Now, I’m sure I’ve made it clear by now that this weekend in WrestleMania weekend, so forgive me if I’m a little per-occupied.
This is my Super Bowl.
But, I didn’t want to drop completely off the face of the earth, so here’s something WrestleMania-related.
This is the Firefly Fun House match from last year’s WrestleMania.
It was a weird event, given that COVID made it happen behind closed doors, in WWE’s training facility in front of an audience of zero people.
And the Firefly Fun House was one of the weirdest things
of that weekend all time.
To quote Homer Simpson: “Brilliant. I have absolutely no idea what’s going on.”
Basically, what’s happening is that evil children’s TV host and bodily vessel of a horrible monster Bray Wyatt is challenging cornerstone of the WWE brand for the past decade-plus John Cena to a match in order to avenge his defeat at Cena’s hands back at WrestleMania 30.
Except the match is occurring inside some sort of ephemeral dreamscape within Cena’s mind, where Wyatt is systematically dismantling Cena’s psyche while deconstructing Cena’s entire career and status as WWE’s major icon.
It, uh, it doesn’t really make any more sense in context.
But give it a watch anyway. It’s one of the most entertainingly bizarre things you will ever witness.
