Randy Orton finally reacted to his recent back-and-forth with NXT star Tommaso Ciampa and revealed that he wanted to work with him. Before his recent backlash with Greatest Wrestling Match Ever with Edge, Randy took to social media to take a few shots at Tommaso. It all started after the NXT takeover: At Your House, Randy posted, “Heard #WWENXT #TakeoverInYourHouse was great! Slappin my leg for you guys. Sincerely #legslap.”
Reacting to Randy’s comment, Tommaso took sarcasm at his performance and said he was using Randy’s matches to cast his daughter.Randy tweeted in response, “Looks like I hurt the feelings of the self-appointed locker room leader of a wrestling school. Let me know what time #legslap class starts so I can take my game to the next level,” During his latest interview with CBS Sports, the wrestler stated that he wants Tommaso to grow and succeed.
He explained“I think with the kind of hustle Tommaso has shown he has, I think he’s perfectly capable. I think he’s a big fish in a relatively small pond. I don’t mean that as a knock, to be clear. But I want to see him try to become a big fish in a bigger pond. I would like to see him under the pressure to have something like the greatest wrestling match ever,” . Randy stated that he would like to face the NXT wrestler in the wrestling ring.
He said, “Tommaso can be in the same boat, and I think there’s a way to do it. I’m hoping that, soon, I can get in the ring with him and we can go out there and get the crowd interested with good promos and good stories and we can go somewhere with it. We can make some money. I’ve seen the top and I’ve seen the bottom. I’m not saying NXT is the bottom. I’m just saying, you’re one step away from being at the top. Don’t stop there,”
