Randy Orton has continued his ruthless Twitter antics by taking shots at fellow WWE superstar Zack Ryder.
WWE Superstar Randy Orton has a more mellow and quieter personality compared to most other wrestlers, but he's never been afraid to take shots at some of his coworkers. His latest target is Zack Ryder.
Ryder—who was betrayed by Mojo Rawley on Tuesday's episode of SmackDown Live— answered fan questions on his Twitter page. That set off this rather interesting Twitter fight between Ryder and Randy Orton.

Though this Twitter exchange could set up a rivalry between the two superstars (who've yet to face off one-on-one), Ryder is likely just going to be starting a feud with his Hype Bros partner.
Ryder and Rawley worked together as a tag team in NXT, but a knee injury kept Ryder out of action and caused The Hype Bros tandem to briefly split up. Rawley would go on to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy at WrestleMania 33, and Ryder returned a couple of months later.
The two lost a match against the Bludgeon Brothers on SmackDown, causing Rawley to lose his cool and turn on Ryder. That rivalry will all but surely just start beginning now.
As for Orton, his next feud remains unclear. He was part of Team SmackDown at Survivor Series but was the fourth member of his squad eliminated. Team Raw would go on to win the match.
The Legend Killer defeated Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33 to Bray Wyatt but dropped the belt to Jinder Mahal at Backlash. Orton would lose the subsequent rematches and had a brief feud with Rusev. It'll be interesting to see who he faces off against next.
But following this epic Twitter battle between the two superstars, it's safe to assume they'd be able to cut some excellent promos if they were to feud. If that does happen, Ryder's feud with Rawley will have to end first.
