Yes, this is a bait post, much like all the other bait posts that a certain few like to talk about over and over. Now it's my turn. So, why is WWE going to Winnipeg for a live Monday Night Raw taping for the first time in over a decade? You'd think it was because of the crazy winter weather, or the fact that it's, well... Winnipeg. Let me explain.
The "not competition" has two prominent wrestlers in the company that are from Winnipeg. Jericho and Omega, if you really didn't know. So what better way to "kiss and make up" with the city of Winnipeg, than to cater to those same fans that might be watching the "not competition" instead of WWE. They'll remind you of a time when one of the two wrestlers used to be in their company, which I'm sure will be cordial and positive, all to make you forget about the "not competition", in which they currently reside and work. Maybe the "not competition" will run a live TV show of their own in Winnipeg (I sure don't understand why they would) and WWE wants to make it clear, "WE LOVE WINNIPEG!"
Now, don't get me wrong. I'm sure there are many perfect and acceptable reasons as to why this is happening. I just can't put my finger on it though. Hmm.
