Orton retaliated by saying that even if WWE is scripted, some fights enter the realm of brutality. In such cases, not only do Superstars end up hurting themselves, but also need to take a break for proper recovery.

To back up his previous claim, ‘The Viper’ used a picture of Drew McIntyre and Sheamus following their match on Monday Night Raw: March 8th, 2021.

WWE ruled the match as ‘No Contest’ after McIntyre and Sheamus collided with steel steps and were knocked out, and the referee deemed that both of them needed medical attention.

Orton used the pictures to call out Soulja Boy on Twitter to ask him if this was fake. Furthermore, he claimed that if someone thinks it is fake they should pay for the medical treatment.

Most people sided with Orton and accepted that scripted fights don’t mean fake fights. The moves, the impacts, and the injuries are as real as it gets.

In fact, several Superstars came out to support Randy Orton in his altercation with Soulja Boy.

A popular prediction is that the altercation was staged before Soulja Boy made his debut in WWE. Another rapper, Bad Bunny, has already debuted, and now it’s possible another rapper is on his way.

WWE might create an angle where the company puts Superstars vs. Rappers.

Apart from Randy Orton, Jey Uso spoke about Soulja Boy taking a shot at wrestling. Uso believes that disrespecting how one earns their bread is a shot that should never be taken.

“At the end of the day, this is how we eat. You disrespect how we put food on our family’s table, come over here and catch this Superkick one time, Uce. Let me see what you think about it. Is this fake? Let me bang that Splash on your a** one time and see if you can take this, Uce. I guarantee you, Rick, he’ll be limping his a** right back to Hollywood or wherever he goes.”
