WWE Drop Multiple Megadeth Puns During “Symphony Of Destruction” Match On “Raw”

Last night’s (March 5) episode of “WWE Raw” featured a “Symphony Of Destruction” match between Elias and Braun Strowman. It was essentially a street fight with musical instruments as weapons, but due to the name, announcers and participants decided to throw out a bunch of Megadeth puns. Those included Strowman saying the following during a promo: “I know you’re sweating bullets, because tonight, you find out about my symphony of destruction. Tonight starts the countdown to your extinction.” Commentator Corey Graves also threw some in during the match:

“Strowman wants to settle the score, but… peace sells, but who’s buying?”
“This could be reckoning day for Elias at the hands of Braun Strowman.”
“Like a runaway train… A train of consequences.”
“I think we’re about to witness Elias rust in peace.”
“Pain is Braun’s business and business is good in Milwaukee.”

Graves then finished by saying “If I don’t at least get free Megadeth tickets after that, I never will.”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Says Metallica Are The Hold Outs For More Big Four Shows, Suggests Doing Big Three Shows

Considering the fact that Slayer will be retiring soon, Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine has said he would like to do at least one more Big Four show with Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax before that happens. Now, during a recent interview with Eddie Trunk, Mustaine talked more about that idea, and the possibility of doing Big Three shows without Metallica, since they seem to be the hold outs.

Mustaine said the following:

“I think if you asked the three of us that, our camps would probably say yes. If Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth all want to do it, and Metallica doesn’t, then what do we do? The Big Three? I’m sure that a lot of people would like to see that, and that may be what it is. You know, you may end up having it be the Big Three plus No. 5 if we have Exodus play with it.

But it’s not about just doing concerts for the sake of concerts. It was about the movement. It was about what we did together as a group.

Excluding Anthrax, we’re all like neighbors almost ’cause we all lived so close. It was just a half hour to an hour at at most between each other’s houses on the freeway. So, I think it would be great to do more Big Four stuff—do one in Japan. Do one in South America—we never did one in South America; we haven’t done one in Asia. Give the people an opportunity to see it before it goes away forever.”

On another note, it looks like Scott Ian (Anthrax) would like to do some shows as well:
