Now, if you do not know what the leg slap refers to, it is basically a technique used to make hits and kicks sound louder. The wrestler basically simultaneously slaps their leg while hitting the other wrestler.
The leg slap technique is a well-known technique. NXT wrestlers use it on a regular basis, and it does provide some amazing results for viewers.

Orton responded to the NXT locker room leader’s comments:
Looks like I hurt the feelings of the self appointed lockeroom leader of a wrestling school. Let me know what time #legslap class starts so I can take my game to the next level. https://t.co/c2ECCKL44f

Orton later posted his recycled response from 2017 dive controversy:
I really need to issue an apology…. pic.twitter.com/N8NqRZu9Es

The post upset many people in 2017 and Orton seems more than happy to fuel the fire again.
Orton’s Wife Fuels The Fire
Orton’s wife Kim Marie added some fuel to the fire on social media. Much like her husband, she attacked Ciampa’s credibility.

The feud has many fans divided. However, the large majority are supporting the NXT brand and its wrestlers.
Unfortunately, stuff like this is a trend with Randy Orton. Put it down to jealousy, because even after all the years of bullying and allegations of inappropriate behavior in the workplace, he still acts like a petulant child.
Bayley Gets New Nickname
Bayley is currently enjoying a great run as the SmackDown Women’s Champion and one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. The two belts gave her the idea of a new nickname, and she wants it to be quite different from the well-known “Becky Two Belts” monniker.
SHEEP!!!!! you better stop calling me “Bayley 2 Belts”!!!!!!!!! I’m not a Becky Lynch replacement!!!!!!! Instead, you can refer to me as BAYLEY DOS STRAPS!!!!!! Your loving Role Model! Thank you and good day!!!! #raw #SmackDown #nxt pic.twitter.com/TlVcI7OqCb

As you can imagine, fans are quite divided on the new nickname. Some fans are totally on board, while others resent the comparison with Becky two-belts.
Bayley’s title run has been quite the extensive one, but not everyone enjoyed it. Many fans on social media call for a new champion and are not impressed.
Which Championship Will Bayley Lose?
Bayley has been booked strong over the past year, but the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship win could mean change is in the works. In fact, it could be a sign that Bayley might lose her SmackDown Women’s Championship soon, making her focus on the tag titles.
A new SmackDown Women’s Champion would not be a bad thing, especially if it is around the waist of Lacey Evans. Of course, there are some other options that are worth exploring, but for now, Bayley remains on top of the division.
