This past Sunday at Takeover Portland NXT superstars Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne, better known as the Broserweights, defeated the Undisputed Era to become the new NXT tag team champions. Riddle would take to Twitter to celebrate his first title reign since signing with WWE. He writes, "Bros, Stallions, Broserweights, Champions."
The message caught the eye of the Viper Randy Orton, who responded to Riddle's tweet with a message of his own. Orton states, "Hated you. Now I get it. Good luck. Also f**k off." See the exchange below.

Riddle and Orton did collide at last November's Survivor Series pay per view when The Bro pinned Orton for Team NXT. Riddle would later react to eliminating the Viper on the WWE's Performance Center Youtube channel (seen in the video above). Riddle has been in headlines recently for continuing to call out WWE champion Brock Lesnar and promising to retire him. This led to a backstage altercation at the Royal Rumble, a match that Riddle didn't have a very good showing in due to reported backstage heat.
