Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan announced for Crown Jewel, kind of

What just happened?

Scheduled for Miz TV, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan had a very bad then a very awkward segment this week on Raw. In the end Miz, Flair, and Hogan were joined by Jimmy Hart, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, and Rusev.

Overbooked much?

The entire opening beats of the segment featured what sounded like Flair going way off script and The Miz unsuccessfully trying to reel him back in. Flair and Hogan would go on to heavily tease having one more match together and then were somehow inches away from getting physical with each other in the ring.

Flair going rogue and Hogan not sure if he should play along pivoted into The Miz announcing that Team Flair and Team Hogan will battle each other at Crown Jewel on Oct. 31 in Saudi Arabia.

Hogan picked Rollins as his team captain, while Flair seemed surprised when Orton came out and joined his team. Corbin and Rusev would add themselves to Team Flair and Team Hogan respectively.

Don’t really know what to make of that segment, but in the end it was a roundabout way to promote what may be the main event of Crown Jewel.

Was tonight’s (Sept. 30) Miz TV an overblown mess or just WWE doing their best to promote their next Saudi Arabia show?
