Randy Orton and Soulja Boy’s Twitter spat is the most random thing on the internet. Who would’ve believed Randy Orton would get into a verbal sparring with a 2000s rap sensation? Certainly not Pat McAfee. The former NFL athlete and NXT superstar talked about the Apex Predator’s newest and unlikeliest rivalry where he buried yet another person on the internet.

Soulja Boy, the artist who gave us hits like ‘Crank That’ and ‘Kiss Me Thru The Phone’, called WWE fake in a recent tweet. The tweet was, “rap game faker than WWE.” It lit a fire under many WWE superstars and fans, including guys like T-Bar. However, no one got angrier at the rapper’s tweet than Randy Orton.

Orton invited the rapper to come down to the ring and settle their beef once and for all. Soulja Boy responded to Orton saying he’ll bring the ‘real’ into wrestling. Orton fired back hilariously, saying Bad Bunny would take him in the ring.

Pat McAfee comments on the feud

On the Pat McAfee Show, McAfee commented on the Twitter spat between the fourteen-time World Champion and Soulja Boy.

“He buried Soulja Boy last night. Soulja Boy started popping off about how wrestling is fake okay. ‘Rap game faker than WWE’, he said, which I assume a lot of rappers would be like ‘good metaphor there’. But people in the WWE go, ‘no no no no’.”

“Randy Orton pulls out his shovel and buried another person on the internet. This is something he does. Anybody can get it, especially if you potentially ruffle the wrong feathers with Randy Orton. I can understand why the word fake is the way it is though, after getting the chance to get my a** beat in there a couple of times.”

McAfee closed out by saying he understands WWE isn’t a sport, and the results are decided previously, but it isn’t fake. He said, “What is happening in there, even the punches. You’re getting punched in the face, I got kicked in the face; I got punched in the face. Obviously, I signed up for this. But this is just two times I’ve been in there and literally the next week afterwards I can barely walk.”

What do you make of the feud between the wrestler and the rapper?
