Randy Orton has never been one to shy away from confrontation or controversy. The WWE Superstar has the reputation of being very outspoken backstage and the same is true online.
Now The Viper is going to war on Twitter with AEW President Tony Khan. In a situation that began on November 18, Orton and Khan began trading shots on the social media platform and it doesn’t appear to be over yet.
The story began when CM Punk posted his thoughts on returning to the world of WWE, thanks to his recent analyst position with FOX. The network brought him in as part of WWE Backstage, marking the first time in five years that Punk has been directly associated with Vince McMahon’s company.
Khan saw the Tweet and decided to comment about WWE’s recent issues with Superstar travel following November 2’s Crown Jewel. That’s when Randy Orton came in from out of nowhere and posted a story about Tony’s father Shahid being investigated for corruption.
Khan responded to Orton and threw some dirt of his own in the process. This is not the first time that talents from both companies have traded shots on social media and it likely will not be the last, as this story is ongoing.
