[Sun] - NON-LEAGUE Enfield Town have signed a 'first-of-its-kind' sponsorship deal with WWE series NXT UK.
The Isthmian League Premier Division are used to taking on heavyweights such as Bognor Regis and East Thurrock, but will now do so with the wrestling company's logo on their shirt.
Welp, looks like I need to add a soccer jersey to my collection here. Do I care that it's a seventh-league team? Hell no. They are in the Istmian Premier Division, which is the second most premier soccer premier division in the world. All I know is I need WWE to go full out here. Sign Sting away from AEW and just let him hang out in the rafters watching matches and striking fear into anyone who walks by. Yeah, I know that's more WCW, but Sting was in WWE too. Use Ric Flair's WOOO for goals. Have Stone Cold handing out beers. Bring back Trish Stratus, Kelly Kelly, Sable and Stacy Kiebler for no real reason.
And obviously we need JR and Jerry Lawler to take over the announcing. Imagine JR losing his shit with the perfect slide tackle? It'd be amazing.
More importantly can we get Enfield Town vs Wrexham - the team that's owned by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenny. That would be one of the most watched soccer games in the world if they promoted it right. But back to Enfield Town and WWE. I'm trying to think who would be the best/most hilarious soccer team that the WWE could put together throughout its history. Mostly just thinking of The Attitude Era, because that's the best era. I could see HBK being a good striker with his kicking ability. HHH would be a fullback for sure. Jericho could be a central mid. Give me Randy Orton on the wing. Stone Cold clearly as a goalie with his hands.
And now, obligatory theme song that Enfield Town needs to play when they come on the field.
