Randy Orton has taken to Twitter to defend WWE after Soulja Boy used the word “fake” to describe Vince McMahon’s company.

Soulja Boy is an American rapper who shot to fame in 2007 following the release of his debut single, "Crank That." The 30-year-old wrote on Twitter that the rap game is "faker than WWE," which prompted RETRIBUTION member T-BAR to reveal just how real wrestling can be.

Randy Orton went one step further by daring Soulja Boy to step up and fight in WWE. The 14-time World Champion praised another rapper, Bad Bunny, for showing respect to the business since he began appearing in WWE in January 2021.
