Matt Riddle and Randy Orton are engaging in what appears to be the start of a new Twitter War for “The King of Bros” and “The Viper,” both of whom are known to be somewhat of a social media assassin in terms of drumming up controversy with their words.
As noted, Riddle and Pete Dunne captured the NXT tag team titles at NXT TakeOver: Portland this past Sunday, after which Riddle celebrated by tweeting that they are now champions.
This didn’t go unnoticed by Orton.
‘The Viper’ commented about it on his own Twitter page.
“Hated you, now I get it,” Orton’s post began before concluding, “Good luck. Also f*ck off. “
Riddle, never one to shy away from a verbal war-of-words, took to Twitter once again to issue a response to the longtime WWE veteran.

I woke up at the crack of noon today and saw this, and I all I could think was “Randy is the Coolest! Also don’t smash my head with a chair bro” #viper #bro #stallion https://t.co/tfMV3L6kZX
