Freddie Prinze Jr. Confirms WWE Forgot To Cut Stream On Recent Show

While many expected Roman Reigns’ victory over Drew McIntyre to retain the undisputed WWE Universal Championship in last Saturday’s Clash at the Castle, few thought the fight would have a musical postscript with British boxing champion Tyson Fury serenading Scottish McIntyre with Don McLean’s song “American Pie”.

But according to actor and former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. on his Spotify podcast “Fight with Freddie, “Fury’s vocalization – which covered the first verse of the classic tune followed by a chant along with the Cardiff audience – was not meant to be part of the show.” The end of the match was bizarre because they forgot to say cut,” Prinze said. “I know that for a fact — I asked a few people. They let the flow work and all of a sudden Drew McIntyre felt good, Tyson Fury came out in the ring and they sang “Sweet Caroline” after a loss. It was so weird.”

Podcast co-host Jeff Dye ignored Prinze’s misidentification of Fury’s song, but shared his feelings on the unlikely conclusion. “It felt like a weird house show,” Dye said. “It was so cheesy and so stupid. And it made Fury and McIntyre weird and unusual after a big loss like that.” As for the song itself, it wasn’t the first time Fury had performed McLean’s song at the end of a fight – back in April at Wembley Stadium in London, he burst into “American Pie” after his sixth round TKO of Dillian Whyte.
