WWE superstar Randy Orton likes his space—especially at the gym.

That became very clear to a fan of his at a gym in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where Orton was training before before Monday’s WWE Smackdown event.

Martin then snapped a photo of Orton—and 'The Viper' lost his cool.

“He saw me snap the picture and came up to me got in my face and said, ‘What the [expletive] are you doing? I said no [expletive] pictures! Are you [expletive] stupid?’” Martin said.

Former WWE and WCW superstar Lance Storm also weighed in on Orton's run-in, defending his fellow wrestling star and arguing that the fan's behavior was "ignorant gym etiquette and straight up rude."
