Over the weekend, WWE Champion “The Viper” Randy Orton, struck independent wrestlers of all sizes, shapes, and ages with a “Tweet read round the world.”
Here is the tweet in question, sent no doubt after a few cold ones after a SmackDown live event in Denmark…

This rant set off a pretty extensive chain reaction on Twitter. Some professionals, like Low-Ki, took offense to the Tweet in question…
Unfortunately, you're protected in the wwe. Come out to the real world and test your tantrum with adults https://t.co/AkwK3XNI80

While others decided to take the high road and make light of the comments..
Gotta love those Young Bucks who took time away from counting all their sweet merch money to accept Orton’s apology.
Any way you slice it, these words are going to create a dialogue through the internet wrestling community.
