Between hosting an absurd two Royal Rumbles in four years here in Philadelphia, the Wells Fargo Center played host to WWE Battleground on Sunday night. And during the Punjabi Prison Match between Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton for the WWE championship (yeah, I have no idea either), there was no mistaking where the event was taking place.
That’s because a loud, prolonged “Trust the Process” chant started in the same arena that the Sixers play their home games:

Mahal ended up heeding the fans’ advice and defeating Orton to retain his title. And Philadelphia again continued to broadcast the TTP message to a worldwide audience.
And if Twitter is to be believed, looks like it’s catching on:

Me: "I'm from Philly, if you know where that is."
Him: "Ah... yes... trust the process."
