Randy Orton became an even bigger enemy to hardcore wrestling fans with a series of tweets that resulted in one of the bigger controversies in the month of May. Meanwhile, Raw’s women’s division followed suit with a Twitter beef of their own. The good news in all this? Well, there probably isn’t any, but it is worth mentioning that Braun Strowman could be back sooner than we thought. 


Diving into Controversy 

Orton played the Internet Wrestling Community like a fiddle on Twitter (h/t Wrestling Inc) with not-so-nice comments about the independent wrestling scene. Not only did Orton echo criticisms tweeted out by former OVW trainer Rip Rogers, but he also doubled down with a facetious apology and managed to get into a Twitter feud with Bully Ray all by the end of Mother’s Day weekend. 

Orton’s comments have sparked equal parts outrage and philosophical debates all across social media, as fans of the highly physical independent wrestling circuit butt heads with more traditional wrestling minds. And while those in this war of words may never find common ground, Orton was the source of a very entertaining feud that has resulted in its own t-shirt.  


Return of the Monster? 

After suffering what was initially believed to be a short-term injury, reported Strowman was slated to miss up to six months. Fortunately, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Wrestling Inc), the six-month figure is a work, as Strowman is expected back for a potential blockbuster main event against Brock Lesnar.
