Next month a new pay-per-view is set to air live on the WWE Network, and it has a very peculiar name. The name of the pay-per-view is Great Balls of Fire, and as soon as the name was announced, fans immediately started cracking jokes and making memes for obvious reasons.
The name has been catching a lot of flack from fans, and people can’t seem to stop pointing out the fact that the word “balls” is in the title. You would think that in the PG Era WWE would try their best to avoid creating any marketing materials that could be used in an inappropriate manner, but apparently that’s not the case.
The company recently released a new logo for Great Balls of Fire, which includes, you guessed it, two balls. The two balls in the logo were accompanied by a flame and when you throw them all together the logo strongly resembles male genitalia.
One fan pointed this out to Sasha Banks on Twitter, and they asked her if she thinks it looks like a man’s private parts.

Well, the fan asked a question, and he got an answer.

WWE has since created a new logo for the pay-per-view which doesn’t feature something that could be confused for male genitalia, but once something’s on the internet it never really goes away.
