Crown Jewel an “Epic Case of Tone Deafness”
A large chunk of a new Sports Illustrated “Extra Mustard” segment, from columnist Jimmy Traina, is dedicated to questioning the decision made by Vince McMahon to not only go ahead with his WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, but to have the even more controversial Hulk Hogan act as “host” for the event.
“Extra Mustard” is where most wrestling-related things covered in SI land, including interviews with superstars from all around the world, WWE notwithstanding. This new column calls the move to include Hogan “an epic case of tone deafness”, including the blatantly racist comments he once made in a leaked sex tape. Check out the column in the link above.
