The replies to a WWE promotional message about their weekend house show in Mississippi turned into a battleground between the Roman Empire and some haters. Which undoubtedly happens everyday on the social media, but this time, Roman Reigns himself decided to step into the fray.
Here’s how it started...

Do you wrestle , do you stay in the Ring 24/7 ? To say/judge that ? A lot Wrestlers he had Matches with say otherwise and praise him !— RomanReigns-Empire (@RREmpire_) June 10, 2017
That brought self-identified “future pro wrestler, currently in training” Ian Porter and his CZW logo profile pic (pin that piece of trivia; it’s important later) into the mix:
I wrestle and I say he sucks. A 30 minute match and he'll use maybe 4 actual wrestling moves. Otherwise it's "Roman strong *bangs chest*"— Ian Porter (@HeelDegenerate) June 12, 2017
Lol ok sweetie..here's a tip, some of us don't like @WWE or their bs politics. We're happier where we're at.— Ian Porter (@HeelDegenerate) June 12, 2017
Why Alexia went from slamming the Big Dog to seeming to stick up for him is a mystery for another day, because this is where “The Truth Reigns” hits the imaginary PA system in the TwitterDome!
Let ME give you a tip amateur. @WWE is the Top of the Mountain in Pro Wrestling. A view you'll never deserve or get to enjoy. #Facts https://t.co/sHf9ebYmi7— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) June 12, 2017
Sensing his moment, Porter basically hasn’t stopped Tweeting since being recognized by Roman. It’s included some self-promotion, challenging Reigns to matches which will never happen while tagging other WWE Superstars and some offensive pleas for attention which he’d probably write off as “getting heat”. All of which earned him this rebuke from the owner of his beloved CZW:
He has nothing to do with us— DJ HYDE (@DJHyde_1) June 13, 2017
Roman wasn’t done either, though! Either because he was enjoying responding to his detractors without the filter he has to employ on screen or, as Geno would say, because he was GOTTEN TO, Reigns picked a couple other Tweets for replies:
And your sorry ass was positioned at the top thanks to family.— Jean Loss Fap (@servinfools) June 13, 2017
You were handed your position. You never earned it.
Yea I guess working my butt off 5 days a week while being away from my wife and kids for the last 7 years is being "handed" it. #DumbAssMark https://t.co/1SlLhPdEjf— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) June 13, 2017
How about the other guys that work their butt off and get away from their wife and kids for years too and still jobbing?— Androctonus (@FX7scorpion) June 13, 2017
Oh yea, I forgot they are "jobbing" for free! Clueless #DumbAssMark. BTW all our schedules and responsibilities aren't the same. #B2R https://t.co/tbx5BW7Yvl— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) June 13, 2017
There you go. From now on, please refer to “haters who hate their lives” as #DumbAssMarks and give us your take on the POLARIZING Roman vs. the internet below.
