Backstage News on Patrick Mahomes’ WWE RAW Segment

NFL's Patrick Mahomes Appears On 4/29 WWE RAW

Backstage News on Patrick Mahomes’ WWE RAW Segment – The 4/29 episode of WWE Raw took place in Kansas City where Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was greeted by United States Champion Logan Paul, leading Paul to do a segment with the NFL star.

It all started when they arrived at the building together with IShowSpeed. Paul asked for Mahomes to be introduced, leading to him getting cheers. Paul then took some of the Super Bowl rings that Mahomes had and tried to lay out Jey Uso, only to hit JD McDonaugh instead. This led to a returning Braun Strowman coming out to chase off the heels. Strowman later exchanged words with Mahomes at ringside.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted Mahomes was used more than a regular celebrity sitting at ringside for an actual segment because of a sponsorship arrangement as Mahomes is sponsored by Paul’s Prime hydration drink, also a sponsor of WWE.

“There’s actually a reason for all this, which I’ll get to in a second. But when the show started, it was Patrick Mahomes, IShowSpeed, and Logan Paul coming to the building together. He is the biggest star in that city as a babyface, and he’s coming out with heels. Some people were bringing up that this makes no sense because Patrick Mahomes was a total heel on the show, even though he’s a babyface. The reason behind it was because WWE did not book this segment. It was a sponsored segment, that’s why Patrick Mahomes was there because Patrick Mahomes is part of the Prime energy drink that Logan Paul is also a part of. So they basically sponsored the segment and they wanted Logan Paul and Patrick Mahomes to work together in an angle. Everyone’s going, ‘Why would Patrick Mahomes be booked as a heel in Kansas City? WWE is so incredibly stupid.’ But in fact, it was not WWE that was stupid. It was something that the sponsors basically put together.”

As far as the segment with Strowman, while WWE teased something that may happen with the NFL star and Strowman, they didn’t have a way out, so Strowman just backed off. All planned of course.

“So the idea is that Braun was going to attack Mahomes, which would have turned him heel instantly, but Jey pulled them away because they had no way out of the segment.”
