The ‘supernatural forces’ of Alexa Bliss and Bray Wyatt might be bothering Randy Orton inside the squared circle, but it does not stop him from defending WWE. Orton recently went up against rapper Soulja Boy on Twitter.

On February 27, Soulja Boy said some pretty nasty things about wrestling as he called WWE “fake.” He addressed, “Rap game faker than WWE,” to his fellow rappers.

Although the matter did not get much attention then, it blew up after Retribution member T-Bar retweeted it and said, “Does the rap game take years off your life and leave you with countless injuries and debilitating pain? Oh well, maybe just stick to super soaking h*** or whatever it is you did 15 years ago.”

From this, it caught the attention of “The Viper“, and he went off. Fans know that wrestling storylines and results are pre-determined. However, it never takes away the athleticism, immense strength, and life-threatening injuries of wrestlers.

Orton, a third-generation wrestler himself, disapproved of Soulja Boy’s words. He went off and said, “Fake? Dare this prick to step up. 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. Ain’t nothin’ but a bitch a**…”

Randy Orton and Soulja Boy got into a verbal spat

While Orton went off, Soulja Boy was also not dwelling in silence. The two superstars then went off on each other in a fired-up verbal spat. Orton even called Soulja a “one-hit-wonder.”

‘Crank that’ (Soulja’s song) came out in ‘07 you had a hell of a year. Serious $. Hats off to ya my dude.”

Orton clarified and said he loves rappers, but when someone disrespects his profession, he is not going to tolerate it.

“Here’s the thing, tho… I like rap. I bump that s*** all day whether it’s tunechi, meek, JZ… but you call what I do to survive, fake? F*** that. Come to my world and say that. Dare ya.”

Soulja Boy replied, “If you mad because I spit facts, just say that. What you do is FAKE and I stand on that. What I do is REAL. Come to your world? Lol welcome to Soulja World.”

The spat apparently ended with Orton asking Soulja to come to WWE and ‘walk the talk.’ Soulja Boy laughed it off to end it (as of now).

While Soulja Boy might be a huge name in the music industry, he does not stand a chance against Orton inside the ring. Orton is an industry veteran with a career spanning over two decades.

Orton’s grandfather, father, and uncle were all wrestlers, and he himself is a 14-time World Champion. Although he is currently tackling Alexa Bliss and Bray Wyatt, Orton seems to be more than happy to put Soulja Boy in his place.

Do you think Soulja Boy would actually come to WWE to fight the Viper? Let us know in the comments below.
