WWE teases Patriots fans over coin flip during Divas match

Tuesday December 29th, 2015

Patriots fans hoping to tune in to WWE’s Monday Night Raw to escape from replaying the team’s ill-fated coin flip decision in the heads were out of luck, as the pro wrestling show took a dig at New England during a Divas match.

The show was at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center which did not stop Sasha Banks from repping her Patriots fandom as she prepared to take on Becky Lynch, which led to announcers John Bradshaw Layfield and Michael Cole poking some fun at the reigning Super Bowl champs.
