Last Monday, while RAW was in Seattle, Kevin Owens and Elias were heartily booed by the hometown crowd when the duo mocked the fact that the city no longer had a NBA basketball team.

The city was previously known as the home of the SuperSonics, before the team moved to Oklahoma City during the 2008-2009 season.

Even though the Sonics, as they are lovingly known and remembered as, may no longer be in Seattle, insults to the team are not taken lightly. When Owens and Elias insulted the team last Monday, they found themselves the recipients of boos that lasted at least six minutes straight.

It’s not just the Seattle faithful that Owens and Elias have managed to piss off though, but also several former Sonics players. Though some of these players have moved on, it seems that they still have a soft spot for their former team.

The first to react was Brent Barry, who played for the Sonics from 1999 to 2008, before moving to the San Antonio Spurs where he was part of a NBA Championship team twice.

In his tweet Barry drew the attention of another Sonics alum, Detlef Schrempf, towards Owens and Elias’ diss. Schremph played for the Sonics from 1993 to 1999 and became an assistant coach for the team from 2005 to 2007.

Schremph’s response? To wonder if they should challenge the two WWE Superstars to a match, either in the ring or on the court.

It was at this point that WWE’s Renee Young chimed in, saying it should be in the wrestling ring.

To which Schrempf responded, if Young could help make it happen, he was game.

Currently there is no response from Owens or Elias who are set to face John Cena and Bobby Lashley during WWE Super Show-Down.
