It's on like Donkey Kong

What's the story?

WWE Superstars love performing in the ring and they also really enjoy spending their spare time playing video games. Randy Orton and AJ Styles recently played a little game of Mario Kart and Orton didn't let The Phenomenal One forget when he beat him. But Styles claimed to have good excuses.

In case you didn't know...

Being a WWE Superstar is serious business but they also have their fair amount of down time. When they're not working out or waiting at the airport during their next eventual layover, they love playing video games.

Xavier Woods even made a nice side endeavour out of video game culture with his Up Up Down Down YouTube channel.

The heart of the matter

Randy Orton and AJ Styles recently had a battle outside the ring. The two played a serious game of Mario Kart, and when Styles lost to The Viper, the latter just had to rub it in.

AJ Styles had a logical reason for why he lost, which you can find below.

Randy Orton wasn't buying it and he replied in a way only he could.


What's next?

As the pro wrestling business' outstanding demands continue and the video game industry becomes more portable, the two worlds will most likely continue to further intertwine. There are likely to be even more feuds start in the virtual world as time goes on.

Author's take

Sometimes I wonder if WWE Superstars take video games more seriously than the results of their matches. Everyone wants to win in the ring, but it's up to Vince McMahon who wins and loses. But in the video game world, it's all real and an even playing field.
