Reporter photographed watching Extreme Rules PPV during NBA finals; trolled by fans

Reporter caught watching Extreme Rules during NBA Finals.

A reporter at the recent NBA Finals was apparently photographed watching WWE’s Extreme Rules PPV whilst covering the basketball event.

WWE Extreme Rules took place at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland on June 4th.

The professional wrestling pay-per-view went up against the NBA Finals’ Game 2 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.

A photo of the reporter covering the aforementioned basketball match has gone viral with pro-wrestling and basketball fans trolling the man.

The reporter in question can be seen photographed from behind-

The reporter mustn't have had the slightest inkling that a photo featuring him would become a viral hit.

Down 1-0 in the NBA Finals, defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers walked into the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., losing Game 2 to the Golden State Warriors 113-132.

Several basketball fans on the interwebs have panned this Sunday’s match between the Cavs and the Warriors, which was in direct contrast with WWE’s Extreme Rules PPV that featured several high-octane matchups.

The WWE event was capped off by a stunning victory by Samoa Joe, who defeated Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt in their Fatal 5-Way Extreme Rules match.

Joe ended the fight via submission, applying the Coquina Clutch on Finn Balor and putting the Demon King to sleep.

Samoa Joe will now go on to face Brock Lesnar at the upcoming WWE RAW brand-exclusive PPV Great Balls of Fire on July 9th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Honestly, we, as professional wrestling fans, have to ask ourselves- Can we really fault the basketball reporter? The match between the Cavs and Warriors wasn’t the greatest, to say the least, and when it comes to sports-entertainment, no one beats WWE.

After all, we always do What’s Best For Business!

    This is funny as hell. Pretty sure that’s Paul Chambers from KTVU who is known to a huge WWE fan back here in the Bay Area. Decent guy to talk wrestling with. Hope he doesn’t get too much “heat” from this.

    I was being facetious…..

    the big deal is he’s a basketball reporter at the NBA Finals, he’s there to cover game 2, not Extreme Rules. that’s the big deal.

    he’s gonna lose his job for that cause in the journalism world, this would be consider unprofessional.

    Nobody calls a basketball game a “match”.
