WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was a hit and the WWE Universe couldn’t agree more. The show had everything from gripping matches to emotional matches where we saw Xavier Woods and Zelina Vega becoming the ‘King’ and the ‘Queen’ of the WWE. However, one more thing happened last night, The Undertaker introduced the rapper, Pitbull, in Saudi Arabia.

Renee Paquette thinks The Undertaker was not suitable for the job

In an appearance on ‘Busted Open Radio‘, the former WWE broadcaster revealed that she did not enjoy seeing The Phenom doing such jolly things as introducing a celebrity.

“I just feel it should’ve been somebody else introducing him. I feel like seeing the Undertaker, in the big black hat, in full Undertaker gear, introducing ‘the 305, the Grammy Award-Winning artist.’ Bringing on Pitbull that way, feel it could’ve been somebody else.”

“I don’t know what the full crew is that is in Saudi Arabia right now, but I feel like maybe somebody else could’ve been better for that job.” Paquette said. [h/t: WreslingInc]

However, she confessed that it’s not that ‘Taker did a poor job, she just wanted someone who is a more “happy-to-go-lucky” personality and is somewhat of a babyface to step up.

No matter what she says, the WWE Universe really liked the idea of seeing The Undertaker taking some time off his “dark arts” and making an announcement for a celebrity.
