WWE legend Randy Orton’s wife Kim has weighed into her husband’s Twitter row with NXT superstar Tommaso Ciampa.
The Viper battles Hall of Famer Edge this Sunday at Backlash in what is being billed as the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever.
But he has become embroiled with a war online in recent days with NXT’s Black Heart.
And now things have taken another twist after Kim waded into the argument.
It all began on Monday when Orton, 40, gave tongue-in-cheek praise to the NXT roster after Sunday’s Takeover: In Your House pay-per-view.
He tweeted: “Heard #NXTTakeoverInYourHouse was great! Slapping my leg for you guys. Sincerely. #legslap.”
His jive came with the “leg slap” reference, which is a nod to wrestlers slapping their thighs to create louder effect during moves.
Ex-NXT champion Ciampa hit back by saying: “My daughter has been having trouble sleeping. Luckily I found a remedy. Randy Orton matches. Better than NiQuill.”
Third-generation star Orton, a 13-time world champion, refused to take that lying down.
He responded: “Looks like I hurt the feelings of the self appointed lockeroom leader of a wrestling school. Let me know what time #legslap class starts to I can take my game to the next level.”
That looked to be it until he received support from his wife, who he wed in 2015, to keep the argument going by having a go at the coaching given to NXT stars to construct their matches.
Kim said: “Isn't that the same guy who took credit for all those 'great' matches that he DIDNT put together?”
The 35-year-old Ciampa is an established performer in his own right and is among the biggest names on the NXT roster.
But he suffered a crushing defeat on Sunday in just over six minutes to new star Karrion Kross at Takeover.
