Everyone agrees that what goes on inside the ring is a script, but they need an enormous effort from the wrestlers to make it entertaining. In fact, all the injuries that wrestlers sustain from their matches speak volumes about what’s needed to make wrestling entertaining.

Since this is the first time something like this is happening, the WWE Universe doesn’t know whether WWE scripted this or it is actually happening. If it’s scripted, Soulja Boy will make a WWE appearance soon. If it’s not, then the last of this feud will remain completely on the internet.

A second reason this is possibly a script is because Bow Wow is showing support to Soulja Boy. He made it appear like it was rappers vs. wrestlers. Considering Bow Wow wanted to join WWE, it’s possible that this beef is scripted. Hence, the WWE Universe will witness two more rappers joining.

Apart from Randy Orton and Soulja Boy, WWE has Bad Bunny and Damian Priest

The most recent rapper to join WWE is Bad Bunny. He got involved in a storyline with John Morrison and The Miz, while having Damian Priest by his side. In fact, Priest made his Raw debut soon after Bad Bunny’s.

Damian Priest has been protecting Bad Bunny from The Miz and John Morrison. It is possible the four of them will be a part of a tag team match once the rapper finishes his training at WWE PC.

However, sometimes pro-wrestlers don’t welcome the idea of rappers joining WWE. Nevertheless, the company will back down from on-boarding rappers because of the millions of fans they have globally. This helps the company constantly grow and reach out to a larger audience.

Moreover, the chances of scripted controversies increase by leaps and bounds when a pro-wrestler is booked against a rapper. These controversies ultimately help in reeling in the audience every week.
