The Firefly Fun House match seems to be the most talked-about match from this year’s WWE WrestleMania pay-per-view and for good reason because it was unlike anything ever seen on a WWE program.
When the segment was edited and Vince McMahon saw it, I’m told he loved it and the “It’s good sh*t” line was approved by him when it was suggested. For those of you that don’t know, that line came from the Talk Is Jericho podcast when AEW Champion Jon Moxley was on last year to talk about his experience with Vince McMahon and his crazy creative ideas. The “it’s good sh*t” line would be the inspiration for memes on social media.
The Firefly Fun House segment was produced by the WWE crew in Stamford, CT and the props used came from the warehouse near the company headquarters. I was told that while others had ideas, a lot of the creative input came from Wyatt. The Boneyard Match was produced by the NXT crew in Orlando, Florida.
There is already talk of doing more cinematic types of matches like this and Triple H said as much during an interview earlier this weekend.
Since it may be several months or more until large gatherings are allowed again, WWE may have to continue with creative ways to fill their shows. At the earliest, Donald Trump believes that fans will be allowed back into stadiums and arenas by August or September, which means that we may see more cinematic matches inserted into pay-per-views until things get back to normal.
