NXT Superstar Tommasso Ciampa and multiple-time World Champion Randy Orton has been involved in a trade of words over Twitter. Now, Kim Orton, Randy's wife, has joined in, taking a shot at the former NXT Champion on Twitter.
Kim Orton called Ciampa a man who takes credits for great matches without actually being able to put them together.
It all began when Randy Orton took a jibe at Ciampa on Twitter for slapping the leg of his opponent, Karrion Kross, in an attempt to make a move sound more impactful during their match at TakeOver: In Your House.
The NXT Superstar Ciampa fired back at The Viper, criticizing him on his wrestling style, drawing on the fact that it has been called boring by a vast percentage of fans in recent times.
He commented that his daughter has had some problem with sleeping, and he found that the perfect remedy was to make her watch Randy Orton matches.
Randy Orton replied to Ciampa, saying that he may have hurt the feelings of the self-appointed lockerroom leader of NXT. He continued by taking another jibe by asking Ciampa to inform him when the legslap class will start so that The Viper can join and improve his game and go to the next level.
Randy Orton is all set to face Edge at Backlash

Now, Randy Orton faces Edge in what is being billed as the 'Greatest Wrestling Match Ever', at Backlash. While the tagline has been debated continuously by fans, the Twitter exchange between Orton and Ciampa, almost assures that The Blackheart will be one of the Superstars who will be closely monitoring this battle between the former WWE Champions.
