Soulja Boy sparks feud with WWE stars for calling pro wrestling ‘fake’
The rapper has found himself at the center of an unexpected feud after calling professional wrestling “fake,” drawing the ire of such WWE stars as T-Bar and Randy Orton. In a tweet on Saturday, Soulja Boy wrote, “Rap game faker than WWE,” which soon received pushback from wrestlers and wrestling fans.
“Fake? Dare this prick to step up,” Orton, whose grandfather, father, and uncle were also professional wrestlers, wrote in response Monday night. “He don’t like movies? Consider us actors that do stunts, without pads 200 days a year and don’t bitch when we get surgically repaired and come right back. Consider us 100 times tougher [than] anyone you’ve come across.”
