The WWE on FOX account wasn’t the only one to take a shot at the fight. WWE Hall of Famer JBL and Raw Superstar T-Bar also didn’t hold back on trolling Mayweather and Logan Paul.

The ‘Wrestling God’ made a bold statement and said he would prefer watching Bob Orton vs Mr. T or Roddy Piper vs Mr. T’s boxing match over this one. And T-Bar asked the world to tune into his 5-Way Tag Team match on Monday Night Raw if they’d like to see men actually hit each other.
