As noted yesterday, ESPN Radio's Amin Elhassan responded to a video that Kevin Owens' wife Karina posted of their son Owen's reaction to his father winning the WWE Universal Championship on RAW this past Monday night. Elhassan wrote:
Until someone told him it was scripted. https://t.co/Mzfwfj8AZ3— Amin Elhassan (@AminESPN) August 31, 2016
Cody Rhodes took to Twitter regarding the incident, but instead of replying to Elhassan, he called out WWE. WWE has a working relationship with ESPN, as they are featured on the weekly "Off The Top Rope" segment on Wednesday nights, and ESPN recently launched a WWE vertical on their site. Cody told WWE to have balls, and said that they should cut ties with ESPN, as seen below:

Cut ties w/TMZ-they ran my Mother's 911 call
Cut ties w/ESPN-they insulted a child
Have balls. "'Mainstream" ain't always worth it.
