In an alternate timeline, Justin Bieber wrestled in a WWE main event

Last week, one of the strangest stories in wrestling came out on former WWE writer Kevin Eck’s website. It seems in 2014, work was done to possibly book Justin Beiber for the SummerSlam main event.

WWE's resident Beiber fan Ricardo Rodriguez was sadly not involved.

According to Eck, Bieber would come in as a wrestling wannabe and friend of John Cena. This would set up a three on three tag team match as Bieber would team with Cena and the Big Show. (Is there some requirement Show gets every celebrity crossover match?) Their foes would have been the Wyatt Family in an extension of the then feud between Cena and Wyatt.

Of course, any rational fan would guess this would instantly turn the Wyatts face as they take on the mixed reactions to Cena and what would almost certainly be absolute hate for Bieber. Eck’s solution follows the Steve Austin Formula: have Cena lay out the increasingly annoying Bieber post match.

Thankfully none of this ever came to fruition in our quantum dimension, but somewhere out there is a world where Bieber snuck a win at Wrestlemania 31 to become WWE champion. Definitely makes Roman Reigns look a lot better, doesn’t it?
