Current WWE Superstar Kevin Owens challenged 71 year old singer Elton John to a match at Wrestlemania after John was forced to cancel his Orlando, Florida concert 30 minutes after it was supposed to start due to an ear infection. Representatives for Elton John issued an apology to fans saying that the lack of hearing on John’s part could affect the quality of the music and that he wanted to give the audience the best show possible. Both the cancelled Orlando and Tampa Bay Florida shows will be re-scheduled in the near future. Alas, wrestler Owens and his wife were in attendance at the Orlando concert and were none too happy at the late cancellation.
Owens responded on Twitter with these humorous comments to Elton John:
The last time I wore red heart-shaped glasses for another man before tonight was on January 12, 1996 at the Montreal Forum. I was 11 years old. It was for Shawn Michaels!
I’m never wearing red heart-shaped glasses for another man again! @eltonofficial
Hey, @eltonofficial, nobody ruins my wife and I’s date night except me!
I’ve fought men in their 70’s before, I can do it again!
We get the feeling the challenge will be spurned, but even so, imagine the hilarious possibilities…
