Sri Lanka is going through a major economic crisis and its citizens remain in dire conditions. The failure of the government to bail the country out of trouble led to country-wide protests. Thousands of protesters wearing helmets and waving Sri Lankan flags broke police barricades and entered President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s residence. The President had to be shifted to Army Headquarters.
With the residence of the highest official in the country all by themselves, the protestors forgot their pain for a while and enjoyed the lavish lifestyle on offer inside the house. While some watched TV lying in the bedrooms, a few took baths inside the big bathrooms. A few people also posed in the meeting rooms pretending to be officials of the country.
But the best footage came from the master bedroom where a bunch of youth protestors gathered to recreate a WWE Championship match. Three to four young men aged in their 20s were seen fighting like WWE wrestlers with the bed as their supposed ring.
Meanwhile, one of the individuals took the opportunity to become the referee. One of the protesters also created the famous ‘Randy Orton pose’ where he casually and smugly, held both of his arms to the side, above his head.
The pictures and the videos of Sri Lankan citizens were shared widely on social media. The video from the master bedroom also went viral in no time. “And don’t miss the WWE championship held in master bedroom,” wrote a user while replying to a tweet consisting of pictures of the citizens inside the President’s residence.
