Wrestler rips Philadelphians, Gritty and Carson Wentz at Wells Fargo Center

Wrestler rips Philadelphians, Gritty and Carson Wentz at Wells Fargo Center

If RAW is WAR, then this is certainly war.

Last night, the Wells Fargo Center welcomed the WWE for another night of Monday Night Raw, where Elias, one of the biggest heels in the game, went after Philadelphians and took a shot at Gritty during his Walk With Elias concert tour.

Here’s what he said.

He begins with a story about going to lunch with Carson Wentz and saying that our QB doesn’t truly care about the people in this city. He goes on to liken the appearance of Philadelphians to Gritty, the beautiful new Flyers mascot.

There’s something to be said, however, for how Elias plays the heel role and sits in front of tens of thousands of fans and makes fun of them. That takes some guts. However, you have got to leave Gritty out of this. Hasn’t he been through enough? Plus, how are you going to make fun of the guy while sitting inside his house?

That’s a bold move, Elias. Here’s hoping that Gritty is cooking up an epic response right now.

Update: Gritty responded.

These Tide commercials are making people feel some type of way

If you’re watching the Eagles game and thinking these Tide ads are horrible, you’re not alone.

If you haven’t seen it, here you go.

Here’s what people are saying.

But, hey, there’s no such thing as bad publicity, right?

Eagles fans erupt after Michael Bennett gets flagged for hitting Kirk Cousins

Eagles fans erupt after Michael Bennett gets flagged for hitting Kirk Cousins

These are the kinds of moments that aren’t helping the NFL and its TV ratings.

Michael Bennett gets blocked into Kirk Cousins' thighs, doing everything he possibly can to avoid his knees and seriously injure the quarterback and he is flagged for a 15-yard penalty, awarding an automatic first down.

With the way Dan Bailey has been kicking Sunday, this is either a seven- or- four-point swing and it could end up meaning the game.

The fans in Philly are not happy about it either.

They’re not thrilled online, either.

According to veteran NFL referee Terry McAulay, it shouldn’t have been called.

I’m all for player safety, but a play like that, which is important enough to sway the outcome of the game, the season, has to be made properly. If that means allowing a coach to challenge these types of penalties, I would support that.

Ever since the NFL enacted more strict rules in relation to hitting quarterbacks, the problem is not just down to this play, this moment, it’s a league-wide issue that has to be resolved or else people will begin to lose interest.
