Morons....— Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) February 14, 2017
Considering you almost knocked yourself out headbutting a door, you should probably reconsider calling other people morons. https://t.co/sI9ig1P5oN— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 14, 2017
Ok, Bill. I've been digging holes for myself for 17 years and I'm doing pretty good. See you at Fastlane. https://t.co/vUqamkWP19— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 14, 2017
.@FightOwensFight Take lots of pictures with it Kevin. Remember the moment. At Fastlane, it's GONE.— Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) February 14, 2017
Take lots of pictures? Remember the moment?...What are you, my dad? Stop telling me what to do! And no, I will NOT turn down my music! https://t.co/7RCmurkFLK— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 14, 2017
.@FightOwensFight Well... If "Goldberg" or "Sir" doesn't work for you, than yes, Daddy is fine.— Bill Goldberg (@Goldberg) February 14, 2017
I'm sure that in your mind, that sounded super cool and badass but it's just really, really creepy. Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day, Bill! https://t.co/DA7XgiP8wI— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 14, 2017
In case you didn’t know...
Goldberg is set to challenge Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship at FastLane in a couple of weeks’ time. They have gone back and forth on Twitter now, with both men trying to get in the heads of their opponent.
Owens and Jericho brought out former WWE star Gillberg on Raw to mock the former WCW Champion, but Goldberg hit back using his Twitter account.
The heart of the matter
Social media plays a massive part in the current world of professional wrestling. One of the most prolific users of Twitter in the WWE is Kevin Owens so his verbal jousting with Goldberg here is not a massive surprise.
It’s a good way to pull fans into the feud and gives both men the opportunity to push the other to the limit ahead of the big match at FastLane.
With only a few weeks to go until that big match, you can expect to see Owens and Goldberg continue this kind of back and forth on Twitter, as well as during segments on Raw.
WWE likes to use all kinds of ways to continue a feud, Twitter is a valuable tool in the battles between modern day professional wrestling stars.
Kevin Owens is one of the best when it comes to using Twitter. He regularly uses it to call out fans, talk trash with his opponents and just to generally get his views across. In the modern day, it’s not unheard of to see feuds being played out on social media.
This again goes to show that Owens and WWE know exactly how to get a feud over the line towards what will be a massive match in the build up to WrestleMania 33.
