Rhodes-Reigns Rivalry Bleeds Over To Twitter

The weird social media rivalry between Cody Rhodes and Roman Reigns continued after this weekend's ROH Global Wars show when ROH tweeted a video from Rhodes following a successful title defense.

Rhodes cut an in-character promo saying, "I came into Final Battle and I said I would give them their biggest houses in history, I would give Ring of Honor that. I cheated, I had The Young Bucks with me, Matt and Nick Jackson. And we gave them the biggest houses. Then I said I'm going give you the biggest pay-per-view buy rate that you've ever had. And I set that record at Best in the World when I won my very first World Heavyweight Championship. Then at Death Before Dishonor, with that shooter Minoru Suzuki, I broke my own record and I set a new record.

"It's no longer the company that defines the man, it's the man that defines the company. That company is Ring of Honor and the company I keep is the Bullet Club. So come at me and I will be smiling because I am the biggest damn draw in this entire industry. If you're someone who is competing with me for that title, you know exactly who you are and I know exactly what you should do -- kiss the ring."

Reigns was quick to fire a return shot, basically dropping a "look at the scoreboard" on his former WWE roster-mate:
