Randy Orton and Tommaso Ciampa have engaged in a war of words in the aftermath of Sunday’s NXT TakeOver: In Your House.
It all started when Orton tweeted after the NXT show went off the air saying: “Heard #WWENXT #TakeoverInYourHouse was great! Slappin my my leg for you guys. Sincerely #legslap”
For those who need it spelled out for them, this is an obvious jab at the utilization of leg slaps to emphasize certain maneuvers.
Ciampa, who lost to Karrion Kross at TakeOver, responded this morning by writing: “My daughter has been having trouble sleeping. Luckily I found a remedy. Randy Orton matches. Better than NyQuil. Sincerely #AnEntireLockerRoomWhoBustedTheirAsses”
As you’d expect, The Viper couldn’t let things die and instead responded with a tweet which said: “Looks like I hurt the feelings of the self appointed lockeroom leader of a wrestling school. Let me know what time #legslap class starts so I can take my game to the next level.”
Ciampa is widely-regarded as one of the most respected voices in the NXT locker room. Thus far, he’s yet to respond to Orton’s latest insult.
Get your popcorn ready.
