Former WWE star Chris Jericho addressed fans’ criticism in regards to Christian dropping his newly World Heavyweight Championship to Randy Orton at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in Orlando, Florida.
He wrote on Twitter, “Hey everyone bitching about (Christian) losing the title, have you ever thought that maybe it’s just the beginning of a bigger storyline?”
Upon the news surfacing, fans bombarded WWE’s Twitter account with negative feedback. Joey Styles responded to upset fans with the following: “When sending hate tweets to myself or @WWE because of @Christian4Peeps, @RandyOrton and the World Heavyweight Championship, please be PG ;)”
Meanwhile, Orton responded to the negativity by retweeting the following message: “You won the title. Vince has no idea how much people are hating YOU on the Internet. I hope you continue to lose all your fans.”
He later added, “Biggest change from Raw to Smackdown…Ignorance x Jealousy + Spoilers = entertaining tweets!! Keep em coming!!”
