Report: WWE Receive "Nice Payday" For Survivor Series Egg Storyline
Who stole the egg?!
While The Rock may not have been at Survivor Series last night, The Brahma Bull's new movie 'Red Notice' was all over the pay-per-view. The show was sponsored by the movie featuring The Rock, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot and a storyline of Vince McMahon being gifted one of Cleopatra's eggs played out throughout the night.
The WWE chairman showed off the egg to Superstars during the pay-per-view until he realised it had been stolen, a storyline that is expected to be resolved on tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw with the entire WWE roster present.
As many assumed, Mike Johnson of PWInsider has confirmed the egg storyline was part of a paid promotional partnership with Netflix to promote 'Red Notice.' WWE also pocketed "quite a nice payday" from the deal.
That wasn't WWE's only paid partnership at Survivor Series as the company used the 25-man Dual Brand Battle Royal to promote Pizza Hut, including having Montez Ford throw pizza slices into the crowd.
It has been an odd year of WWE paid partnerships and the company even aired a Zombie Lumberjack Match on pay-per-view earlier this year to promote the Netflix movie 'Army Of The Dead.' WWE pocketed over $1 million from having the zombies on the show.
