One of the most anticipated matches of the night was unquestionably WWE Champion Drew McIntyre taking on Randy Orton, but before it kicked off WWE launched a stellar promo package to get fans hyped. During that time they also had Shawn Michaels chime in via a Zoom video about who he was rooting for, though it wasn't what he said that had fans talking. He was very much in McIntyre's corner, but most were talking about his Zoom background, which was incredibly random and had people trying to figure out what they were going for.
The walls of the room behind him were a dark red, and the only pieces of furniture in the room were a slim dresser with drawers, and on top of that piece was an antique cash register and a globe.
If that sounds random, well, it was, especially since nothing else was in the room. Fans starting giving their best guesses about the items and some of their reactions were priceless, and we've included some of our favorites below.
