Tommaso Ciampa is the top heel in NXT and he has done a tremendous job in recent months during his feud with Johnny Gargano. Now, Ciampa has his sights set on the NXT Championship and it’s looking like he will be the next one in line to challenge Aleister Black, perhaps at Takeover: Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.
The Ciampa/Black feud kicked into high gear on this week’s episode of NXT TV when Ciampa attacked Black in a backstage segment. As usual, when it comes to these two, it was a good segment. It ended after Ciampa executed a draping DDT, a move that is seen by most fans in the United States as one of Randy Orton’s signature moves.
In wrestling, you can get heat if you use someone else’s move especially if you don’t get their approval. Well, Orton found out about it (after he was tagged by Goldust) and he didn’t say much but some fans had their own interpretation on his tweet. Check out the move below and then scroll down for Orton’s reaction.

What do you think? Should Orton be bothered by this or should he brush it off? My guess is that this was approved by someone backstage so if there is any heat on Ciampa then perhaps it should be directed at whoever approved the move to be used in this segment.
