Someone could photo shop Roman onto theory and recreate him throwing this "little brother" out of the club. https://t.co/ID7mHKIydO— Brian Cage (@MrGMSI_BCage) October 19, 2021
Ruby should meet Roman at the club…— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) October 18, 2021
The comments by Cage and Jericho are a repsonse to Roman saying to Complex about CM Punk and AEW, "So, I mean, when it comes down to it, I’ll throw him and pretty much the rest of that roster out the club no problem. They’re just little brothers, you know?"
Junior dos Santos, who headlined AEW Rampage, issued a challenge to Roman as well.
Ruby Soho and the Bunny had GIFs speak louder than words.
And of course, the Young Bucks updated their bio.
AEW Owner Tony Khan was also fired up about the ratings and calling out WWE leaking the fast national numbers. You can find his tweets by clicking here.
