Football News

WWE fans are probably fed up of hearing about the bad news surrounding the wrestling company, but brace yourself for some more as we delve into the controversial goings on from the latest WWE Raw. 

A WWE fan that was present at the Monday Night Raw taping in Iowa has revealed how he was threatened by WWE staff and told he was going to be arrested for holding up a WCW Nitro sign.

Threatened by WWE

It is understood that the fan was told to remove a sign that said "Raw is RAGElife," before he was threatened by a 'black male in a suit with a WWE label pin' and told to leave the arena for holding up another sign that said "I'd rather be at home watching Nitro for $9.99."

At one point, the fan even claims that as many as five different men were surrounding him and threatening him.

"After a few minutes I went with them to the vending area where five men in suits surrounded me trying to arrest me for a sign and being someone the WWE didn’t like. I begged them to bring the police so I could be arrested and they wouldn’t bring them," the fan revealed on Reddit.

"After five, maybe ten minutes of the BS I left under my own will because I was tired of the sh*t. F**k WWE, Vince McMahon, and everyone involved. They also took the sign from the person next to me which said Cena it’s time for a heel turn. Incredible."

Terrible timing

The story has caused debate on social media with many fans criticising the WWE. It is a pretty ridiculous story, but one that again shines a bad light on WWE at the worst possible time.

This news comes on the back of many other stories that have highlighted the dysfunctional nature of WWE at the moment.

Vince McMahon revealed earlier this year that the company would need to cut $20 million from its 2014 budget, and as a result a plethora of wrestlers have already been released.

This latest piece of news is just the latest in a longline of ridiculous headlines that the WWE has managed to create.
