Backstage Latest On The “Tater Tots” Promo From Roman Reigns & Sheamus On Monday’s WWE RAW

– Last Monday’s WWE RAW main event segment with Roman Reigns and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus drew a lot of criticism from fans and people in the business as it went on forever and didn’t really accomplish much.

The “I thought the Irish had potatoes but you’re smuggling tater tots” line from Reigns has been the butt of many jokes this week but WWE actually wanted the fans to chant tater tots, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

If you can believe it, and this is very telling of the state of WWE creative right now, the idea was to use the long promo to build to the line from Reigns so that fans would chant “tater tots” at Sheamus.
