Fortnite player Soleil ‘EwOk’ Wheeler was so happy after receiving a gift from fellow streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins that she broke out his iconic ‘Pon Pon’ dance to show her appreciation.

Back in August, the 28-year-old revealed that he had partnered up with sportswear giants Adidas as part of a new sponsorship deal, and since then has been sending out gifts of Ninja-branded Adidas apparel to content creators and friends.

FaZe Clan’s EwOk became the last popular personality to get her hands on some sick Ninja merch, revealing that the Mixer streamer had sent her a jacket, and celebrating in the only way she knew how.

YouTube: AdidasNinja revealed he had signed with Adidas, and sent EwOk a gift from his collection.

The Pon-Pon became a huge part of Ninja’s streams when he first transitioned into battle royale games, standing up and performing the dance in between matches or after securing wins back on H1Z1.

While he doesn’t break it out that often anymore, it’s still widely recognized as Ninja’s signature move, so after opening the gift on stream, EwOk decided there was only one thing to do.

In a tweet sent from her Twitter account on Thursday, September 5, the 13-year-old thanked Ninja for the jacket he had sent her, before launching into her own rendition of the Pon-Pon.

EwOk has become a star in the Fortnite community, become the first female to join FaZe Clan, while showing off her insane talents at Fortnite.

What makes her accomplishments even more impressive is the fact that she is deaf, and after receiving a host from Tim ‘Timthetatman’ Betar, has skyrocketed up the Twitch charts and remained as one of the game’s brightest stars ever since.

Both her skill and infectous positivity brings viewers to her stream in thousands, but whether we’ll ever see her hit the dance move again remains to be seen. It could just be a one time thing, but who knows, maybe if Ninja keeps sending Adidas gear, EwOk will keep the Pon Pon going.

Many people have called out Jale Paul after he mopped the floor with Nate Robinson, but it’s hard to name a better candidate than NHL star Evander Kane, who said he’s keen to “wreck” him in the ring. 

Jake Paul set the world on fire after knocking out Nate Robinson in two rounds during the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout. He was the bigger and more experienced fighter, but he still put on an absolute clinic.

In his post-fight interview, Jake Paul was riding a high and laid down a series of ambitious challenges. He listed everyone from Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis to his brother, Logan Paul.

However, other big names have challenged him, too, including Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji. But while they would all be formidable foes, NHL star Evander Kane has eclipsed them all after he let loose on social media.

Evander Kane, an experienced fighter in his own right, flirted with the idea of taking on Jake Paul himself. 

“Jeeezzzz maybe I should take on Jake Paul next,” he said. It’s been liked almost 15,000 times, and hundreds of fans left comments urging him to go ahead with it.

All the hype prompted him to follow up on the tweet and double down on his challenge. “Yo Jake Paul, I’d wreck ya,” he said. “Easy to beat up guys with no experience and much smaller.” 

Evander Kane also went a step further and named a time and a place. “August 31st, 2021 Vegas,” he said. “We can see if you really about that action.”

Unfortunately, Jake Paul hasn’t responded yet. To be fair, he’s probably still celebrating and figuring out what to do next.

“Waiting for that answer,” Kane added, while sharing his previous post. Unfortunately, all that he can do at this point is play the waiting game.

Jake Paul is hot property at the moment; it seems like everyone wants a piece of him. In the end, though, the ball is in his court, and he’ll likely make a decision based on what’s best for him.

Still, Kane is one of the more exciting prospective opponents he could face. The thought of them fighting is generating a lot of buzz, and it’s gaining more traction as time goes on.
