I'm not so sure WWE security would've been too keen on the idea were he to follow through ...

    What’s going on everyone? I just wanted to give you the run down on my WWE experience. Me, a few teammates, friends and my brother went to see Monday Night Raw at the Ford Center the other day…I’ve practically been living at the Ford Center the last few days.

    This was my first time to see WWE, although I used to watch it a lot when I was young. I was very intrigued by it. To get the opportunity to go watch it in person was a lot of fun. You could tell it’s changed a lot since a couple years back when I was younger.

    It’s intense, man. It’s a rush. Me and the guys got into it so that made it even better.

    Some of my favorite moments were seeing Triple H and Shawn Michaels, the D-generation X when I was young. That was fun to see. Most of the guys that were there when I was young are still there – Undertaker, Triple H, Brett Hart, The Big Show, Mark Henry, Vince McMahon. Everyone was still there. I wanna go to Wrestlemania now!

    Obviously, it’s way different seeing it in person than on TV. First off, it’s loud. They’ve got a lot of stuff going on and it was sold out. When they throw each other against the mats, that’s loud. When they’re slapping each other, that’s loud. Everything was just loud.

    I know some of the stuff is predetermined or practiced, but the allure for me was just the moves the wrestlers can execute. Those aren’t easy. Moves like the figure four and the pedigree and the choke slams that you play on video games when you’re younger, to see them come out of nowhere and do their signature moves was way cool and I can’t tell you how glad I am to have had the opportunity to watch it. I wasn’t going to go at first but I’m glad I did.

    And no lie, I was thinking about going onstage if the Undertaker came out. He showed up on the big screen, and you know when the Undertaker comes out everything goes black for a while. I was right by the ring so I was going to jump over the rail and jump in the ring and by the time they put the lights on I was going to be up there right beside the Undertaker. I was just going to do it spur of the moment! I was going to have fun with it. But he didn’t come out, so it never happened.

    So did you guys watch Monday Night Raw? Ever been to a WWE event? I just want to know if you all had a similar experience like mine. Let me know!

I guess if you were going to run into the ring it would be that moment when everything goes black.
That would be hilarious- the lights come on and standing in the ring is The Undertaker and.....some random dude.

Given where this show took place, I doubt he would have been received by the audience as just "some random dude." Now, by WWE security on the other hand...

Yeah, that's one of the best ways I know of to get your butt kicked.

This would have been just more P.R.(ESPN,TMZ) for Vince . Vince loves P.R. So Durant probably would have gotten a free pass if he had followed through.

The question is, would WWE's security team have been savvy enough to recognize "Hey, that's Kevin Durant" rather than "Hey, there's some guy in the ring, rush him!" ? Since it would be pretty poor pub for WWE if the story was about the security team beating the crap out of an NBA star in his home city. WWE would never be able to run Oklahoma City again.

Or Undertaker himself. I remember Eddie Guerrero throwing a punch at a fan who came into the ring.

That's the big issue. I doubt Taker watches much NBA. Security would probably recognize him after an initial jumping.

And even if Taker DOES follow the NBA, I doubt his first thought after being completely surprised by a giant man suddenly standing next to him in the ring when the lights came up would be, "awesome, Kevin Durant!" I think that might be one of those "shoot and ask questions later" situations.

I always thought it was a flat yearly salary, but Jericho's book makes it sould like Vince just randomly tosses out money for each show.
