Whereas it has caused a real stir among football supporters owing to its inconsistencies, it appears WWE fans want to have it introduced.

A crowd at the Empress Ballroom could be heard chanting ‘VAR’ during the opening bout between Trent Seven and Eddie Dennis.

But speaking at a media conference after the show, Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, confirmed VAR will not be making its way to sports entertainment.

“You’re not going to see any Video Assistant Referees, the only replays we’re going to give you are when you see something crazy and need to see it a second time to believe it happened – like Trent Seven getting ‘Razors Edged’ backwards over the top rope,” the WWE legend declared.

“That’s when we’ll give you a ‘Video Assistant Reminder’ of what just happened,” he added.

The video assistant referee, a match official in association football who reviews decisions made by the head referee was first written into the Laws of the Game by the International Football Association Board a year ago.
