As previously noted, Braun Strowman mocked “flippy flipper” wrestlers in a tweet and several people responded including AEW’s Chris Jericho, WWE’s Mustafa Ali, and NJPW’s Will Ospreay.
During the November 18th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown, there was a backstage confrontation between Strowman and Ricochet to hype up their World Cup tournament match on next week’s show. Ricochet told Strowman, “You are looking way to far into the future. If you keep looking past these ‘flippy flippers’ – your words not mine – it might come back to bite you.”
