Since the Randy Orton segment aired during last night’s RAW on the USA Network, WWE Legend Papa Shango has been trending on social media.
As noted, RAW had a segment in which Orton dealt with the Alexa Bliss feud. Orton had trouble breathing after a replay of last week’s controversial pentagram promo for Bliss and then began throwing up a thick, black liquid. He stumbled around to finish the segment and hurried away.
“The segment drew comparisons to the character of Papa Shango, played by Charles Wright from WWE Hall of Famer “The Godfather. Fans on social media noted that when they were feuding in the 1990s, the segment was similar to how Shango caused WWE Hall of Famer The Ultimate Warrior to ooze a black liquid.
As of Tuesday morning, Shango is still trending on Twitter.

The Orton vs. Bliss feud is believed to lead to the return of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 37 for a match with Orton. The Fiend has not been seen since Orton set him on fire in December at WWE TLC, which Orton acknowledged.
