?' And I said 'I love it, let’s go,'" No Way Jose said.
For those curious, the person who was asked the question got the answer right.
