Jaxson Ryker received praise from Donald Trump Jr after posting a controversial text.
We’ve reported on a lot of the backlash Ryker received for a tweet where he praised President Trump. He’s also had his supporters, like Donald Trump Jr. There was some question about whether Ryker was playing up his gimmick, but previous remarks made from Ryker in 2019 seem to confirm these are his actual beliefs.
The tweet has been making headlines due to how many current and past WWE superstars have addressed him. Many saw the tweet as tone deaf due to what’s happening in America this week. It also begs the question of whether or not he’ll see any kind of repercussions backstage. Booker T once pointed out that Big Cass had his enemies in the WWE for being so outspoken about politics.
