WWE Universal champ Kevin Owens is a master of social media, especially Twitter. But in getting ready for his showdown against former WWE World champ Roman Reigns on next Monday, Sept. 12’s Raw, he may have taken on his greatest foe yet.
The Roman Empire.
Reigns’ supporters are not only passionate about their guy, they’re sick to death of being the punchline of a lot of (mostly played out) jokes from other wrestling fans.
KO doesn’t care.
First, he got on the Big Dog for cursing and grammar:
Around the world in 5 days!. Then I'm going to kick @FightOwensFight ass! Ahhhh yessir!!— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) September 6, 2016
Watch your language. And your punctuation...Why the period after the exclamation point? Get a grip, Roman. https://t.co/ZnqUDMROAM— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) September 7, 2016
Then, he plucked a retweet of Reigns’ original out for ridicule:
This person liked their own terrible tweet. I think that sums up Roman's fanbase perfectly. pic.twitter.com/J15mT1XmS4— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) September 7, 2016
And they’re coming for him, and anyone who dares call themselves an Owens fan.
IT’S FANBASE WAR!
Makes you miss the good old days (of last week) where we were all united against Amin Elhassan, right?
