Kanye West is getting clowned by a professional wrestler on social media after recently debuting padded knee-high sock boots.
On Sunday (May 14), renowned independent pro wrestler, Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder in the WWE, hit up Instagram to share a similar sentiment as many others across the internet regarding Kanye West’s most recent fashion statement.
Upon catching a glimpse of Ye unapologetically rocking a fresh set of Muy Thai-style kick pads along with some socks and skin-tight leggings, the Long Island, N.Y. sports entertainer not only finds Kanye’s new look hilarious but also thinks the rapper-producer-fashion exec may be next in line for a budding career in the squared circle.
“Kanye is wearing kickpads now?!” Matt Cardona captioned the now-viral photo below of Kanye West and his rumored wife, Bianca Censori. “He looks like an Indy worker now. Is he coming after THE INDY GOD?! Be a man Kanye..c’mon don’t be scared…you’re running from Broski…that’s what I heard!!!”
The self-proclaimed “Indy God” of professional wrestling isn’t the only one who thinks Ye is ready for a run between the ropes. When Cardona offered up his challenge in jest via Instagram, many fans were quick to comment on Kanye West’s ring-ready gear.
“Ye dressed like a [WWE] 2K created character,” one IG user said in reference to the WWE’s popular pro wrestling video game.
Another chimed in: “He about to wrestle at Wrestlemania.”
“Got them Jericho 3s,” a knowledgeable wrestling-hip-hop-footwear enthusiast wrote.
Kanye West and his seemingly combat sports-inspired streetwear have been trending heavily over the past 24 hours ever since he and his reported significant other were seen out together enjoying a casual stroll in Los Angeles. The controversial Donda rapper-producer has been mercilessly ridiculed by people across the internet.
