With the Cricket World cup captivating the whole nation, it’s no surprise that half the country’s big names are seated for the games. Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh had a thrilling India-Pak game this Sunday which was evident on social media posts capturing him meeting with the Indian cricket team as he prepares for his upcoming sports-drama ‘83’.

While it’s all fun and games for Ranveer, his tweet caught the attention of WWE ‘manager’ Paul Heyman who took a jab at the superstar for stealing his very popular war cry.
Fans may remember Heyman rooting for Lesnar by shouting, “Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat,” every time the latter steps inside the ring.
ARE YOU F’N KIDDING ME???????????

The phrase became prominent when Lesnar returned to WWE and is even printed on the back of Lesnar’s outfits that he wears while entering the ring in WWE.
However, Heyman had earlier cautioned the official Twitter account of the Cricket World Cup on the same issue after it praised MS Dhoni in January 2019 saying, “Eat. Sleep. Finish games. Repeat. Life.”
My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency. https://t.co/sGtIALzso1

It’s going to be fun to see what Singh’s response is to this would be and fans have already started to advocate for a fight between Ranveer Singh and Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania.
